THE WATERLILLIES: Where Are They Now? Where Were They, Then?

The holidays are behind us, the new year is ahead. I have neglected this blog for a couple weeks, but things are changing. My computer has had a virus, and although most of the computer is still affected by the virus, I have found a loophole to get some things done. I will be working on an essay of sorts, beginning this evening.

In the meantime, I want to post a couple videos by one of my favorite bands of the 90's. I don't remember how I even discovered this band, but I can only assume that it was from a promotional disc that we must have gotten at the CD shop that I worked at. Both videos have had less than 1000 views, on YouTube, which means it's time to introduce this band to the world!

The band is THE WATERLILLIES. They are a duo, comprised of producer, Ray Carroll, with vocalist Jill Alikas-St. Thomas. I have both compact discs that they released, and I am going to post videos from each of those albums. "TIRED OF YOU" is from the first album, and has a rather "dated" early 90's sound. The second video, "TEMPTED", comes from the 1994 album of the same name. As far as I know, they never really tasted success, although according to Wikipedia, the Junior Vasquez remix of "NEVER GET ENOUGH" (also from TEMPTED) made it to #1 on the Dance charts.

TEMPTED remains one of my favorite albums of the 90's.
