From the Land of Band Box Records

Colorado Music Hall of Fame Inductee

BOB LIND ANALYST

Bob Lind attended Aurora Central High School and found national fame with his “The Elusive Butterfly”.  The Verve-Folkways LP shown below was reportedly unauthorized, containing tracks which were recorded in West Denver’s Band Box Studios and apparently sold to Verve without Lind’s knowledge. (Lind Colorado Music Hall of Fame Page)

These comments from Country Paul Payton: “Whoever Pete Spargo (producer) and Pat Williams (arr/cond.) were, they did an abominable job trying to cover Bob Lind’s acoustic-guitar-only accompaniment with a sound that tried to approximate his successes on World Pacific. I don’t know if anyone at Band Box – or who – got those songs out of there, but it did Lind’s career no service whatsoever. As a radio station Music Director, I listened to at least some of all the tracks on the album; it was an exercise in both anger and frustration.

The arranging was sloppy – as though the orchestra couldn’t hear the track it was playing along to and frequently losing the beat – and it was a naked attempt to cash in on Lind’s success. In its most benign possibility, Lind might have sent demos to MGM is an attempt to get a recording contract; when it hit big on WP, someone found the demos and slapped on the overdub. In a less generous light, perhaps money was exchanged, which Lind was not in on. As I recall, in that era, MGM was desperate for some kind of rock credibility – they were watching other labels being revered for signing and supporting credible artists, but they kept faltering with “far from ready for prime time” bands like the Boss Town Sound hype, one of the most notorious misfires of the ’60s.This release was simply more fuel for that misfire.”
