Biography

Biography by Richie Unterberger

Apart from the Byrds, no other American band had as great an impact on folk-rock and country-rock -- really, the entire Californian rock sound -- than Buffalo Springfield. The group's formation is the stuff of legend: driving on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, Stephen Stills and Richie Furay spotted a hearse that Stills was sure belonged to Neil ...

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great American Rock and Roll Band at Their Best April 4, 2007
Format:Vinyl
Obviously, the Buffalo Springfield Box Set makes this redundant. What's interesting to me is why, for all the years between the release of this double LP and the release of the box set, this was never released on CD. In its time, it clearly overshadowed the previous greatest hits collection with its addition of the lesser known songs from the three Buffalo Springfield records, in particular some of Stephen Stills' best material like "Pretty Girl Why?" and "Questions." And, most striking of all, the legendary 13 minute "Bluebird" with the guitar battle between Stills and Young in the middle and the absence of the clearly added on banjo coda. Again, for reasons that I've never read, this cut did not make it onto the box set. Nonetheless, for years, this was the collection for the serious Springfield fan. If you are a completist, then you do need to own this for the unreleased "Bluebird," if just to hear Stills at his most "soulfull" (you'll understand if you hear the cut).

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have December 8, 2007
Format:Vinyl
I have owned this LP since 1982. At the time, I could not find the second and third Buffalo Springfield albums. When I bought this two record collection, I did not know that it contained the long version of 'Bluebird,' but that would have been enough for me to purchase the double album even if I could have gotten all three of the band's albums. I actually prefer the shorter 'Bluebird,' but the longer one is a masterpiece of its own.

I have heard two rumors about why the longer 'Bluebird' was not placed on the box set, but as I have no idea if either is true, I will repeat neither. I will close simply by saying that as this LP is the only way you are going to get your hands on a copy of the version, you should be willing to pay any price for it.

But you cannot buy my copy at any price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buffalo Springfield: A Beginning April 1, 2008
Format:Vinyl
Buffalo Springfield was neither the first vehicle for nor the first group to record and release works by founding members Richie Furay, Stephen Stills, and Neil Young. Rather, it was a sounding board and a starting point for a new direction in rock and the beginning of stardom for its aforementioned members (and even later, Jim Messina of Loggins and Messina fame). Stephen Stills would emerge as the group's main songwriter but, as with Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, he would soon be surpassed for quality of work by peer and colleague Neil Young. The dynamics between the two are simultaneously famous and infamous, yet the mutual admiration and inspiration is evident on this and all future Stills-Young projects.

Emerging at a time when The Beatles had led the British rock brigade into America, and the US had replied with the Dylan-inspired folk rock of The Byrds and The Mamas and The Papas, The Buffalo Springfield would introduce more of a country flavor to the spectrum (a la The Band, latter-day Byrds, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and The Flying Burrito Brothers). Like The Band, Springfield would include both Americans and Canadians, just as CSNY would add an Englishman and former Hollie to the mix. Not necessarily making this a melting pot, it does bring to the fore different cultural elements and an innovative blend of ideas.

This release serves as an appropriate crash course to the form, both in its advantages and disadvantages, and as an excellent introduction to the musical careers of Stephen Stills and Neil Young (Furay's light not shining quite as brightly even though he would achieve some standard of success with Poco). As the saying goes, "the best is yet to come!"
