Buffalo Springfield: American Buffalo
Gene Santoro, The Nation, 9 August 2001
UNSTABLE CHEMISTRY can cause spectacular effects – that's one way to think of Buffalo Springfield. Another is to consider the band an American musical smorgasbord (though it had three Canadians in it), descended from the Whitmanian ideal to be vast and multitude-containing, and from the self-invented musical yawps of folks like Harry Partch.
