Buffalo Springfield – Rock and Roll Woman
Written by megarock on October 30, 2018
Buffalo Springfield released their 2nd LP "Buffalo Springfield Again" on Oct. 30, 1967.
The recording of the album has been described by some as being tense and protracted, because Neil Young was often absent and the bass guitarist, Bruce Palmer, spent much of the sessions detained on drug charges. A number of Los Angeles session players also make appearances.
Among the notable tracks are Young's minor hit, "Mr. Soul". The album also includes two orchestral experiments Young produced with Jack Nitzsche, a Phil Spector associate: "Expecting to Fly" and "Broken Arrow". Both tracks were intended for solo release, and feature Young only, backed by session players. Richie Furay did overdubbed a harmony vocal on "Broken Arrow"
Stephen Stills wrote four songs on the record. One of them, "Rock and Roll Woman" was co-written by David Crosby, although he didn't receive credit. Crosby also sang background vocals on the song. "Rock and roll Woman" is one of the first collaboration between Stills and Crosby. If you didn't know better, you would think this song was by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. We like it so much that we had to post it here.
Happy 51st Birthday to "Buffalo Springfield Again"!!!
