The Little River Band is an Australian rock band formed in Melbourne in 1975. They were the first Australian rock group to enjoy sustained commercial success in the United States. During their career the band have sold more than 30 million records and scored 13 American Top 40 hits.

This box set is a collection of key original albums by The Little River Band, interviews and new live video and audio performances from the band’s 2015, 40th Anniversary Tour. The set also includes new track “Clean The Water” which is being released in conjunction with the Clean Water Campaign in the USA. The lavish ‘clam shell’ box also comes packaged with an accompanying booklet.

With more than five million plays, “Reminiscing”, included here on the “One Night In Mississippi” CD, is one of the most frequently played songs in the history of American radio, the highest achievement of any Australian pop song internationally, and according to Albert Goldman’s biography, was one of John Lennon’s favourite songs.
