I began working with Buffalo Springfield around 1966 as a recording engineer on the second album entitled "Buffalo Springfield Again." In 1967, I started on the third album entitled "Last Time Around" as an engineer. During the course of the production, I was asked by Ahmet Ertegun (Atlantic Records) and the group to produce the band. Shortly thereafter, I replaced Bruce Palmer, the bass player. I toured and recorded with the band up until completion and release of the record.
