I just happened upon "The Little River Band" website and schedule and I am broken hearted to see I just missed literally by days the opportunity to see them LIVE any where near me - I currently live in the Bloomington/Normal, IL area. I would have gladly traveled anywhere in Illinois, Indiana or Missouri to see them. I have come to realize how important music and the memories they bring back are. Right now I am listening to LRB online and tears are streaming down my face with pure emotion. I grew up listening LRB on the radio and it had always been music in the background of my life, until I became an adult. I remember purchasing the 1982 Greatest Hits CD after a failed marriage through Columbia House CD sales! LOL I entered a new relationship and that became OUR music that we listened to over and over. The relationship ended after 3 years and I would listen to this CD over and over at night when I went to bed, reminiscing. One particular day my younger sister borrowed it without permission and I remember just feeling lost without it and crying myself to sleep. Long ago I packed the CD away in a box of love letters and souvenirs. I have burnt all the letters and souvenirs, but I just cracked open the CD for a listen. Maybe someday Ill find someone else to enjoy this music with me again....just maybe! Hope to see LRB LIVE soon!
