Rush Pays Tribute to Buffalo Springfield

Over on Blogcritics, a review of Rush's album Feedback featuring a Buffalo Springfield cover of "For What It's Worth" and Neil Young's "Mr Soul". Other covers include Eddie Cochran's "Summertime Blues" and Robert Johnson's "Crossroads".

On the cover of Young's song "Mr Soul":

"Done in a voice eerily reminiscent of Neil himself. The theme is the price of fame, and the desire of the artist not to lose his 'soul' in the pursuit of success, a theme that Rush themselves are quite familiar with."

More on "Mr. Soul" lyrics and analysis and The Buffalo Springfield story.
