Repackaging of this excellent 2001 four CD box. Buffalo Springfield was Neil Young, Steve Stills, Richie Furay, Bruce Palmer and Dewey Martin. This set takes the listener through the band's chronological journey - testimony that their prolific and esteemed output within two short years far outshone what some groups barely achieve in a lifetime. Featuring demos, alternates, outtakes and studio masters, this four disc compendium is a must-have for any fan of this seminal band, whose influence cannot be overestimated.
Buffalo Spring is a 4-disc box set that traces the short yet influential career of Buffalo Springfield. Fronted by two of the most mercurially talented musicians and composers of their generation--Stephen Stills and Neil Young--Buffalo Springfield's career lasted just 25 months from April 1966 to May 1968. Their legend has long been sealed by two classic albums, the eponymous debut and Buffalo Springfield Again. Both are here in their entirety on the final CD of this set, but the real revelation is spread over the other 3 discs, which feature a total of 36 previously unreleased tracks. The demos for Buffalo favourites and songs that were later recorded for post-Springfield albums are an astonishing testimony to the intense creativity and sheer brilliance that powered the band. The highlights are everywhere--Stills's beautiful "So You've Got a Lover Now", Richie Furay's exuberant "What A Day", Young's "Flying on the Ground Is Wrong". Fans have long known that despite their short career, Buffalo Springfield ranked alongside the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the Beach Boys as major 1960s players. Now everyone else does too. --Gavin Martin

-THIS BOX SET FEATURES A TON OF RARITIES BY THE BAND THAT NEVER MADE IT ONTO ALBUMS. If you're one of the few die-hard Buffalo Springfield fans out there who can't live without owning all of the band's compositions, this set is for you. There are tons of demos, alternative takes, and even tracks that never made it onto the band's albums.
-THE FIRST TWO ALBUMS ARE HERE, COMBINED ONTO A SINGLE DISC! It's great to finally have the first two albums combined together like such. After all, it's easier to haul around a single disc instead of two of them!
-THE SET IS A COMPLETE RIP-OFF! Sixty dollars for four discs worth of material? The entire studio discography that was commercially released could have fit on TWO DISCS, with plenty of room for rarities! A two-disc box would have been a much better value.
-THE SET IS REPETITIVE. Many of the songs are just alternative takes/versions, so there's a lot of redundancy in some places in the set.
-WHY ISN'T THE MATERIAL ARRANGED CHRONOLOGICALLY!? If you're one of those fans of the band who got used to the original arrangements of songs on the classic albums, this is bound to mess with your head.
-ABOVE ALL, WHY THE LACK OF LIVE MATERIAL!?Read more ›
Here's my complaint. The actual chronology may be correct but there is a confusing mix of demos, remixes, outakes and unreleased songs that destroy the continuity of the original three albums. "Buffalo Springfield", "Buffalo Springfield, Again" and "Last Time Around" are the holy grail of our youth and should not be tampered with by anyone, even Neil Young. The order of the songs on those albums are so firmly imprinted in my subconscious mind that each time I hear a song out of order, I break out in a cold sweat, begin screaming, "Revisionist history!!!", before the enevitable grand mal seizure strikes. We're talking about sacred ground here, Neil!!!
It would have been far better to present the first three Buffalo Springfied albums in separate jewel cases with the orginal order of songs and the original artwork, than parking a jumbled mess of demos on the same CDs as the final takes.Read more ›
Most of the songs aren't exactly a revelation as fans will know the songs anyway but what is a revelation at times is how much better the demo songs sound recorded as a band as opposed to bits and pieces as with the first Springfield album.
I'm holding out hope for a live album in the future although I think half the problem there is that few decent quality recordings exist. So yes, I'd recommend this but if you are a fan you will have bought this already probably...
