These days Carol Lloyd is justifiably proud of what she achieved during those years with Railroad Gin and The Carol Lloyd Band.

          That Carol Lloyd did not achieve international stardom is in no way due to any particular lack of talent within her tiny frame. Simply, it eluded her because she began singing at a time when Australians had even less confidence in each other's abilities to compete on the world stage than they do today. The fact that she became a rock legend in her home town in spite of those negative attitudes says a lot for what she might have been able to achieve if those in positions of power had been working 'for' the Australian music industry instead of against it.
          These days Carol Lloyd is justifiably proud of what she achieved during those years with Railroad Gin and The Carol Lloyd Band. Impressive sales of upwards of 10,000 copies of the 'A Matter Of Time' album. Open air concerts attracting audiences of 25,000 or more. World wide recording contracts, hit singles and a swag of local pop awards. She has more than earned her place in Australian rock history.
          You are hereby invited to explore this site which I hope you will agree is a fitting tribute to an incredibly talented lady and her equally talented musical colleagues. Launched on her birthday, Oct 17 1999, this site has been compiled with the help of 25 years worth of press clippings and contains many previously unpublished photographs.
          Just continue to follow the link prompts at the base of each tour page, ...oh, and enjoy the party!
