Graeham: I have followed you guys for YEARS. I teach at the University of Delaware on the U.S. East Coast. In about 2 weeks, my 90 freshmen students will be introduced to the original LRB, as I use 'It's a Long Way There' as a theme song for our semester. Your lyrics are PERFECT for young college students who have a VERY short, yet VERY long trip to their college degrees! Thanks for the great support you are providing to my students!
I was all over LRB even before I got my first radio DJ JBL at 15. LRB had just released Diamantina Cocktail, and I was wearing that record out! The vocals were so tight, and the precision of the rhythm and vocals gave enough room to all the players to spice it up with amazing talent. I never lost my zeal for the core band. They have never been topped by anybody. I love LRB's 70's and early 80's work.
I'm ready for a GG tour!
I am 53. I was mesmerised from the moment I heard 'It's A Long Way There'. I bought every album. Each single was more innovative than the one before, and the album tracks spoke with aching honesty of the 'Days On The Road'. I liked LRB better than The Eagles and I adore them. Elton John was number one for me, but I saved my money to buy all LRB albums. I saw LRB in 1980. You were the finest writers of the era. I wish to validate in every way your musicianship and writing. The Adelaide concert with you, Glenn & Beeb was a triumph. The 'Full Circle' performance changed my life. Most sincerely
Graeham, You are an amazing and brilliant songwriter and singer. Your songs are so touching and poignant. I have your Little River Band cd and I love playing it so much that I may wear it out
Hi Graeham I have been a fan of your work and all the proper LRB years since the outset. I just wanted to say thanks for giving me the passion and a working music career here in Ballarat and Melbourne.I have always admired your detail to harmonies and the perfection that doesn't exist anymore. Thanks for every thing you have done. Cheers
I admire greatly what you have done and your website is impressive. Many musicians could learn a lesson in organization and detail looking at your website. I am a musician, not pro, but was never in a band where anyone could handle the vocals aside me. You gotta have at least 3, preferably 4, strong singers for LRB stuff... thanks
Thanks Graeham for your great music, my life wouldn't be the same without it.
Mr Graeham, I wanted to write a message to thank you for writing some of the best and most influential songs of my generation. I am 46 and grew up on your music. I'm a songwriter and in my attempt to write quality songs and I can always tune in to your music for inspiration.
I have been a huge fan of LRB since your very first album and I have all the albums the band released. I still listen to them on a regular basis. I saw the band live only once, at Hammersmith Odeon in around 1978 or 79. Your song "It's A Long Way There" is probably my number one favourite song of all time. Best wishes, and a genuine thank you for the music.Post Message
