Buffalo Springfield Reunite For Bridge School Benefit

Their harmonies are as wonderful as ever, even though they haven't been on stage together since 1968. The surviving members of the Buffalo Springfield played a reunion set in Mountain View, California, as part of a benefit for the Bridge School, established by Neil Young and his wife Pegi to educate children with cerebral palsy and other conditions. Above, left to right, Stephen Stills, Richie Furay and Young play "I Am a Child," which Young dedicated to the kids in the audience. After you listen to it, enjoy one more Springfield classic, "Nowadays Clancy Can't Even Sing":

I generally shy away from these reunions - it's difficult to put lightning back into the bottle - but Stephen, Richie and Neil together again, not to mention the cause that united them...well, there are exceptions. Good job! I haven't played an Buffalo Springfield on SJI yet. Maybe Friday.

When they sound as good as this after all these years, I'd gladly attend.
