Driven by punchy guitar and a solid melody, this track is seriously catchy and has very good lyrics. This is an all time Caravan highlight, and a concert staple, and shows Caravan at their most symphonic. It features Jimmy Hastings amazing flute work, a string arrangement in the beginning by Colin Fretcher which adds a real grand sound and guest musicians on oboe, tenor sax, soprano sax, Aristocracy - Caravan - Waterloo Lily (CD, and trumpet.
This is probably Pye Hastings greatest contribution to Caravan's repertoire. The band exchanges solos in this highly structured and never boring piece which runs twelve-and-a-half minutes. Each member is given adequate room to shine, notable Pye Hastings' ultra-smooth electric guitar and Steve Miller's jazzy electric piano.
Suprisingly this was never released as a single, as it is super catchy and really is a beautiful track. Waterloo Lily marks Caravan's jazziest point, and it is a success, minus a few boring patches of "Nothing at All". Pye Hastings is really given a chance to shine, and seizes on it. Many Caravan purists dislike this release as too jazzy, and as a step away from their roots, but this is really their last traditional album.
Anyways, I ramble. This album is a solid 3. Miller's influence shows very clearly, especially in compositions such as the three-part instrumental suite "Nothing at All". However, most of the tracks of the album bear the imprint of guitarist Pye Hastings, who is also responsible for the bulk of the vocal duties.
This is probably the aspect of "Waterloo Lily" I like the least: Hastings is far from being a bad vocalist, but I find his Robert-Wyatt- lite vocal style somehow irritating, especially when he reaches for the higher notes. The golden voice of Richard Sinclair has way too little space here; the title-track, while a good song, is not as representative of his considerable skills as, say, "Winter Wine" or even "Hello Hello".
Sinclair's presence as a bassist, however, can be felt quite keenly on this album: the above-mentioned "Nothing at All" is based on a pulsating bass riff, and his intricate bass lines are to be heard quite distinctly throughout the album.
The presence of wind instruments particularly Lol Coxhill's saxophone is much stronger here than on the previous albums, reinforcing the record's more pronounced jazzy feel. Some passages of "Nothing at All", for instance, can remind listeners of Soft Machine rather than of Caravan's earlier output - which is no bad thing at all, though I understand it might be somewhat disappointing for those who had loved "If I Could Do.
Besides the jazzier numbers, however, there are the usual for Caravan catchier, poppier offerings, like the excellent "Aristocracy" and the closing "The World Is Yours"; while the Miller-penned "Songs and Signs" occupies a sort of middle ground between these two kinds of tracks.
The album's second suite,Pye Hastings' "The Love in Your Eye", is more typically prog than the first, complete with string arrangements and great flute playing by brother Jimmy. The bonus tracks included in the remastered edition are all Pye Hastings compositions, all more than competent but, in my opinion, nothing to write home about. After this album, Richard Sinclair left to form Hatfield and the North - unfortunately never to reach the success he would have amply deserved - and Pye Hastings became the leader of the band, which he remains to this day.
This album shows quite clearly the transition between these two different periods, and like most transition albums it has its moments - though I can't really bring myself to consider it essential. A solid three stars, possibly three and a half. The follower of 'In the land of grey and pink' with Steve Miller brother of Phil Miller at the keyboards. He replaces David Sinclair and mainly plays electric piano which brings along a more jazzy direction. Remarkable is also the virtuoso Jazz Rock influenced bass playing by Richard Sinclair.
First of all I have to point out the two long tracks. They Album) are worth the price, very impressing, full of variety and jamming. Nothing at all without any vocals has an eminent groove with a nice saxophon part. After 5 minutes the song fades into the interlude It's coming soon introduced by sensitive piano playing. The Love in your Eye is accompanied by some orchestral arrangements and was designated to be a classic for the following live performances of the band.
Unforgettable is the terrific concert with the New Symphonia Orchestra two years later. But I don't want to be misunderstood.
All the other songs are also to recommend. The title track for example is a very dynamic song, excellently arranged. Even Steve Miller's Songs and Signs isn't lacking though it is more popish. Check it out! An organ solo is followed by a pastoral section 4 minutes in that builds back to a full sound. Vocals are back before 6 minutes. It features electric piano, cymbals and bass. The song kicks in Reprise before 7 minutes with sax a minute later.
There is a heavier interlude before the song reverts back to the lighter sound. Trumpet follows and a great flute solo from Jimmy Hastings. Later a long electric piano melody with vocals Pye Hastings coming in at 10 minutes. Then we get a jam to end it. Barely 4 stars but I think it's worth that rating. Richard Sinclair and Pye Hastings fought over this new direction the band had taken to the point that Richard and Steve both left before the next record.
Richard Coughlan and Richard Sinclair dominate the opening title track. The drum and bass thang continues as Nothing At All builds around one of those very straight forward bass riffs that you just can't help liking. Songs and Album) moves out into the jazzy mellow keyboard realms. Not my favourite sound but always Pye Hastings' influence centres any wayward forces firmyl back in the Caravan park.
Is it just me or is Aristocracy the best track Caravan ever wrote. Simply perfect. Pye's the rhythm guitar master, the Richards are a stight as the proverbial gnat's chuff. Coughlan is simply fantastic in this. Now for the main event: The Love in Your Eye. Now this is an extended jazz number that usually gains the plaudits. Unfortunately it is my least favourite. Well, there is too much fairly bland jamming. I hoped for more out of this. There is a change of direction towards the end which rescues the numebr; heavier guitar with a bit of wah.
Strong beat, bass right up on the edge of the beat driving when it needs to be before subtly slipping back a nyum for a wee riff. The World is Yours is another typically Caravan number. A great way to end the album. Just like Porcupine Tree yeah right. Feeling a bit disillusioned that their formidable "Grey and Pink" did not translate to the kind of commercial success they'd been hoping for, Caravan were in a bit of a funk as a working band.
In August of Dave Sinclair left the group. He was convinced things were not to his liking and was interested in working with new musicians, Album) company in Robert Wyatt and eventually Matching Mole. But the others were not ready to pack it in yet Album) invited Steve Miller to join the group. In late '71 they began the sessions for Waterloo Lily which would see the band alter their classic sound a bit to include a jazzier sound.
The opening title track is pure Caravan with great raunchy lyrics, catchy vocals and harmonies, and awesome playing. Pye and Richard have some great jamming here and they even let the new guy in a bit. The long "Nothing at All" is the track that brings the charges that this album is too different, too jazzy. I think the charge is a big silly. They really take only this one track to experiment a bit but the rest of the album sounds plenty like Caravan to me.
A bit later Miller's piano joins in and the jam is on. True it's laid back jazz but it's well done. Then the middle section features a more subdued piano and bass section which slowly picks up steam again until the instrumental jam gets cookin. Great bass, some nice sax and guitar. Starting with comtemplative vocals and strings the track goes on to add oboe, trumpet, flute, and sax. The jamming gets quite intense with some killer performances by Hastings, Sinclair, and Coughlan.
The Decca remaster series includes the usual nice band history as well as four bonus tracks, all previously unreleased. The first two were recorded by Hastings in June of '71 and are basically just demos. The latter two were recorded in November of that year and feature the full Caravan sound. More great cover art here especially when the front and back are folded flat so you can see the whole thing.
While I agree it doesn't quite reach the peak of the previous album Waterloo is still a delightful spin. It's a bit more serious and perhaps mature in some ways. Some of this is actually a good thing but I do agree in places one can hear a hint of weariness-there were without a doubt some heavy frustrations within the group around this time. But it is no reason to pass on Waterloo if you are a Caravan fan.
This is highly recommended to Canterbury and Caravan fans. I would only say that if you are new to Caravan start with the previous album. First of all I would like to say that the order of the songs are all wrong on Waterloo Lily.
This one should have been placed as the last song. I find it rather boring. The rest of the songs are more vocal orientated except for Waterloo Lily which is a little of both.
I think Waterloo Lily is without a doubt the best song on the album. The rest could have been outtakes from In the Land of Grey and Pink. The world is Yours is a little too silly for me. Because of the high level of musicianship and the flawless playing I will give Waterloo Lily 3 stars, even though I almost gave it 2 because of the lacking composition skill.
This was not a good surprise. First crew changes on board of this Caravan. But there will be an incredible quantity of these changes later on in the band's career.
Some forty or so. Difficult to remain consistent under these circumstances I guess. This album is more a jazz-rock one than anything else. And since jazz has never been a favourite genre of mine, I am not blown away with this Lilly from Waterloo. Although the title track has a pleasant mood and is one of my fave from this album. But to face the long jamming "Nothing At All. The middle part maybe.
Yes, this one is OK. Symphonic jazz. More bearable to my ears than the long and introductory jam. Gentle, positive and joyful. A good moment from this Lilly album. My fave here. And the popish "Aristocracy" isn't bad either. Good rhythm for this song which features a nice melody and some great drumming. Mostly instrumental, the bass play from the remaining cousin but not for long is excellent.
As the keys by the way. Somewhat different than usual but performing. This is not a great album. Most songs have little structure and the ones I prefer are the short pieces. The remastered version holds two acoustic songs which give a short break after so many jazzy ones, but let's face the reality. These "Pye's June Thing " and "Ferdinand" won't add anything great to this work. The best bonus track is by far Looking Left Could ahve made the original album But these won't make this album a good one.
Just average. Five out of ten, but I can't upgrade this one to three stars. To complement still more saxophones. I was not wrong to any more jazz of the disc. But soon more swing, be-bop, them expensive are great soul. After great swinging, still more with the turn of Nothing At All Reshowing. Songs And Signs Pop! This is pop, that is that pop should be!
