It may be the weakest of the 3 Buffalo Springfield albums, but it's by no means a bad album. The band was falling apart at that point and the songs are more individual than group efforts. New bands were to emerge and Young and Stills to colaborate with better success. Individual ratings:
1. On the Way Home **** (Neil Young's song, but sung by R Furay)
2. It's So Hard To Wait** (Richie Furay / Neil Young)
3. Pretty Girl Why **** (Stephen Stills' Beatles moment, a beautiful song)
4. Four Days Gone** (Stephen Stills)
5. Carefree Country Day *** (Messina's contribution, title says it all)
6. Special Care*** (Stephen Stills)
7. The Hour Of Not Quite Rain *** (Richie Furay's most psychedelic moment)
8. Questions** (Stephen Stills)
9. I Am a Child ***** (Early promise of greatness for Neil Young)
10. Merry-go-round** (Richie Furay)
11. Uno Mundo**** (Stephen Stills, with surprising Latin overtones)
12. Kind Woman***** (Richard Furay's crowning moment with BS)

Last Time Around (1968.) Buffalo Springfield's third album.
Despite having released two excellent and wildly diverse rock and roll albums, Buffalo Springfield just never managed to achieve any major popularity. This was a shame, because they really were excellent musicians. Among their ranks were the widely talented Stephen Stills (who wrote most of the band's compositions) and the future rock legend Neil Young. For the band's third album, which would be their final one, they recruited new bass player Jim Messina (who would achieve great fame in the seventies playing alongside Kenny Loggins.) How does the band's final album, the appropriately-titled Last Time Around, measure up? Read on for my review.
This was Buffalo Springfield's third and final album. The band must have finally realized that their music, while good, could never be as influential as that of, say, the Byrds or Bob Dylan (the major folk-oriented rockers of the day.) It was a shame that they decided to call it quits, but before quitting, the band served up this album, and I'm glad they did. By far Buffalo Springfield's greatest strength was their musical diversity, and they serve up plenty of that on this album, drawing influences from a number of genres and artists of the day. There's really not a whole lot more that I can say about this album, but it's not quite as good as it's predecessor, Buffalo Springfield Again. However, in my mind, it DOES top the band's self-titled debut. It's doubtful that any fan of the band will be disappointed with it.
Like the other Buffalo Springfield releases (as of July 18, 2004), there is only one version of the album readily available on CD. This is a real shame, because it could use some remastering and bonus tracks, since so many of the band's excellent rarities are unavaiable outside of their restrictively expensive box set. If there are executives from the record company reading this, I urge you to reissue the band's catalogue and remaster it!
Last Time Around was, well, the last time around for Buffalo Springfield, but it certainly wasn't the last time around for the members of the band. Several spin-off bands were born from the downfall of Buffalo Springfield, including Crosby Stills Nash And Young, Poco, and Loggins And Messina. Many of the former members also released solo albums. Last Time Around stands as the last effort by this great classic rock band, so it's fortunate that its members would find successes elsewhere. If you're new to Buffalo Springfield, I would have to recommend either starting with the band's sophomore effort Buffalo Springfield Again, or the Retrospective hits compilation. This is an excellent album, no question, it's just not a very good starting point for new fans.

Historic songs from a group of musicians who went on to
form many other great bands

You can hear the basis of CSN&Y here

Neil Young is God as far as I am concerned! I am only just catching up on his really early stuff, which I now love!

This review title reflects the album - it may be a valid statement, but it's still pointless.

'I Am A Child' captures NY in his whimsy, and 'Pretty Girl Why' is a-full-to-bursting which injured teenboy pride, but the album itself fails to elevate the listener.

A really overrated band, I'm afraid. Stick to CSNY or simply NY in the 70s.
