Buffalo Springfield was a Canadian-American rock band formed 1966 in Los Angeles, California, by Stephen Stills, Neil Young, Richie Furay, Bruce Palmer and Dewey Martin. The band combined elements of folk, country and psychedelic rock influences, and, along with The Byrds, were part of the early development of folk-rock. The band was only together for two years but they established a sound that was to dominate much of 70s-80s American music, by bands such as Crosby, Still, Nash & Young and The Eagles. Their self-titled debut album was released in 1966 and contained the single "For What It's Worth" which became a gold disc, selling over a million copies. The band's second album Buffalo Springfield Again is generally regarded as their master-work, showcasing the excellent songwriting of Young and Stills. They pulled together one final album Last Time Around, from tracks that didn't make in onto the earlier albums, before going their seperate ways in May '68. The compilation Retrospective: The Best of Buffalo Springfield is an excellent overview of their work.
