Reminiscing Good Ol' Late 70s Rock

"Little River Band is one of the earliest Aussie bands that made huge success in US charts during 70s though early 80s. Particularly late 70s hit sensation was remarkable. I can say this compilation is a nice proof how the musicians of the era created excellent songs still memorable to music fans. CD version from '82 original greatest hits has less tracks than the recent extended version. Yet 12-track version is more than enough for you to enjoy their music. Because all 12 songs are so great.
Among their great songs I would pick...
REMNISCING: This nostalgic hit no doubt represents their entire music career. Also one of the most hard-to-remember-title songs.
LONESOME LOSER: A touch of Styx or Kansas dramatic progressive hard rock style. I used to misrecongnize this song as Kansas's CARRY ON WAYWARD SON.(Introducing part is so similar).
TAKE IT EASY ON ME: Feel of westcoast rock, somewhat Eagles or Jackson Browne styled.
LADY: Masterpiece ballad track that can easily rival Eagles and Abba.
Verdict: Shorter than recent version but still keeps core hits.
Rating: 92 out of 100
Recommended: Anyone who like late 70s rock. Particularly Eagles, Doobie Brothers, and some of Styx fans."
Mellow Rock At Its Best

"This is mellow rock at its best. I have always liked anything The Little River Band has put out. My favorite tracks are Lonesome Loser, Reminiscing, Lady, Happy Anniversary, Help Is On Its Way and The Night Owls. These are truly LRB gems. They are a true down to earth band with a big sound to them. Reminiscing is about a man who wants his girl to go walking through the park with him and reminiscing about all the good times they had together. Happy Anniversary is about a man wishing his wife a Happy Anniversary and he can't get her off his mind. These two are true love songs. Lady is another love song. This man is telling his wife or girlfriend that he loves her reguardless of what she thinks. Lonesome Loser is about a man who has lost at love and he is very lonesome for affection and he can't get it. All in all The Little River Band will always be one of my favorite bands."

"For real LRB fans, the fact that this CD contains an far-too-short edited version of "It's a Long Way There" is reason enough to avoid this one. That cut was their magnum opus - how disappointing to have it truncated."
