1 in stock


Offered for sale is a rare stereo copy of Buffalo Springfield’s 1966 self-titled debut LP, including the withdrawn song, “Baby, Don’t Scold Me,” but without the hit, “For What It’s Worth.”

About this copy: The copy offered for sale is an original 1966 stereo pressing, SD 33-200, including “Baby, Don’t Scold Me” and omitting “For What It’s Worth.”

The track lineup on this version of the LP also differs from the later version.

The cover is VG, with slight ring wear and a bent corner.

The disc is VG++, with a few light scuffs.  It’s clearly been well cared for and plays really well.

A nice copy of an iconic album and one that’s quite hard to find in stereo.

Background: Buffalo Springfield is widely regarded as one of the more influential groups of the 1960s, but when their first LP was released in December of 1966, the album, catalog number 33-200,  just sat on store shelves, gathering dust.

This was largely due to the lack of a hit single to drive sales of the album.  The first single, “Nowadays Clancy Can’t Even Sing,” stalled at #110 on the charts.

In January, 1967, the band released the song “For What It’s Worth” and the song reached #7 on the Billboard charts.  Atco Records decided to add “For What It’s Worth” to the album, but in the process, they removed the song “Baby, Don’t Scold Me” and rearranged the order of the songs on the album.

New pressings, released in March 1967, were assigned a new catalog number, 33-200A.  Sales of the album improved, and the album eventually peaked at #80 on the album charts.

Original pressings of the album containing “Baby, Don’t Scold Me” are quite rare, as they were only available for about three months before being replaced with the later version of the album.  In 40 years of selling records, we’ve only had two copies of the first version of the album, including this one.

Allmusic.com gave Buffalo Springfield a 4 star review:

The band themselves were displeased with this record, feeling that the production did not capture their on-stage energy and excitement. Yet to most ears, this debut sounds pretty great, featuring some of their most melodic and accomplished songwriting and harmonies, delivered with a hard-rocking punch…. The entire album bursts with thrilling guitar and vocal interplay, with a bright exuberance that would tone down considerably by their second record.
