Will Buffalo Springfield Roam Again?

Charles Bermant, Rolling Stone, 29 April 2000

NEIL YOUNG'S NEW album, Silver and Gold, features a plaintive ballad titled 'Buffalo Springfield Again', where he expresses nostalgia for the band that first put him on the map. Singing "I'd like to see those guys again and give it a shot / Maybe now we can show the world what we've got," he hints toward a reunion, which would neatly dovetail the recently completed Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young road show and give legs to the long-awaited Buffalo Springfield box set. Indeed, now that CSN&Y have re-lit their flame, it would seem to be the perfect time for Young and Springfield cohort Stephen Stills to dig a little deeper into the past.
