Canadian-American band Buffalo Springfield will be commemorating the 50th anniversary of its final show with a box set featuring newly remastered studio albums.

Buffalo Springfield was born in Los Angeles in 1966, when Canadian musicians Neil Young and Bruce Palmer met up with Stephen Stills, Richie Furay and Dewey Martin. During their tumultuous two years together as a band, they released three studio albums and put out the iconic protest song “For What It’s Worth.”

The band, since inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, played its final show on May 5, 1968.

For the box set commemorating 50 years since that show, Neil Young oversaw the remastering of the group’s three albums: “Buffalo Springfield” (1966), “Buffalo Springfield Again” (1967) and “Last Time Around” (1968), from the original analog tapes.
