Most people assumed that Buffalo Springfield's reunion at last month's Bridge School Benefit — Neil Young, Stephen Stills and Richie Furay's first performance together in 42 years — would be a one-time event, but it turns out they are contemplating a tour next year. The Los Angeles Times' Pop & Hiss blog reported Monday that they were "hearing rumblings" that the band was contemplating a tour, which has now been confirmed to Rolling Stone by David Spero, who manages Furay. "There are on-going discussions," he said, when asked about the possibility of a tour.

Days after returning from the Bridge School Benefit, Furay spoke with Rolling Stone . "We just picked up where we left many, many years ago," he said. "It almost felt like going back in time." He also said he was hopeful about the possibility of doing more shows. "I'm never going to say never again," he says. "After we digest what happened and let a couple of weeks go by we'll touch bases again and see how everybody feels and what they want to do. We've certainly proved we can do this if we want to."

“Try a Little Tenderness”

Otis Redding | 1966

This pop standard had been previously recorded by dozens of artists, including by Bing Crosby 33 years before Otis Redding, who usually wrote his own songs, cut it. It was actually Sam Cooke’s 1964 take, which Redding’s manager played for Otis, that inspired the initially reluctant singer to take on the song. Isaac Hayes, then working as Stax Records’ in-house producer, handled the arrangement, and Booker T. and the MG’s were the backing band. Redding’s soulful version begins quite slowly and tenderly itself before mounting into a rousing, almost religious “You’ve gotta hold her, squeeze her …” climax. “I did that damn song you told me to do,” Redding told his manager. “It’s a brand new song now.”
