Request
Bob Lind "Don't Be Concerned" 1966

For those of you unfamiliar with Bob Lind, he is best known for his big hit song of 1966 "Elusive Butterfly". Following the success of that single Bob went on to record two exquisite baroque-pop LPs in 1966, "Don't Be Concerned" and "Photographs of Feeling" with legendary over-the-top producer Jack Nitzsche (famous for his work with Phil Spector and Neil Young). These 2 albums are underrated, unknown classics and must haves for fans of sixties music in the vein of The Left Banke, The Byrds, PF Sloan, early Gordon Lightfoot, Judee Sill, Donovan, Richie Havens, Val Stoecklin, Margo Guryan, Love, Dylan...etc etc... but Lind's strange poetry, unusual guitar chords and unique vocal-stylings are truly indescribable. A nice CD comp of his material from this period is out-of-print but still findable in used shops- it's called "You Might Have Heard My Footsteps". The original LPs are commonly found in the folk section of used record shops in the $1 to $12 range.

Haven't heard this for many years, I remember playing it over and over. If I remember right the song I liked the best was Dale Ann. Thanks again for the great music you post.
