The last album for little river band.
(3 out of 5 stars)
"The "World Wide Love" album was actually cobbled together from two Little River Band albums that flopped in the USA(the very under-rated "Get Lucky" album and "Monsoon").The "song "World Wide Love" was added on but doesn't really sound like Little River Band.This album does have some good tracks like "there's not another you,if I get lucky,I dream alone,the one that got away" all from the "Get Lucky" album(well produced by Dennis Lambert)and "Soul Searching,Son Of A Famous Man"and other tracks from "Monsoon"."Son Of a famous Man" was actually written about John Lennon's son Julian and features Beatle style guitar backing."
The Triumphant Return of Glen Shorrock!

"GREAT CD! The vocal harmonies that made LRB famous in the first place are back and better than ever. Glen Shorrock's raspy vocals put that trademark LRB touch back on all of the songs."
The pinnacle of Little River Band's history

"After the release of "Time Exposure," I felt LRB had peaked. I have exhausted all searches to find a new copy of Time Exposure. When "Playing to Win" was released I was somewhat disappointed; not expecting, but hoping it could live up to Time Exposure. Then, after all hope of any new LRB had died away, I am rewarded during my annual pilgrimage to the music store in search of new LRB. I thought, "World Wide Love? Hmmmmm. Well, most of the tune titles look deep. It IS a new LRB release after too many years. It IS an import that I may not be able to find at some point, just like Time Exposure. I had better buy it." As I'm sure many LRB diehards would agree; I was astounded by all but one of the tracks. The way I saw it was that LRB was at the pinnacle of their career. Now, after having the CD stolen and the cassettes worn out, I find myself yearning for a listen to that wonderful collection of songs again from a good crisp source. I must give this a five star rating."
