iTunes Editors’ Notes

Buffalo Springfield were done by the release of this 1968 album (their third), yet it includes some their best songs. With its irresistible brass hooks, swollen strings, sweet guitar jangles, and Richie Furay’s lilting vocals, Neil Young’s “On the Way Home” simply stuns. As does Young and Furay’s jazz-snared left turn “It’s So Hard to Wait.” It’s impossible here to overlook Furay, who was hitting his stride as a singer/songwriter. Listen to his stellar piano and pedal steel-driven “Kind Woman” or the Mamas & Papas–like pop of “Merry-Go-Round.” Stephen Stills contributes winners too, including the haunter “Pretty Girl Why” and the Latin-hued rocker “Uno Mondo.” Jim Messina’s Harry Nilsson–like “Carefree Country Day” adds some jazz chords and stand-up bass to the proceedings, while Young’s self-referencing and spare “I Am a Child” presages his On the Beach album. Interestingly, a Los Angeles radio contest winner ("Buffalo Springfield will set your poem to music!") penned the figurative lyrics to “The Hour of Not Quite Rain,” which Furay put to a gently stirring melody and melancholic orchestral backdrop.

Customer Reviews

Thank You For Listening...

And getting the whole album for us to purchase. Recommended tracks are #1, 3, 7, 8, 9, 11, & 12. "Kind Woman" is one of the best songs written by Richie Furay.

Great band. Great album

Two L.A. bands from the '60s broke up too soon: Love and Buffalo Springfield. Both had so much talent and originality and yet the members just threw it all away. This album is a testament to Buffalo Springfield's talent which couldn't be suppressed, even in the wake of breaking apart. You don't hear dissension on this album. The drumming and bass playing are tight and groovy. The guitar parts are intricate and beautiful, as a musician, just inspiring to listen to. The song styles are diverse but belong together. Young, Stills, Furay and Messina each contribute great songs. I especially like Stills' songs: Pretty Girl Why, Four Days Gone, Special Care, Questions, and Uno Mundo. I've read that this album was eventually finished by Furay and Messina after the group had broken up. I'm glad they did. I think it's Buffalo Springfield's best work.

Thank you for putting this album on iTunes

I've been searching for a long time to find the rest of the songs from Last Time Around on iTunes. Originally there was only I think one song listed for the album and a lot of negative reviews because of it. Thanks for listening to the feedback.

Biography

Formed: 1966 in Los Angeles, CA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '60s, '10s

Apart from the Byrds, no other American band had as great an impact on folk-rock and country-rock — really, the entire Californian rock sound — than Buffalo Springfield. The group's formation is the stuff of legend: driving on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, Stephen Stills and Richie Furay spotted a hearse that Stills was sure belonged to Neil Young, a Canadian he had crossed paths with earlier. Indeed it was, and with the addition of fellow hearse passenger and Canadian...
