Richie Furay - Part 1

Richie Furay - Part 1 - The Buffalo Springfield Days

The lyrics from the Buffalo Springfield's 1967 hit For What It's Worth have come to symbolize the turbulent decade of the 1960s. Employed in virtually every documentary, television special, and feature film (including Forrest Gump and Oliver Stone's Born On The Fourth Of July) chronicling that era in America, For What It's Worth has transcended the pop charts to become an anthem, a touchstone for an entire generation. In 1967, the Buffalo Springfield captured the restless, confrontational mood of that generation railing against the establishment and went on to be revered as one of rock music's most influential groups. The Rolling Stone Encyclopedia of Rock 'N' Roll cites the band among a handful of seminal rock pioneers. A glance at rock's greatest movers and shakers of the 1970 and 80s reveals just how significant the Buffalo Springfield legacy has been: Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young, Poco, Loggins and Messina, Souther, Hillman Furay, Neil Young & Crazy Horse. All arose from the ashes of the Springfield.

Buffalo Springfield - Buffalo Springfield (1966) - extended
First release (mono), second release (stereo) with 1 different track and different order. Both included here.
Quality: 320 kb/s

Buffalo Springfield - Again (1967)
This album has a little bit of everything. It's a real transition album. There are hints of 60's era folk, country rock, rock and even a little bluegrass.
Quality: 320 kb/s

Buffalo Springfield - Last Time Around (1968)
Furay makes four contributions, the best of which is the melodic love ballad 'Kind Woman'. It's really a Poco tune, recorded without Stills or Young in the studio. While not groundbreaking, or even able to stand on their own, Furay's additions save the album from Palmer and Young's abandonment.
Quality: 320 kb/s
Buffalo Springfield - Buffalo Springfield Box Set (2001)
Contains Demos, Outtakes, Unreleased material

P.S. Is it just me or is the covers link not working. I get the message that HTTP 404 Not Found. It's a long link so maybe when I copy it part of it has been cut off by the comment section and I am not getting it all. Anyone else have this problem. Maybe it's just massmirror tonight. I will have to try again later. Not a big deal it's the music I am really interested in. Thanks again.

Have tested the links to the box set and images.

The covers are still available @megaupload and @badomgo.
The music is still available, too.
If you have still problems, please drop me a note.

Atlantic did a repackaging of the Springfield material, a two disc vinyl set (which will tell you how long ago it came out) that never made it to cd. The one standout on this two disc set was an extended version of "Bluebird." Any chance of you having it?
