And here’s the guy John Farnham replaced – Glenn Shorrock – leading the Little River Band in their great 1979 hit “Lady” from their breakthrough Sleeper Catcher album. Little River Band was sort of Australia’s version of the Eagles. They were one of the first bands I ever loved – and I loved their music before I even knew who they were. Songs like “Lady”, “Reminiscing”, and “Lonesome Loser” (with its fantastic harmony-rich chorus) – their first string of really big hits – always remind me of a time when I was 6 or 7 years old, riding in the car out to Kenosha to pick up my dad from work. I had no idea who was singing the songs – I just loved when they came on the radio. I still love when they come on the radio. This song’s piano-and-bass introduction alone is enough to induce a nostalgic swoon with me, but Shorrock’s handsome, understated vocal is what really hits my sweet spot.
