Singer-songwriter Bob Lind will forever be immortalized
by his 1965 hit, “Elusive Butterfly,” but his career is so
much more interesting than the fading wonder of that one
hit. Once a hard-partying buddy of Charles Bukowski, Lind
was the inspiration for the character “Dinky Summers,” a
down-on-his-luck folk singer in Bukowski’s 1978 novel
Women. Lind also doubled as a writer, penning a number
of novels and plays as well as serving as a long-time staff
writer at the lowbrow tabloid Weekly World News.
If that wasn’t enough, Lind is also responsible for one of
the greatest major-label “loner” albums of all time, 1971’s
Since There Were Circles. After several years languishing
without a second hit for the World Pacific label, Lind
signed to Capitol and went into the studio with some of
the biggest names in the LA country-rock scene including
Doug Dillard, Gene Clark, Bernie Leadon and legendary
session bassist Carol Kaye. While the record was wellreceived
critically, it sold poorly and marked Lind’s bitter
departure from the music business for several decades.
The intervening half-century has been incredibly kind
to Since There Were Circles, and it is now regarded as a
cult masterpiece that pairs perfectly with Gene Clark’s No
Other, Bobby Charles’ self-titled Bearsville album and Lee
Hazlewood’s Cowboy In Sweden. Lind’s songwriting here
is vastly darker and more self-reflective than anything from
his folk-pop period, and the production is simultaneously
loose and rootsy, yet lushly orchestrated and occasionally
bombastic. Lind somehow manages to bring it all together
with wry delivery and literate detail.
