Buffalo Springfield (Box Set)
When Canadian transplants Neil Young and Bruce Palmer intersected with Stephen Stills, Richie Furay and Dewey Martin on the Sunset Strip 50 years ago, one of the truly great Los Angeles bands was born: Buffalo Springfield. Taking their name from a steamroller they'd seen parked on a street, the quintet emerged as folk-rock/country-rock leaders during their tumultuous 2-year existence. The 4-volume BUFFALO SPRINGFIELD might not include every note the group cut for Atlantic Records, but it's pretty close; along with such era-defining songs as “For What It's Worth,” “Mr. Soul,” “Rock & Roll Woman” and “Broken Arrow,” the set includes a bumper crop of previously unreleased demos, alternate versions and mixes. Compiled with input from Neil Young, it's the ultimate collection of the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers.
