“Thank you, we’re Buffalo Springfield,” Neil Young announced early in the band’s June 1st show at the Fox Theater in Oakland, the opening date of the Springfield’s first tour since the spring of 1968. “We’re from the past,” Young added drily.

They were not – he could have added without fear of contradiction – stuck in it. For nearly two hours, in a performance comprised almost entirely of songs from nearly half a century ago, Buffalo Springfield’s surviving members and original vocal-songwriting front line – Young and singer-guitarists Stephen Stills and Richie Furay – played like a band genuinely reborn: thrilled to be on stage again, determined not to let their songs or legacy down. There was jubilant fraternity in the close-harmony singing, especially by Young and Furay in the soft vocal rain at the end of “On the Way Home” and their gleaming Morse-code flourishes behind Stills’ grainy tenor in “Rock and Roll Woman.”
