On June 29, 1978 Little River Band's "Reminiscing" entered the Billboard Hot 100 charts at #81. It would peak at #3, the Australian band's biggest hit in America. It was also a favorite of John Lennon. May Pang once said "Oddly, with all the fantastic music he wrote, "our song" was Reminiscing by the Little River Band."
The band spent the Summer of 78 touring with Boz Scaggs, The Eagles and Jimmy Buffett and learning to produce some of the decade's most memorable yacht rock.
