I'd forgotten this band even existed. Then I saw one of their songs embedded in a comment thread, turns out by our Mr. Anon here. The Australian Little River Band had half a dozen hits back in the mid to late 1970s. All that I've heard from the band was what you would have called "Easy Listening" or the DJ's term MOR, for Middle Of the Road back then.
Their 3rd album called Diamantina Cocktail, had one song that I recognize, and that was the hit song Help is on its Way that Mr. Anon embedded. Their 4th album, Sleeper Catcher had 2 good hits, Reminiscing and Lady. Cool Change is from the band's 5th album, First Under the Wire.
The Band: (on this song, anyway).
Glenn Shorrock - lead vocals.
David Briggs - lead guitars, Roland synthesizer guitars.
Beeb Birtles - electric and acoustic guitars, vocals.
Graham Goble - electric and acoustic guitars, backing vocals.
Derek Pellicci - Sonor and Syndrums drums, percussion.
Mike Clarke - bass.
Peter Jones - piano and keyboards.
Bill Harrower - saxophone.
Thanks for reading this week, Peakers! Next week I guess will have some more random stuff, with a whole lot still backed up. Have a happy and restful Sunday.
