If you do not own any of the Buffalo Springfield records already, this would be a good buy. For Neil Young fans it's great because there's a few tracks on here which you cannot find elsewhere. It is dissapointing not to find there alternative version of 'Bluebird' on here. Richie Furay's 'In the Hour of Not Quite Rain' is not on here either, but it's probably one of the Springfield's worst songs anyway. The box-set is compiled by Neil Young himself, therefore it includes alot of the same songs, but different versions- Neil Young is a firm believer in documenting everything even if it is repetitious or poor. There isn't much from the 'Last Time Around' LP, probably because Young wasn't recording with the band by this point and the songs weren't of the band's previous quality anyway. However, the alternative versions of Young's 'Clancy' and 'Round & Round' are fantastic.
I think the box-set artwork is nice. It has the famous Buffalo Springfiled steam-roller sign on the front and the booklet is quite thick, offering a quality that suits the era in which the music was made.
All in all a good buy if your a Neil Young or Buffalo Springfield fan, but it is a bit of a let down at times. A luxury not a necessity.
