Buffalo Springfield: For What It's Worth.
"For What It's Worth" is a song written by Stephen Stills. This song is about protesting anti-loitering laws and the closing of the West Hollywood nightclub Pandora's Box. Stills was not there when they closed the club, but had heard about it from his band members. It was recorded on December 5, 1966, and released as a single in January 1967, it was later added to the re-release of their first album, Buffalo Springfield. I think the phantom guitar player is Jeff Beck.
