The Little River Band, from Melbourne, QLD, Australia, were most popular in my “just-married guy, working nights” days, so of course they hold a special place in my heart. Funny, though, until just a couple of years ago I thought the only song they did was “Reminiscing.” Guess I wasn’t paying attention when the announcers on the radio were announcing who did the last song. Or maybe the announcers weren’t so good about who did the last song…
LRB’s original lineup included Beeb Birtles on guitar and vocals, Graham Goble on guitar and vocals, Glenn Shorrock on vocals, Ric Formosa (and later Dave Briggs) on guitar and vocals, Roger McLachlan on bass, and Derek Pellici on drums. None of the original members are with the current lineup. Their biggest hits were recorded between 1977 and 1982, and are still being played tofday.
