Firefall is the self-titled debut from Firefall which saw its release in April 1976.

It featured the major hit single "You Are the Woman" which reached #9 on the Billboard Hot 100. Two other tracks achieved minor success on the charts: "Livin' Ain't Livin'" at #42 and "Cinderella" at #34. This album became the fastest record to achieve gold status in Atlantic Records history.

Firefall is an American country rock band that formed in Boulder, Colorado, United States, in 1974. It was founded by Rick Roberts, who had been in the Flying Burrito Brothers, and Jock Bartley, who had been Tommy Bolin's replacement in Zephyr.
