World Pacific Records 1966
Bob Lind was somewhat of a modern-day minstrel in the 60's and managed to put one memorable song in the top ten.
He was born in Baltimore in 1942 and moved to Chicago as a child. In the 60's he became a singer/songwriter and also a devoted fan of Bob Dylan and his music. Lind moved to Colorado to attend high school.
He continued with his songwriting and performing as a singer, once taking first prize in a hootenanny contest. He performed at The Analyst, a club in Denver, and eventually signed a record deal with World Pacific. It was on that label that he had his huge hit Elusive Butterfly in the winter of 1966. Later the same year he had a minor two-sided hit with Remember The Rain/Truly Julie's Blues and issued his initial album, Don't Be Concerned, borrowing the title from a line in Elusive Butterfly.
Other albums followed in the ensuing years, including Photographs Of Feeling (produced by Jack Nitzsche) and Since There Were Circles.
