All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
The internal dissension that was already eating away at Buffalo Springfield's dynamic on their second album came home to roost on their third and final effort, Last Time Around. This was in some sense a Buffalo Springfield album in name but not in spirit, as the songwriters sometimes did not even play on cuts written by other members of the band. Neil Young's relatively slight contribution was a particularly tough blow. He wrote only two of the songs though he did help Richie Furay write "It's So Hard to Wait", both of which were outstanding: the plaintive "I Am a Child" and the bittersweet "On the Way Home" sung by Furay, not Young, on the record.

The rest of the ride was bumpier: Stephen Stills' material in particular was not as strong as it had been on the first two LPs, though the lovely Latin-flavored "Pretty Girl Why," with its gorgeous guitar work, is one of the group's best songs. Furay was developing into a quality songwriter with the orchestrated "The Hour of Not Quite Rain" and his best Springfield contribution, the beautiful ballad "Kind Woman," which became one of the first country-rock standards. But it was a case of not enough, too late, not only for Furay, but for the group as a whole.

    Last Time Around, Buffalo Springfield

    It all started with a chance meeting, an old roller, hardwork and Buffalo Springfield (1966) was released, then Buffalo Springfield Again (1967) and finally came Last Time Around (1968). Sadly, it was all over. By this time they were no longer playing as a band, coming in only to add thier individual parts, if that. Stephen Stills and Neil Young would later look at this work as a step child. Richie Furay and Jim Messina tried their best to fulfill a contract and come up with a good album. They succeeded! This is my favorite B.S. recording. Later when Retrospective (Best of -1969)came out, it became their best seller and would be another favorite of mine, as was the double album with all thier names and the boxed set (2001). Unfortunately, Last Time Around was not included in the Boxed set. I made sure to purchase the Boxed set and this CD. I highly recommend this and the book The Story Of the Buffalo Springfield - For What It's Worth (also available here).
