Buffalo Neil

Recent references to Ohio a song recorded by Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young and to Crazy Horse had me thinking about Neil Young in an earlier incarnation as a member of Buffalo Springfield.
Here are a couple of his compositions from 1967's Buffalo Springfield Again (the second of their three albums) where he is joined by Stephen Stills, Richie Furay, Bruce Palmer and Dewey Martin.
That line up sounds like a super group but that was to come later.

Mr Soul was one which periodically  has re-appeared during Shakey's long and illustrious career as indeed has On the Way Home.

Buffalo Springfield - Mr Soul

Buffalo Springfield - On The Way Home


  1. Terrific lyrics on "Mr Soul". I think a lot of what Buffalo Springfield did was overshadowed by Stephen Stills' "For What It's Worth", but for me, a track like "Mr Soul" showed how rock lyrics were changed beyond recognition in the late 1960's.

    Although written by Neil, " On the Way Home" sounds more like a Richie Furay song, probably because he takes the lead vocal on it, but also because it sounds a lot like his contributions to Buffalo Springfield's 2nd and 3rd albums and the songs he did later with Poco.

  2. Mr Soul is totes amazeballs.
