Little River Band Live Exposure: Live In Texas October 7, 1981 (Cherry Red/MVD DVD)

 

Picture: C Sound: C+ Extras: C- Concert: C+

 

 

Formed in Melbourne, Australia in 1975, The Little River Band became hitmakers in the 1970s with over a dozen Top 40 hits into the 1980s in the U.S. alone. Their music is still alive on the radio, in hits sets and licensed to hit films and TV shows, but more material is in the vaults and Cherry Red has licensed a 1981 concert and issued it on DVD through Music Video Distributors. Live Exposure: Live In Texas is a filmed concert (75 minutes) of the band at their glory peak.

 

The songs here include:

 

1)     Its A Long Way There

2)     Man On Your Mind

3)     Mistress Of Mine

4)     Happy Anniversary

5)     Dont Let The Meddle Win

6)     Reminiscing

7)     Ballerina

8)     Cool Change

9)     The Night Owls

10) Help Is On The Way

11) Lonesome Loser

12) Its Not A Wonder Lady

13) Just Say That You Love Me

 

 

It is a good concert and I just wish it had been longer and since they had more hits ahead, you will not hear The Other Guy and was surprised not to hear Take It Easy On Me, but it is a good, solid show by a band that never got the respect it deserved for all the hits it had. They still play together, but no comeback singles have emerged. This is worth seeing if you like their music.

 

The 1.33 X 1 image was originally shot on film, but this is a very poor analog video transfer of the original material, material that could be upgraded and remastered for DVD and Blu-ray. In its softness, you can see the good color and it was certainly a good-looking show for its type. The Dolby Digital 2.0 sound is barely stereo and a few generations down as well, but is less worn by default. Previews for other Cherry Red product are the only extras, limited as that is.
