Buffalo Springfield was a folk rock group that served as a springboard for the careers of Neil Young, Stephen Stills, Richie Furay and Jim Messina, two of whom played in rock group Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young later in their career. Buffalo Springfield is best known for the song "For What It's Worth". After the band's formation in April 1966, a series of disruptions, including infighting and the pressure of working in the music industry, resulted in constant changes in the group's lineup and ultimately culminated in the group's disbanding after roughly 25 months. Buffalo Springfield released a total of three albums but left many demo recordings, studio outtakes and live recordings, as well as a reputation for excellent personnel and high band dysfunction. Despite the band's short tenure and relatively limited output it was one of the most influential bands of the 1960s, with virtually all members going on to successful careers and with two (Stills and Young) reaching the top of rock stardom. Last Time Around is the third and final album by Buffalo Springfield, released in 1968. The members included Neil Young, Stephen Stills, and Richie Furay. The record was released to fulfill contractual commitments. The group had already disbanded; nowhere do all members appear together on any track, and even the cover photo of the group is a montage.

Stray are a British band formed in 1966. Vocalist Steve Gadd, guitarist Del Bromham, bass player Gary Giles and drummer Steve Crutchley formed the band whilst all were attending the Christopher Wren School in London. Richard "Ritchie" Cole replaced Crutchley in 1968. They signed to Transatlantic Records in January 1970. The group's brand of melodic, hook-laden hard rock proved to be a popular draw on the local club scene during the early 1970s. However the band did not have commercial success with its record releases. At one stage Charlie Kray, was their manager. Gadd left the band in 1975 due to artistic differences and was replaced on vocals by Pete Dyer. The original Stray finally dissolved in 1977, although Bromham later continued to play in various resurrected versions of the project well into the 2000s. From late 2006 until early 2007, the band's back catalog of eight studio albums issued originally during the 1970s were re-released by the UK-based Sanctuary Records in compact disc format. This is the debut album from 1970.

Mungo Jerry is an English rock group whose greatest success was in the early 1970s, though they have continued throughout the years with an ever-changing line-up, always fronted by Ray Dorset. They are remembered above all for their hit "In the Summertime". It remains their most successful and most instantly recognisable song. Their name was inspired by the poem Mungojerrie and Rumpelteazer, from T. S. Eliot's Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats. According to Joseph Murrell's The Book of Golden Discs (1978), 'Mungomania' was possibly the most startling and unpredicted pop phenomenon to hit Britain since The Beatles. Impala Saga was Mungo Jerry's first LP for Polydor, released in early 1976. The title track was a screaming, high-energy roots rock song, with a loud lead guitar, growling vocals, and full-on drumming in the best metal/arena rock manner. It showed off a hard rock side to this band that wasn't necessarily its best, although that song certainly shook up fans who associated the group exclusively with good-time music. Elsewhere, however, Impala Saga was a direct carryover from the group's Pye Records years, opening with the delightful acoustic rocker "Hello Nadine," which they'd first recorded (but never released) for their earlier label. The record never sold in large numbers and is considered a rarity in England. (Wiki-AMG)

Replacements (sometimes referred to colloquially as "The Mats") were an American rock band formed in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1979. The band was composed of guitarist and vocalist Paul Westerberg, guitarist Bob Stinson, bassist Tommy Stinson, and drummer Chris Mars for most of their career. Following several critically acclaimed albums, including Let It Be and Tim, Bob Stinson was fired in 1986 and the band experienced several line-up changes; Slim Dunlap joined as lead guitarist and Steve Foley replaced Chris Mars in 1990. Towards the end of the band's career, Westerberg exerted more control over their creative output. The group disbanded in 1991, with the members ultimately pursuing various projects.

The Goo Goo Dolls are an American rock band formed in 1986 in Buffalo, New York by lead vocalist and guitarist John Rzeznik and bass guitarist and lead vocalist Robby Takac. Since the end of 1994, Mike Malinin has held the lead position of the band's drummer, a position previously held by George Tutuska. Some of their most popular songs include "Iris" and "Slide" from 1998's Dizzy Up The Girl, which produced five top-10 singles, and "Here Is Gone" and "Big Machine" from 2002's Gutterflower. Overall, the Goo Goo Dolls have 17 top-10 singles and have sold nearly 9 million albums in the United States alone. Superstar Car Wash is an album by the Goo Goo Dolls, released in February, 1993 on Warner Bros. Johnny Rzeznik wrote the song "We Are the Normal" with his idol, The Replacements' singer Paul Westerberg. The two corresponded by mail but never sat in a studio together. The song "Fallin' Down" was featured in the 1993 Pauly Shore movie Son In Law. Also, the song "So Far Away" was originally written and recorded with the title "Dancing In Your Blood"; the song had the same basic structure, but different lyrics, more minimal instrumentation, and a slightly different melody. Superstar Car Wash, or simply "SSCW", marks the end of the Takac, grungier era, and the beginning of the Rzeznik, more polished era.

R.E.M. is an American rock band formed in Athens, Georgia, in 1980 by Michael Stipe (lead vocals), Peter Buck (guitar), Mike Mills (bass guitar), and Bill Berry (drums and percussion). R.E.M. was one of the first popular alternative rock bands, and gained early attention due to Buck's ringing, arpeggiated guitar style and Stipe's unclear vocals. Eponymous is the first compilation album album by R.E.M., released in 1988. It was their last authorized release on I.R.S. Records, to whom they had been contracted since 1982, having just signed with Warner Bros. Records. The title is a pun on the convention in the recording industry to refer to a band's self-titled album as their "Eponymous Album". Eponymous is notable for its inclusion of several rare or alternate versions of known tracks. Spanning from the Chronic Town EP to the previous year's breakthrough hit album Document, Eponymous provides a fair overview of R.E.M.'s early work. 01 - Radio Free Europe (Original Hi-Tone Single) 02 - Gardening At Night (Different Vocal Mix) 03 - Talk About The Passion 04 - So. Central Rain 05 - (Don't Go Back To) Rockville 06 - Can't Get There From Here 07 - Driver 8 08 - Romance 09 - Fall On Me 10 - The One I Love 11 - Finest Worksong (Mutual Drum Horn Mix) 12 - It's The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine) LINK
Queen are a British rock band formed in London in 1971, originally consisting of Freddie Mercury, (lead vocals, piano), Brian May (lead guitar, vocals), John Deacon (bass guitar), and Roger Taylor (drums, vocals). Queen's initial works were chiefly glam rock, heavy metal and progressive rock orientated; however, with time, the band has incorporated diverse and innovative styles in their music, exploring the likes of vaudeville, electronic music and funk. The band digressed from using progressive themes in their music in the mid-1970s, with more conventional and radio-friendly works bringing them greater success. Throughout the 1970s, Queen disclosed the absence of synthesisers on their albums, yet their style continued to evolve. They eventually started using synthesisers in the 1980s, reflecting their experimental approach to music. This compilation album was released in 2007 in Brazil.
