Buffalo Springfield : Buffalo Springfield 1966



Buffalo Springfield was an North-American rock group that served as a springboard for the careers of Neil Young, Stephen Stills, Richie Furay and Jim Messina .
The band's formation was in April 1966 and they released a total of three albums .



The first Buffalo Springfield single, “Nowadays Clancy Can’t Even Sing”, was released in August but made little impact outside of Los Angeles, where it reached the Top 25.
The album, eponymously titled Buffalo Springfield, was originally released by Atlantic’s subsidiary Atco in mono and in stereo in December 1966.



In November 1966 Stills composed his landmark song, "For What It's Worth", after witnessing police actions against the crowds of young people who had gathered on the Sunset Strip to protest the closing of a nightclub called Pandora's Box. The song was performed on Halloween night at the Whisky a Go Go, recorded within the next few days, and on the air in Los Angeles on radio station KHJ soon after. By March 1967 it was a Top Ten hit.

In April 1968, after yet another drug bust involving Young, Furay, Messina and Eric Clapton, the group decided to break up.

FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH LYRICS

There's something happening here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware

(I think it's time we)
Stop, children, what's that sound ?
Everybody look - what's going down ?

There's battle lines being drawn
Nobody's right if everybody's wrong
Young people speaking their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind

(It's time we)
Stop, hey, what's that sound ?
Everybody look - what's going down ?

What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying," hooray for our side "

(It's time we)
Stop, hey, what's that sound ?
Everybody look - what's going down ?

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
You step out of line, the man come and take you away

(We better)
Stop, hey, what's that sound ?
Everybody look what's going down ?
(We better)
Stop, hey, what's that sound ?
Everybody look what's going down ?
(We better)
Stop, now, what's that sound ?
Everybody look what's going down ?
(We better)
Stop, children, what's that sound ?
Everybody look what's going down ?
