RhinoA new box set featuring remastered versions of Buffalo Springfield‘s three studio albums will be released on June 29 in honor of the 50th anniversary of the influential folk-rock band’s final concert.

What’s That Sound? The Complete Albums Collection will be available as a five-CD set featuring new stereo mixes of the group’s 1966 self-titled debut, 1967’s Buffalo Springfield Again and 1968’s Last Time Around, plus mono mixes of the first two records. The new mixes were created using the original analog master tapes, and were overseen by founding band member Neil Young.

The collection will also be issued as a limited-edition, five-LP 180-gram vinyl package, marking the first time that any Buffalo Springfield album will be available on heavyweight vinyl. Only 5,000 copies of the set will be produced.

In addition, the box set will be released as a digital download and via streaming services. High-resolution downloads and streaming will be available through Neil’s NeilYoungArchives.com website.

In advance of the release of What’s That Sound?, a remastered version of Buffalo Springfield’s classic Stephen Stills-penned protest anthem “For What It’s Worth” is available now for purchase as a digital single for streaming.

Among the other classics that Stills contributed to the band during its brief two-year existence were “Bluebird,” “Rock and Roll Woman” and “Hung Upside Down.” The songs Young wrote for the group included “Mr. Soul,” “Expecting to Fly” and “I Am a Child.”

In addition to Young and Stills, Buffalo Springfield’s lineup included future Poco frontman Richie Furay, bassist Bruce Palmer and drummer Dewey Martin.

Future Poco and Loggins & Messina member Jim Messina produced Last Time Around, and also played bass on two tracks.
