3's a Crowd was a folk rock band from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, that existed from 1964 to 1969.
The group is particularly notable for its association with Cass Elliott, who co-produced the group's sole album release.
The band consists of Steve "Lips" Kudlow (vocals, guitar), Robb Reiner (drums) and Chris Robertson (bass).
To date, the band has released fifteen studio albums, and has been cited as having influenced many notable heavy metal groups, including Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax and Metallica.
The album spawned their first single, "Fast Train", which received fairly steady airplay on radio stations across Canada and established Myles Goodwyn as the band's main songwriter.
The single's success led the band's label to ask for a second album amid the first of many lineup changes: Jim Henman left the band in the fall of 1971 and was replaced by Jim Clench.
Adams elected to sing until they found a singer, but they never found one.
