Don't Be Concerned. It Will Not Harm You.
I know what you're thinking. "Elusive Butterfly? Really?" But once you listen, and stop saying to yourself, "Man, Levi Stubbs can sing,"---and you will say that at least 5 times during the 3:09 duration of the song---you will be hooked on this sublime cover of the Bob Lind hit, which really wasn't so bad in first place.
Taken from their 1970 release, "Still Waters, Run Deep," an album, which like so many of the Four Tops' releases after their staggering Motown run of the 60s, is much better than people remember, assuming anyone remembers any of this stuff at all.
Bob Lind's song has always been a guilty pleasure of mine, and I have to admit, as I type this out, pretending I've loved the Four Tops version all along, I only just heard it yesterday.
