I am 23 years old and there are not many things that are more thrilling to me than listening to and singing in tight, three-part harmony. About a year ago, I was at a bar with friends and 'Lonesome Loser' came on the jukebox there (I had never heard of LRB at that point). I was stopped right in my tracks by the a cappella intro. Mainly though, the high harmony is what captivated me. It joys me so much to find your website and discover that you sang the high harmony in LRB, arranged the harmony vocals, and claim that singing harmony in LRB has been the greatest joy of your musical career. The a cappella clips on your site are awesome too. Thanks!
Yesterday evening was my 'Life Love Song' time. I enjoyed your CD like a perfect meal and every song was 'cooked' at the point. Another Diamond in the jewellery. Congratulations. It's a CD, the more you listen to it, the more details you hear. I love the guitar sounds, the lyrics, the overdubbed harmony voices and the arrangements. My favorite on this CD is 'Yearning'. The top shot from your music is 'Initiation Suite' for me. An absolute 'Hammer'. I really hope, you keep on composing and making music. As older the wine, as better it tastes!
Was recently thinking back to my earliest memories of music (born in late 65) & thankfully I opened up my memory of 'Kings of the World'. Congratulations, this song is dreamy and ominous all in one, add to that the 'wah wah' guitar solo blows my mind. I've had that solo stored away in my mind for decades & to hear it again is brilliant. Tonight it came to me that 'Guitar Man' by Bread is a similar song & it has wah wah solo too (though not a patch on yours). Thank you!
G'day Graeham, As an Aussie living in the USA, I am appalled at the site of an LRB cover band currently touring with Wayne Nelson seemingly at the helm. I am a huge fan of the original LRB and always will be. I'm sure that every possible legal avenue has been explored to get back what is rightfully yours. I for one would love to see the original band play again. I won't be seeing the cover band currently touring here. Cheers to you and those harmonies are sadly missed.
Graeham, I received 'Life Love Song' about a week ago and I had to follow up. I can't tell you how many times I've listened to it already - the headphones are on and I'm playing it right now. Honestly - what a great collection of songs. I have a 'Best of Little River Band & Related' playlist and I added every song from this CD to the playlist. I'm going to get a lot of enjoyment from 'Life Love Song' so thanks for making such an excellent album. The title track 'Life Love Song', 'My Conviction', 'All I Wish For', 'Forgotten Song', 'When? Why?', 'If You Only Knew' (congratulate Nathan) and 'For The Rest Of My Life' would have to be my favorites - in a different era, they are all top 10 material in my opinion. I realize I just named almost every song on the disc, but I really enjoy it - as much as I love 'The Days Ahead'. What a great career you've had and I hope there's still more to come.
Dear Mr Graeham Goble, I am 18 years old I am an enormous fan of your music & I think you & Little River Band have a phenomenal & distinctive sound. I always enjoy hearing your music on 'Steve Wright In the Afternoon' & 'The Ken Bruce Show' on BBC Radio 2. I adore all your songs because they are timeless & have fantastic lyrics & melodies, you can always sing and dance to them and they always make me happy and relaxed whenever I hear them. You are a fantastic composer.
Hello Graeham, Last week I take the first download in my life, your new album. I burn a CD and listen to it again and again. An excellent record, as usual. Everyday I have another favorite song. Today it is 'When? Why?'. In 1979, when I was a 16 year old schoolboy, LRB has become a part of my life. I agree with you that the line-up Goble/Farnham/Nelson is a monster line-up. The album 'No Reins' is the best of the last century. My always favorite songs are 'Forever Blue', 'Two Emotions', 'I've Got Everything', 'Til Tonight', 'The Boy Inside' and 'Time & Eternity' (Steve Wade version). I never had the chance to see you live. In 1991 and 1992 I visit LRB concerts in Germany and I was a little bit disappointed that you are replaced by Peter Beckett. Mr. Beckett is a good singer and songwriter but he isn't a Graeham Goble. I got all your solo CDs from the 90s until today. From the end of the 90s I follow to your musical way and the war of the name Little River Band. In my opinion the current line-up of LRB has good vocals (Wayne Nelson), but I miss the songs, that only a Graeham Goble can write. All the best for the future.
Hi Graeham....just finished sending Glenn an email about feeling duped at an LRB concert last night in San Diego. My wife and I felt cheated after listening to your songs performed by an LRB cover band! I didn't do my proper research before purchasing the tickets, but I personally apologize paying hard earned money for that sham. We had a better time singing your songs to the mix tape I made for the trip. Thanks for the great songs! Seeing you in the late '70's will have to be my best LRB moment.
Mr. Goble, I'm sure you hear this often, but I just wanted to take a minute to tell you how much I enjoy your music. Growing up in the 70s & 80s your music was always on the radio here in Atlanta. Hearing your music today brings back memories for me. Thank you for writing such incredible and touching songs.
Hi Graeham, I joined the MSO on double bass in 1975 and one of my first 'sessions' was the orchestral backing for LRB's 'Diamantina Cocktail' album... at Armstrongs. I was bedazzled by the harmony work I heard in my cans that day and have been an LRB fan ever since. LRB is one of those bands where the songwriting/singing/ harmonies/arrangements reach the highest level possible... when everything clicks. CheersPost Message
