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 ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Buffalo Springfield 7 May 2003
By Rachel
Format:Audio CD
I really enjoyed it and I feel that it improves with every listen. I can only wonder at how much better these tracks would be in their live and un-abridged glory! As it is, this is an accessible album that, at the very least, provides a kind of overture of Neil Young's and Stephen Stills' early work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Before It All Fell To Pieces... 21 April 2010
By Og Oggilby VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Buffalo Springfield were a great band, and it is such a shame that they were so short-lived. A combination of egos, poor management and an inability to break out from their Los Angeles base curtailed a very promising career. Ironically enough, however, even though they never consistently cracked the upper echelons of commercial success, they rank alongside The Byrds and The Band as an abiding influence on contemporary Alternate Country music.

If you read the Buffalo Springfield biography by the writer John Einarson, he fairly squarely bases the band's break-up as a breakdown between Stephen Stills and Neil Young, with the other principal songwriter in the band, Richie Furay, as the piggy in the middle who tried to hold it all together. Young's indecision - he split and rejoined the band on a couple of occasions - one which resulted in the band having to pull out of an appearance on the huge Johnny Carson TV show - coupled with a combination of Young's disillusionment and solo yearnings - meant that the band were fatally flawed from quite early on. The fact that they produced three enduring, excellent albums - of which this is probably the best, and presented three great songwriters to the world is amazing in itself.

'Buffalo Springfield' is an at times utterly beguiling record that stands up as a pointer for the way ahead in Country Rock, more so than The Byrds 'Sweetheart Of The Rodeo', in some respects (to me, at least), and contains many fine gems such as the Stills protest item 'For What It's Worth', and Young's mesmerising 'Nowadays Clancy Can't Even Sing' and 'Flying On The Ground Is Wrong', and in 'Burned', showed that Young was not without a sense of what made a commercial record. The playing and vocal harmonising is excellent throughout, and at thirty-odd minutes, it never outstays its welcome. If you're a fan of the West Coast rock sound, then tune into this - it shows where it all (or much of it, anyway) came from.

By Ghostgrey51 TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Stephen Stills, Neil Young and the often overlooked but very talented Richie Furray...Oh my what could have been...

I purchased the UK vinyl version of this CD in 1968, and yes indeed it does pass the test of time. The blending of the various country, folk, blues and rock influences that this talented crew brought, produced an album of fresh, sharp songs whose lyrics are as relevant today as then. There was the anthem-to-be, `For What It's Worth', Country without the mawkish syrup as in `Do I Have To Come Right Out And Say It', and a sharp Stand-Up-And-Be-A-Man in `Go And Say Goodbye'. Also some hard drivin' blues influenced work in the likes of `Leave' `Burned' and `Pay The Price'.

In point of fact there was not one slack track. A good measure of its influence was that three tracks were covered by other bands within two years of its release.

Buffalo Springfield were nearly, not quite paladins of what Country, Folk and Rock could be crafted into during the late 1960s. With firmer guidance and stronger mentors to sit on some of the egos who knows where they could have gone? Still we should be grateful for that which was produced and recorded.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good debut 4 Aug 2002
By Callie
Format:Audio CD
I like the Sringfield's debut album,the only thing that spoils it is the poor production,but most of the songs being strong you tend to forget the tinny recording!Stills and Young share the songwriting and Richie Furay proves to be a confident lead vocalist.Young wasn't too confident about his singing,but on the tracks "Burned" and "Out of my mind" his vocals add a haunting quality to the music.Stephen Stills is in fine form and his song "For what it's worth" became an all time classic.The record company wanted Stills to change some of the lyrics,because they thought the song was too controversial,but Stills wouldn't change the words and the rest is history.
At that time in the 60's the Springfield were right up there with the Byrds,who had the songwriters and fine harmonies,but it was Buffalo Springfield who had the musical clout,with Stills and Young being excellent guitarists and Bruce Palmer a wizard on Bass.In concert they could cook better than Delia Smith !!!!

The sixties produced a vast multitude of classic debut albums and this comfortably falls within that category. It's not surprising when you think of the sheer talent in this band and it's such a shame that the glory was shortlived. However, what there was of the Buffalo Springfield recording legacy ranks alongside all the other great artists of the era. Although Neil Young went on to greater fame and solo success, this eponymous effort finds Stephen Stills in blistering form, showcasing his supreme ability as a songwriter. The compositions are outstanding, the singing is outstanding and the interplay and skill of the musicians is second to none. It's sheer magic. How anyone can fail to give this album five stars is, quite frankly, beyond me.

Discovered Buffalo Springfield in the late 60s, on Radio Caroline. Bought a compilaton in 1969, for 99p, after they had splitup. This is an excellent album, with so many talented band members.
