Buffalo Springfield is a career retrospective of the late 60s folk rock band of the same name, released in 2001. Band member Neil Young assembled the tracks in chronological order to show how the band evolved and disintegrated in the span of two years. Of the four CDs, the first three represent the actual box set while the fourth CD contains the band's first two albums, all but two tracks of which had already appeared in identical versions elsewhere on the first three CDs. It reached #194 on Billboard's Top 200 Album chart, and stayed on the chart for the single week. The set omits the stereo version of the Buffalo Springfield album, the mono version of Buffalo Springfield Again, the album version of "On The Way Home", "Pretty Girl Why", and "Four Days Gone" from Last Time Around, and the songs "Carefree Country Day" and "In The Hour Of Not Quite Rain" from Last Time Around. It also lacks the long version of "Bluebird", only ever issued on the band's self-titled 2-LP compilation, Buffalo Springfield, released in 1973.
