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

williamsaum9 0 0 0 you are correct. The political spectrum is not a straight line but a circle. The Democrats have moved towards fascism which is normally attributed to the right wingers. Except now the musicians are in bed with them instead of protesting them

This all applies today. Then it was referring to the KENT STATE massacres and the Viet Nam war. Now we have political correctness( i . e . anti - free speech),soci a l justice(anti - f r e e thought). These atrocities committed against free thinking American citizens were committed by the Democratic armies. Do not forget the Branch Davidians also assassinated by the Leftist Beast. Sorry for getting political, but that's what this music was/is all about. There's something happening here.

Sternga5, i agree with you about the depressing ending of Layla, but I love the banjo ending on Bluebird. It's beautiful and my favorite part of the song and seems to fit well with the theme of the song. I don't like the long, unedited jam version of Bluebird before the banjo section that is on some versions though.

Love this group.

'Bluebird'-- a great Buffalo Springfield song ruined by the ambling banjo of the ending; Stephen Stills had absolutely no idea how to end it. It reminds me of the depressing 4 minute anticlimax of Layla; the composers must have had some idea in mind when they did it, but it just doesn't work.
