Buffalo Springfield is a compilation album released on Atco Records in 1973. It is the fifth album by rock band Buffalo Springfield, and their second compilation. It was assembled by the label well after the band had broken up at a time when Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young were both quite popular and had not released any new material as a group for over two years, with their 1974 reunion tour eight months away. It features a nine-minute extended version of the song "Bluebird" by Stephen Stills (consisting of a live jam appended to the studio version), only available elsewhere on the Warner Special Products LP compilation "Heavy Metal – 24 Electrifying Performances" (Volume 2 in the "Superstars of the 70's" series), released in 1974. It has never been issued on compact disc in North America and is currently out of print.
