Elusive Butterfly - The Complete Jack Nitzsche Sessions
(Big Beat / Ace)


Back in the ‘60s, Bob Lind was a renowned folk-poet and singer/songwriter genius who was notably produced by the late great studio wizard Jack Nitzsche. Lind’s early 90’s American best of CD release on Capitol / EMI has long been out of print so it’s cool that over in the U.K. the Ace Records offshoot Big Beat has compiled a 25 track best of by Bob Lind entitled Elusive Butterfly - The Complete Jack Nitzsche Sessions. As the CD proves, Lind’s huge Top ten hit from late ‘65, “Elusive Butterfly” was a hard act to follow. Lind’s 25 track Big Beat U.K. compilation pretty much mirrors the out of print U.S. pressing while Big Beat packs the CD booklet with sixteen pages of fascinating liner notes from April 2007 chronicling Lind’s all too brief career as a fleeting star. As the liner notes indicate, Lind made a recent comeback with the September 2005 recording and subsequent CD release of Bob Lind Live At The Luna Star Café. These days Lind resides in South Florida and his live from Florida CD is a welcome glimpse into some timeless music by one of the great folk-rock poets of the ‘60s.
