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

Buffalo Springfield is timeless! Love them!
The 60s. Music had a story. These days you can make a 3 minute song with one sentence over & over

It's called Communism. Hello? This is America calling, are we reaching?.
Buffalo Springfield' s version of Kind Woman is the song for me!
I wish I could have this in my head constantly.
brunocpa
Yes its hard to believe we have so many old right wingers.
This song just relates the 60's feel. The 'Love not War' mantra of the times. What turbulent times the 60's were, but it's hard to believe that many of our congressmen/ w o m e n were those times.

Love temps. i wish it would rain.
Is this 1968 or 1969. Hey man I was just a teenager.
FYI. See your local ACLU.
skaterkross says hi! also. one day my uncle invited me on this taxi run to puaako, big island. I shook neil young's hand and said, i'm your biggest fan! and he gave me a signed copy of live at massyey hall
has as much power today as it did in 67
Great band wish they would of made more records:(
rayvnieto - how could Buffalo Springfield be a Supergroup if none of them had every gained previous fame? They were a 'super' group, but they weren't a Supergroup. Blind Faith may have been the first ever Supergroup.
I heart Steven Stills!
rayvnieto
Buffalo Springfield, probably the first Super Group
I saw these guys play in Oakland in 2011. I know it wasn't the original lineup, but I got to see Neil, Steve, and Richie play and sing together, probably for the last time. I would have paid 3 times what the ticket cost, and they weren't cheap. There are reasons these guys are called rock gods. Thanks for the memories, guys!

My sister has a plastic buffalo with Stills, Palmer, other signatures from a concert they did in Decatur, Illinois... at a movie theater of all places. Luv the music of the 60's...
you will be kissed the nearest Friday by the love of life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life however if you don't post then u will die in two days. Now you started reading this so don't stop. Post this in six other songs and your lovers name will appear on the screen in large letters. It’s scary but it works.
I always think of the Muppets version with little animals hiding in the woods

They don't make music like this anymore. :/

I grew up during this time and remember this song very well. And, boy does this song resonate with what has been and is happening now. The people who believed in the message of this song back then are now in charge and this song is more relevant to what is going on now. Just think about the Bundy Ranch fiasco and overlay the lyrics. This song is more appropriate now and it's an indictment of all the fakes of the 60's who are now the perpetrators .

His song "For What It's Worth" is such a great example of life back in the 1960s. Great song!
My jam from back in the day! Fight the power people!
