1000 Friends of Oregon is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that advocates for land-use planning. It was incorporated on October 11, 1974, following the creation of Oregon's statewide land-use system in 1973 by then-governor Tom McCall and attorney Henry Richmond. By 1994, the organization had about 2,500 contributors and supporters. Richmond served as the organization's first executive director.

Friends is a music studio album recording by OREGON (Jazz ive Rock) released in 1977 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. 1. Interstate (8:47) 2. Gospel Song (2:31) 3. Grazing Dreams (3:37) 4. Slumber Song (5:58) 5. Time Remembered (4:47) 6. First Thing In The Morning (3:24) 7. Love Over Time (3:50) 8. Timeless (8:21).

One hears that Oregon weren't "friends" much as they recorded this album. The brilliant jazz-folk-world quartet was having some interpersonal difficulties, which resulted in an album rather like the later Beatles albums: a collection of performances defined by the respective sounds of the individual members, rather than by the collaborative muse. The collaborations worth noting on this disc were with musicians outside the group, such as conguero David Earle Johnson on Towner's Latin-inflected "Interstate," and Bennie Lee Wallace on the sax showcase "Gospel.
