Buffalo Springfield

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 Young, a Canadian he had crossed paths with earlier. Indeed it was, and with the addition of fellow hearse passenger and Canadian Bruce Palmer on bass and ex-Dillard Dewey Martin on drums, the cluster of ex-folkys determined, as the Byrds had just done, to become a rock & roll band.

Buffalo Springfield wasn't together long -- they were an active outfit for just over two years, between 1967 and 1968 --but every one of their three albums was noteworthy. Their debut, Buffalo Springfield, including their sole big hit (Stills' "For What It's Worth"), established them as the best folk-rock band in the land barring the Byrds, though Springfield was a bit more folk and country oriented. Again, their second album found the group expanding their folk-rock base into tough hard rock and psychedelic orchestration, resulting in their best record. The group was blessed with three idiosyncratic, talented songwriters in Stills, Young, and Furay (the last of whom didn't begin writing until the second LP) yet they also had strong and often conflicting egos, particularly Stills and Young. The group, who held almost infinite promise, rearranged their lineup several times, Young leaving the group for periods and Palmer fighting deportation, until disbanding in 1968. Their final album clearly shows the group fragmenting into solo directions.

Eventually, the inter-personal tensions and creative battles led to a perhaps inevitable split, starting with Young's departure for a solo career. He would later reunite with Stephen Stills in Crosby, Stills, & Nash, joining the trio once a decade for various projects. In addition to CSN, Stills released solo albums and worked with a nother band, Manassas. Initially, Jim Messina and Richie Furay stayed together, forming the country-rock group Poco, but Messina left after three albums to team up in a duo with Kenny Loggins. Furay himself left Poco and teamed with Chris Hillman and JD Souther in the Souther Hillman Furay Band before pursuing a solo career. Rumors of a Buffalo Springfield reunion circulated for years -- Young even hinted at it with the song "Buffalo Springfield Again" --and it finally happened in the fall of 2010. Young, Furay and Stills reunited as Buffalo Springfield for a pair of shows at Young's annual Bridge School Benefit in the fall of 2010. It wasn't a complete reunion, since Palmer had died in 2004 and Martin passed in 2009, but the three singers used bassist Rick Rosas and drummer Joe Vitale to fill in. The same configuration played six concerts in the spring of 2011, but reportedly did no studio work. ~ Richie Unterberger & Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

Love neil youngs music so much and played his albums so much that my roommates got sick of hearing it over and over! Even now still love his music

CSNY has to be one of the top groups in the 60's for the way they moved the younger generation at this time. It was either chill out or take to the streets in making ones voice heard. I don't think that we will see a band like this come along again, let alone the time this band appeared upon the U.S.
Retrospectiv e is my all time favorite album.
Great iconic tune. Still love Neil Young just wish he would keep his mouth shut when he is not singing.
Shadowman311 6 nothing has happened to smoking a joint with a friend. I think it is still being done. Hopefully :-)

Noteworthy that Dictator Cindy has a Catholic icon as her pic, Rock on CSNY ! They are the untimate anti-stablis h m e n t band.
NEIL makes me FEEL the music!!

I find it ironic that the government acts that people like Stills and Young wrote protest songs about are being committed again, but this time the politicians have a (D) in front of their names instead of an (R). And Stills and Young campaigned for the leftist fascists that are now in power in America. Good job hippies. Proud of yourselves ?
It is so good to relax with this music, it calms my mind after a long day
BRINGING. BACK REAL MUSIC THAT WE CAN LISTEN. TO AND UNDERSTAND. WHAT THE SONG IS ABOUT. KEEPING. IT REAL
This should be on Reservoir dogs
amye45
I watched Steven Stills on PBS this week - awesome.
mexlexus
Bring back old memories
For what it's worth
Vietnam 1968
What a band and some sweet music. Amazing song from the late 60's. Wicked banjo!
Neil Young actually wrote this song? Oh well, I guess even a snivelling bleating heart is capable of writing ONE song that has 'some' credibility.
I like the original much better
Love this band. But Neil Young? A cranky whining know-all who suffered from visions of grandeur! - Lynyrd Skynyd kicked his arse, 'big time.'
Written by Neil Young but sung by Richie Furay on this the original. Very good but I prefer the live acoustic version by Neil. Buffalo Springfield gone too soon.
The best anti-war song ever
tmccoop77
This band did more in three albums than others wish they could have accomplished in twenty.
deverett10
Always loved this music :)
I've always been a Neil Young fan. All of his music is awesome!!
AWESOME SONG!
stills young Richie Furay??? lots of talent in this band... Richie was far more of a country rock pioneer than anyone in the eagles not named timothy b Schmidt
wisefamily27

POWER TO THE PEOPLE!

MOONSHADOW
My very favorite band of the 60's, always talked to that alienated, angry, lover in me. Listening again reminds me that I have not changed all that much. 1970 - Filmore East - CSNY - f**king great.
Pure Music
Yo esas love this chit
It was also nice to see Richie at a Harvest Crusade with my mom early this millennium.
I guess that's why I always figured musicians were a-wipes. But grateful for their talent. Wish I had their skill, but then I'd be one too. sigh.
Rebuilt a VW engine listening to Buffalo Springfield and smoking dope. Damn thing took me from Ann Arbor to Austin. 1970.
for what its worth i think for what its worth is a good song.... get it haa ha (lamest joke ever)
