With bowl haircuts, tailored suits, snappy pop songs and tight harmonies, Buffalo Springfield were an obvious reaction to the Beatles and the rest of the British Invasion. But the band's 1966 debut also drops hints of California's future: the jazzy haze permeating "Nowadays Clancy Can't Even Sing," the country bop propelling "Go And Say Goodbye," and the faint Latin swing underpinning "Hot Dusty Roads." And of course there's the uber-mature "For What It's Worth," a stone cold folk rock classic.
