Bob Lind (aka Robert Neale Lind) was one of the most obscure figure in folk-rock scene of the 1960s. He led his own band during his academic years and began writing songs in the early 60s. In 1965, he struck a record deal with World Pacific Records (a sub-label of Liberty Records) where he met producer Nick Nitzsche. His debut singles "Cheryl's Goin' Home" was released in 1965, but, strangely, many DJs chose to play the B-side "Elusive Butterfly" instead. The song gained so much popularity that World Pacific Records later changed it to A-side before the year's end. This gentle folk-rock romantic became Top5 hit in the early 1966 and led to Lind's debut album shortly afterward. Sadly, he soon developed a drinking and drugs problem. He was eventually dropped out after an unsuccessful second album and a couple small hit singles. He cut one more album in 1971 before left the music world for good. "Elusive Butterfly" remains one of the best moment in early folk-rock and have been covered by many artists ever since.

I re-designed the layout of category webpages again. This time, I put the category lists as a sidebar so that visitors can navigate through the other categories easier. I only finished with novelty and instrumental one-hit pages and will continue to upgrade others in the future.
Added almost 30 new songs into instrumental one-hit category pages, fixed the video links, and updated all the stores' link.
