Buffalo Springfield - California, USA 1967

This is Buffalo Springfield recorded live at The Teen And Twenty Club, Huntington Beach, CA, USA back on August 11th, 1967.

 A 'BigO' reader was most likely responsible for this version of the recording and commented "I have a recently unearthed recording of Buffalo Springfield at The Teen And Twenty Club in Huntington Beach, CA 1967. A friend of mine went to this show with a friend of his (they were both 16 years old at the time). They helped the roadie, and his friend brought an open-reel recorder and asked the band if he could tape it". The recorded quality suggests the reel to reel recorder was plugged into the sound mixer and is therefore of a professional standard.

Some of these songs were played on KPFK Radio in Los Angeles (1973 -74) by the taper, and the earliest 'partial' bootleg of this concert in circulation was sourced from that. To our knowledge this full recording has only been in circulation since 2010.

Buffalo Springfield went through some line up changes in 1967 and for short term member Doug Hastings, the Huntington show was sadly his last as Neil Young rejoined the group and Doug was unceremoniously dropped. During 1967 the band moved back and forth between recording sessions and live appearances on both coasts. A number of different bassists were used, such as Mike Barnes and Jim Fielder of the Mothers of Invention. In one instance, a live performance on the television show Hollywood Palace Buffalo Springfield's non-bass-playing road manager held a bass with his back to the camera while the band mimed to a prerecorded track.

This looks really interesting as they are not many good quality boots from Buffalo Springfield around.

I'll definitely have a close listen to this one.

Thank you for sharing,
and all the best for 2012
