Buffalo Springfield

Buffalo Springfield was a short-lived folk and country rock band who released three influential albums in 1967 and 1968.

Their first album[?], which was self-titled, included their only hit song, "For What It's Worth". Their second album, Buffalo Springfield Again, moved the group's sound in a hard rock and psychedelic direction, as well as showcasing the band member's three songwriters, Stephen Stills, Neil Young and Richie Furay. Personnel problems meant the group's line up was unstable, leading to the group's disintegration in 1968 after the release of Last Time Around[?]. Neil Young was the first to leave, eventually joining Crosby, Stills & Nash with former bandmate Stephen Stills; the group became known as Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. Stills released several solo albums, and in between CSN&Y formed a band called Manassas[?]. Messina and Furay formed Poco[?] with Rusty Young[?] who played on Last Time Around[?], drummer George Grantham[?] and bassist-vocalist Randy Meissner[?] (later to join the Eagles), but then Messina left to form a duo with Kenny Loggins[?] while Furay later joined the Souther Hillman Furay Band[?] with ex-Byrds and Flying Burrito Brothers Chris Hillman[?] (who also played with Stills in Manassass and J.D. Souther[?], then pursuing a solo career.
