Offered for sale is a rare purple vinyl pressing of Springfield Roots by Buffalo Springfield, issued on the Trademark of Quality label.

Note: This LP also includes tracks by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and Poco.

About this copy: This copy of Springfield Roots is a 1972 pressing on the Trademark of Quality label.

The cover is likely not original; it is a plain white cover in VG+ condition.  It has a bit of general wear, but no writing or splits.

The insert is a reproduction.

The purple vinyl disc has the later “Smoking Pig” label and is a rare variation on this title and it is translucent with slight marbling.   The disc is M- on side one and VG+ on side two, as that side has a couple of light scratches that should be inaudible.

A nice copy of a rare Buffalo Springfield/CSNY/Poco collectible.

Background: Springfield Roots was originally released in 1970 on the 5D label.  It was reissued on the Trademark of Quality label in 1972.

While billed as a Buffalo Springfield album, the LP actually only has two Buffalo Springfield tracks, along with tracks by Poco and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.

  • Bluebird – Buffalo Springfield (unreleased mono mix with Neil Young guitar overdubs)
  • Baby Don’t Scold Me (stereo mix)
