Sunday Morning Music: Buffalo Springfield

I am reading Shakey, a biography of Neil Young written by Jimmy McDonough. If you are not a rabid Neil Young fan you might not be interested but if you are…

In the context of “Rock n Roll saved my young rebel soul” Neil Young was an anchor in the maelstrom of my teenage years. His elliptical meaningful/meaningless lyrics mesmerized and soothed me for reasons unknown. And boy Crazy Horse could make some noise.

I am super psyched about seeing Neil Young and Crazy Horse a couple of times next week in Brooklyn and Connecticut because here I am hip deep in middle age and rock n roll is still saving my soul.

This video is from a TV appearance by Buffalo Springfield, Young’s first band with Stephen Stills and Richie Furay. It combines two of the bands songs, Stills’ For What It’s Worth, and Young’s’ Mr. Soul.

Hip to it: it's unnerving.
