Waterloo Lily is a 1972 released album by Caravan on the Deram label. The track "The Love in Your Eye" has been featured as a Caravan live track for many years. Waterloo Lily is the only album by Caravan with Steve Miller as the keyboard player. Miller brought a jazzier feel to the sound of Caravan than had been heard on the previous album[1] through his stylings on the Wurlitzer piano rather than the Hammond organ favored by previous keyboardist Dave Sinclair. Guests Phil Miller and Lol Coxhill from Steve Miller's previous band Delivery play on "Nothing at all", an instrumental modeled after Miles Davis's "Right Off". Soon after Waterloo Lily, Richard Sinclair and Steve Miller left Caravan to play with Phil Miller and Coxhill in a re-formed Delivery, which led to the formation the band Hatfield and the North.

The album cover is detail from "The Tavern Scene" from A Rake's Progress by William Hogarth.
