 When I was first playing my precious Atlantic label 45 of the song For What It’s Worth (What’s That Sound) little did I think that almost 45 years later I would have the chance to hank him, over morning tea….now the Warners label will be making their three splendid albums available once more. The third one tends to be overlooked but has plenty of cool songs. Here’s the info we have thus far. readers…

Before playing their final show on May 5th, 1968, Buffalo Springfield released three studio albums on ATCO during an intense, two-year creative burst. Those albums – ‘Buffalo Springfield’, ‘Buffalo Springfield Again’ and ‘Last Time Around’ – have been newly remastered from the original analogue tapes under the auspices of Neil Young for the new box set ‘What’s That Sound? The Complete Albums Collection’ which will be released on Friday 29th June 2018.

The set includes stereo mixes of all three albums, plus mono mixes for ‘Buffalo Springfield’ and ‘Buffalo Springfield Again’, and will be available as a five-CD set and will also be on digital download and streaming services. High resolution streaming and downloads will be available through www.neilyoungarchives.com.

On the same date, the albums will also be released – for the first time ever – on 180-gram vinyl as part of a limited-edition set of 5000 copies. The 5-LP box features the same mono and stereo mixes as the CD set, and will be presented in sleeves and gatefolds that faithfully recreate the original releases.

Stephen Stills, Neil Young, Richie Furay, Bruce Palmer and Dewey Martin played their first show together as Buffalo Springfield in 1966. The same year, the band recorded and released its self-titled debut, which included the iconic protest song, ‘For What It’s Worth’, featuring lyrics as poignant now as they were then, in addition to standouts like ‘Burned’, ‘Do I Have To Come Right Out And Say It’ and the band’s first single ‘Nowadays Clancy Can’t Even Sing’.

The group spent the first half of 1967 making ‘Buffalo Springfield Again’, which was the first album to feature songs written by Furay (‘A Child’s Claim To Fame’). Stills and Young both contributed some all-time classics with ‘Bluebird’ and ‘Rock And Roll Woman’ from Stills, and ‘Mr. Soul’ and ‘Expecting To Fly’ from Young.

When ‘Last Time Around’ came out in July 1968, the band members were in the midst of transitioning to new projects: Stills famously joined David Crosby and Graham Nash in CSN; Young went solo; and Furay started Poco with Jim Messina, who produced ‘Last Time Around’ and played bass on two of the songs. Highlights abound on the album with Young’s ‘I Am A Child’, Furay’s ‘Kind Woman’ and Stills’ ‘Uno Mundo’.
