Product Description

Product Description

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

Buffalo Springfield was a great classic rock act, but sadly, they never really got the credit they deserved. This was strange, because the band contained some future rock stars, including Stephen Stills, Jim Messina and Neil Young. The band's folk/country rock stylings were excellent, but their popularity paled in comparison to the Byrds and Bob Dylan, the mastermind folk rockers of the day. What a shame. Just because these guys were less popular doesn't mean they were less interesting. How does the Buffalo Springfield Box Set measure up? Read on and find out.
-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.

Format: Audio CD
Whenever I pay 50+ bucks for an exhaustive box set, I feel obligated to look at the purchase with a far more discerning critical eye than standard 14 dollar CD purchase. It's hard to be forgiving when the retail price is so high. That being said, this 4 CD collection will be the best sounding Buffalo Springfield you will ever hear. Neil Young was the right person to supervise the remastering of this project and he has done a great service to fans who have patiently waited for years the remastering to be completed. Perfectionism may be a pain in the posterior, but at the end of the day, you have Neil Young to thank for the cleaning the collection of Springfield's master tapes. The master tapes were probably in pretty bad condition after 35 years on someone's shelf and remastering them was time consuming, labor intensive process.
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.

The music on this disc rates five stars. The sound on Disc Four is breathtaking, and the demos are pure gold, especially for those interested in the evolution of a songwriter (Neil Young's "Down Down Down" demo, for example, contains elements of two future masterpieces, "Broken Arrow" and "Country Girl"). My complaint is the usual one voiced by those who review this monumental set--WHERE THE BLOODY HELL ARE THE LIVE TRACKS??? They have to be out there somewhere--it's hard to believe that there are no live recordings in existence of a band whose live performances are legendary for their passion and ferocity. Maybe, as I've heard (hopefully) expressed elswehere, they are being held back for another compilation. I understand the bootlegs STAMPEDE and SELL OUT offer amazing live performances with poor sound. Can't all the recording industry's modern technology clean up those tapes enough to satisfy the artists and let all of us here just how amazing this band was on stage? C'mon, guys, give us a break.

I could compare this set to a set like the Beatles I will. The anthology is what this set should music, long jams, interview interludes from key players and what about that unreleased Stampede album that I hear about? This was a lost opportunity really but that's not to say there aren't worthy things on it. The set has tons of demos, which I always like to hear and I actually appreciate the mono version of the first Springfield album on disk 4 after reading about the mix Neil and Stills made in Neil Young's "Shakey" Biography...It is really good and was put there as a means to contrast between the tinny version.
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...
