Release info:

Buffalo Springfield's brief lifespan (essentially 1966-1968) was rich with promise but fraught with creative tensions. This friction ultimately fractured the band's core foundation of Stephen Stills and Neil Young. However, those same tensions--along with the formidable talents of Richie Furay and Jim Messina (replacing original bass player Bruce Palmer but assuming a broader production role)--created some truly enduring music.

;With only three albums from which to draw, RETROSPECTIVE includes the entirety of the band's hits and many well-known album tracks. Looking back, Buffalo Springfield can be seen as the wellspring for much of what happened inpopular music in the half-dozen years after the band's demise. From the country rock of Poco (which begat the Eagles) to Crosby, Stills & Nash--not to mention every turn in the ever-twisting road of Neil Young's career--it can all be traced right back to these tracks.
