BILL LLOYD -Feeling the Elephant LP (Throbbing Lobster 15)

Bill Lloyd -Feeling the Elephant LP (Throbbing Lobster #15) A collection of demos that Bill recorded in Nashville from 1984-86 - and some of the finest poprock ever. Unfortunately for Throbbing Lobster, The Sweethearts of the Rodeo had a big hit with 'Since I Found You', co-written by Bill and Radney Foster, and RCA wasted little time signing Foster and Lloyd to a nice country contract that produced two absolutely essential alternative-country LPs. The bad news was that the RCA deal also required Bill to completely abandon his alternative rock career - specifically to cease all activities in support of his LP on Throbbing Lobster. So the "Elephant" record-release party was the last 1980s gig that Bill ever played of this stuff. (But the whole town turned out for it - everyone from George Hamilton the fifth to Pam Tillis to Minnie Pearl!) Feeling the Elephant got reissued on DB a while later and it's still available, and of course after the Foster & Lloyd thing ran its course Bill became one of power-pop's modern greats.
