Product Description

Album #2 might have been even better than the first, with Bluebird; Broken Arrow , and Rock 'n' Roll Woman among the classics.

Amazon.com

Here's where Stephen Stills and Neil Young's on-and-off partnership fell apart for the first time. The liner notes to BS's debut album had announced, "Steve is the leader, but we all are" and described Neil Young as "hot and cold," which in retrospect seems like a warning. Young appears to have at least one foot out the door already, the ambitious "Broken Arrow" and "Expecting to Fly" clearly pointing toward a solo career. And for all the timeless excellence of Young's "Mr. Soul," it's Stills's "Bluebird" that defines Buffalo Springfield Again, much as his "For What It's Worth" defined its predecessor. In one song, the group demonstrates astonishing versatility (from rock to folk to bluegrass), without the saccharine touches that mar Stills's post-Springfield work. But for all their considerable recorded achievements, Buffalo Springfield always felt like a band that never reached its potential. --David Wolf

The Byrds gave us chiming guitars and then, with the addition of Gram Parsons, a pure Country sound that was better than 90% of what Nashville was then cranking out. Buffalo Springfield gave us a rock 'n' roll band that grew from the folk circuit, from Stills, who brought Country and the oldest, most traditional folk, from the South, meeting with Furay, who brought a mild Country sensibility. Richie had met Neil Young, who had been part of the Canadian folk scene, briefly in New York. The Country roots origin of Buffalo Springfield were completed with Dewey Martin, who'd played with The Dillards. Along with Neil's friend Bruce Palmer, this quintet was a rock band simply trying to make the best music, which meant it must avoid teeny bop pop and Tin Pan Alley cliches, musically and lyrically, and that had them reworking Country and folk sources with a rock 'n' roll heart and attitude.

This is the best Buffalo Springfield album, and its importance merits 5 stars. My down ranking to 4 stars is because this should be a remastered version with at least one added cut: the 9 minute jam version of 'Bluebird' that apparently is not available anywhere today. Yes, all things considered, I prefer the 4 minute, originally released version and rank it a Classic, but the 9 minute version is perhaps more important to rock history, for it was an indispensable source for especially Southern rock bands as they forged long, jamming epics such as 'Free Bird' and 'High Tides and Green Grass.'

Beyond that, this album is loaded. In addition to 'Bluebird,' 'Mr. Soul' is an all-time Classic, and 'Broken Arrow, 'Rock 'N' Roll Woman,' and 'Expecting to Fly' are all brilliant. Richie's 'A Child's Claim to Fame' is nearly as good. No song is a throwawy.

But I can't be satisfied until I get the 9 minute 'Bluebird' on CD.

It is not advertised much, but look for this CD as a remaster - the sound is much improved and excellent. The back of the CD states HDCD and "Remastered from Original Source Tapes" Its still 9.99, so either get this new or used from a seller that assures it is the remastered version. This has some of Neil's best songs and with one exception, all the tracks are excellent.

Released the same fabulous year as the Beatles' SGT. PEPPER, BUFFALO SPRINGFIELD AGAIN is, in my humble opinion, is truly its equal, if not even better. Especially when one knows the turbulent circumstances going on behind the music - the conflicts between all of the members of the band. Pick up a copy of Richie Furay's book about the band, it's fascinating. I purchased the HDCD remastered copy of this recording the other day. Yes, it does sound better. Various instruments can be heard much better, however, the bass is really pronounced, whereas, in the original, the bass was diminished. All of these songs are gems. Diverse lyrical subjects; a good mix of barnburner rockers with slower stuff; the three guitar front line - Furay, Stills, and Young are quite dynamic, as well as the bass playing of Bruce Palmer, and drumming of Dewey Martin. Some of the songs feature complex arrangements, especially Young's Expecting To Fly. I was very fortunate to see this band live in 1967. They opened for the Good Vibrations era Beach Boys at the Penn Theater in Pittsburgh one cold rainy evening. Buffalo Springfield blew the Boys from the beach out of the joint. As far as my old copy of the disc, I plan to give it to my son, Neil, and if that sounds coincidental, it isn't.

Despite the fact that Buffalo Springfield was around for no more than a year and a half or so, their impact on American music has been immense. This was the group's second album and by this time their was already dissension in the band. Despite the arguments Buffalo Springfield still functions and sounds like a band. Buffalo Springfield Again is easily the band's best album.
The two dominant musical forces here are Stephen Stills and Neil Young. Most of their songs take up the record leaving only 2 leftover spots for Richie Furay. Furay makes his songwriting debut here. Both of his songs are excellent in my opinion. A CHILD'S CLAIM TO FAME is a catchy country rock classic and SAD MEMORY maybe the ultimate love ballad of the Summer of love (1967). However Furay's tunes although awesome on their own are overshadowed by the musical brilliance of Stills and Young here.
Young's rocker MR.SOUL opens the album with a bang. EXPECTING TO FLY is a spacey love ballad of wonderful beauty. BROKEN ARROW is a very unique tune that discusses the life of the band is some ways. Neil Young's compositions here are some of his finest yet they seem to scream out the fact that a split between Young and the band was emminent and sadly it was.
As for Stills the majority of songs on this album are his own compositions. His classic rocker BLUEBIRD is the album's highlight hit but other energetic rockers like HUNG UPSIDE DOWN (with Furay on lead vocals) and ROCK 'N ROLL WOMAN are almost as good and both tunes definetly had the potential to be big hits. GOOD TIME BOY is easily the weakest song on this album however it's still a great tune and I was quite impressed with drummer Dewey Martin's lead vocal. EVERYDAYS is Stills' most bizarre tune on this album.
