Bob Lind "Since There Were Circles" (US Folk, SSW 1970)

Bob Lind was a star of the mid 60's US folk rock boom hitting the top 5 in America with his own song 'Elusive Butterfly'. This song was then covered by many other artists around the world, as were later songs by the likes of the Turtles, Noel Harrison, Nancy Sinatra and Bobby Sherman, including 'Counting' (Marianne Faithfull) and 'Mr. Zero' (Yardbirds' lead singer Keith Relf).
In 1970 Lind recorded 'Since There Were Circles' , released on Capitol Records in the US in 1971, with sadly limited availability elsewhere. It is another excellent collection of sensitive folk rock songs and pretty melodies, boasting special backing from guests Rod Dillard, Doug Dillard and Gene Clark.

A rare and sought after album (around $200 on recent search) this the first time the album has been reissued, and is enhanced by the inclusion of four bonus tracks being supplied directly by Bob.

(Trivia note these tracks are being mixed, and the album re-mastered by Lind's present near neighbour in Florida, Aerovon Tom Hartman.).

Today Bob is a writer with 5 novels to his name, but his music has not been forgotten and Richard Hawley, the High Llamas, Pulp number amongst his contemporary fans (Pulp even recorded a song called 'Bob Lind').

Many, many thanks for fulfilling my requests. Very sorry to have missed Stone Poneys 1, but am very grateful for Evergreen Vol .2 and, at long last, the chance to hear Bob Lind again.

Hi ... thank you very much for this wonderful post. I visit your blog nearly every day with great pleasure. You offer a lot of very good stuff.
Do you have more by Bob Lind? Or by David Blue his record "These 23 Days in September". Unfortunately the post at the blog "Music Saves Lives" is no longer available.

I'm looking for this album for long, long years... thank you very much! The first two Bob Lind's Jack Nitzsche produced LPs on World Pacific are great folk type music. That one edited on Verve is not that good but has its highlights... hope you post them here someday.
Talking about BL covers I do like 'Cheryl's Going Home' recorded by Adam Faith.
