Sleeper Catcher / First Under The Wire - Little River Band

Sleeper Catcher / First Under The Wire
The Little River Band are a Australian rock band, formed in Melbourne in 1975. The band chose its name after passing a road sign leading to the Victorian township of Little River, near Geelong, on the way to a performance.   The band has enjoyed sustained commercial success not only in Australia, but also in the United States where they have sold more than 25 million records and achieved 13 U.S. Top 40 hits.   The band's original members are: Glenn Shorrock, Graeham Goble, Beeb Birtles, Ric Formosa, Roger McLachlan, and Derek Pellicci. Goble was the only original member born in Australia.   Sleeper Catcher was the fourth album by the Little River Band, released during 1978. It reached #16 in the United States on the Billboard Top LPs & Tapes chart. The album was certified Platinum by the RIAA in 1979.   From this album, the band earned its first two "top ten" U.S. successes with the songs ‘Reminiscing’ and ‘Lady’.   First Under the Wire was the fifth album from the Little River Band, released in 1979 by Capitol Records. It was the band's only top ten album in the U.S.   The album included two top 10 Billboard Hot 100 hits in ‘Lonesome Loser’ and ‘Cool Change’.

Restless Night : The Complete Pop-Psych Sessions 1967-71
Released on 06/09/2010. Octopus's sole 1969 long-player Restless Night is something of a treasure among '60s Brit-psych fans due to its mixture of proto-progressive riffs, accomplished pop tunes and sparkling Beatlesque flourishes. The band evolved out of the thriving Hertfordshire beat scene that also gave us The Zombies, The Gods and those other cult pop-psych heroes Forever Amber. Octopus' music was coloured by the use of keyboards and layered vocal harmonies in much the same way. As The Cortinas they enjoyed several years of local success which culminated in the 1968 CBS  single Phoebe's Flower Shop . The single was pure pop confectionery and betrayed little of the band's tight, melodic brand of rock. By the time they'd been signed to Larry Page's Penny Farthing label in 1969, their sound had expanded to encompass the burgenoning progressive scene, the dawn of the solo troubadour and the omnipresent influence of The Beatles, illustrated perfectly by their live sets of the period which included songs by Yes, Neil Young, Cat Stevens and even note-for-note renditions of "I Am The Walrus" and "Baby, You're A Rich Man"!

The first single and album opener The River is a tough dancefloor groover complete with lysergic fuzz guitar and has appeared on several compilations while the album cover art is an eye-opening classic of the "so bad it's good" school. Much to the band's horror, they discovered that Page had released a bastardised version of the album which omitted two of the original tracks and added the b-side of the single. Previous re-issues of the album have, not surprisingly, stuck to the erroneous tracklist but here at Rev-Ola we always strive to give you more. And you love it don't you, you little beauties?
