60s

Bob Smith

There are 2 artists with this name: 1. Elaborate reissue of an early 70s American psychedelic classic, originally issued on the Kent label as a deluxe gatefold double album. From the LA area, this mixes sprawling guitar, violin & some keyboard-weirdness with a patch of vague Buckley/Beefheart/Fankhauser reference points on to a base of melodic psych-rock extensions. With a lyrical vantage point not far from the heightened visionary nonsense of a Damon-like character, assumably delivered by Mr.

misunderstood

The Misunderstood were a psychedelic group originating from Riverside, California in the mid-1960s. They moved to London in 1966, with the assistance of their manager, John Peel. In UK they recruited Englishman Tony Hill on guitar, thus forming an international rock-music group, preceding Hendrix[1]. American singer Rick Brown and new British guitarist Hill formed a prolific songwriting team, and their classics are credited to "Hill/Brown". Bass player Steve Whiting was also involved in song writing but never received recognition until the publication of Ugly Things Magazine #21 in 2003.

Bob Lind

Bob Lind (born Robert Neale Lind, in Baltimore, Ohio, 25 November 1942) was a folk music singer/songwriter in the 1960s, who released one transatlantic chart hit single. That song was entitled "Elusive Butterfly", which was a prominent track in 1966.
Career
Lind signed a recording contract with World Pacific Records in 1965, and it was on that label that he had his huge hit. The single may have done even better in the UK Singles Chart had he not had competition from Val Doonican, who released a rival version of the same song. In the end, both versions made the Top Ten.
