James Reyne needs no introduction – his songs have provided the soundtrack to endless Australian summers, including "The Boys Light Up", "Reckless", "Beautiful People", "Lakeside", "Daughters Of The Northern Coast", "Fall Of Rome", "Hammerhead", "Motor's Too Fast" and "Slave". James has been a part of our lives since making an unforgettable debut on Countdown in 1979, with both arms in plaster (the result of being hit by a car, crossing Swanston Street in Melbourne).
Live in Rio is a 2-disc live album recorded in Circo Voador, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in May 1995.
All Music said "Presenting the master playing at the top of his game, this two-LP live hits set includes tracks from James Reyne's Australian Crawl days as well as from his lucrative solo career. He fronts a tight band and does a dynamic job capturing the feel of one of his live shows. Most surprising are the standout tracks "Harvest Moon" "Slave" and "Winds of Change"... which really carry a punch live." adding "All in all an impressive live album from one of Australia's greatest superstars".
Already purchased. No ironclad guarantees required.
Bit of an obscure JR album to reissue. Keep them coming.
Thanks for providing that link, Rickers. I wonder what “already purchased, no ironclad guarantees required “ means. Is the source legitimate? When LIR came out in ‘95, I thought it was the hottest thing since sliced bread, but now in hindsight, I’m not too sure. I’d say James’s current band line up is superior to this one.

This is FANTASTIC for us fans to be able to have as it was never released on LP.
Sambo, I have investigated the possible video of this show over the years. The definitive answer was there was some video shot for "Oh No Not You gain" and many photographs taken by the Director, but I believe the entire show was not filmed.
Hope everyone buys this so there will be MORE vinyl releases...

Signed copy arrived today (Friday) from Liberation.
This reissue release has come completely out of the blue. Really, really grateful that any of James albums are released on vinyl at all but I’m hoping that at the very least EDD and WOB can be reissued some day. All of the others would be great to have as well. I’m surprised that LIR was chosen ahead of every other album. Hopefully it sounds good on vinyl and hasn’t just been transferred from the Original CD mix. The album cover gives no additional information on mastering it for vinyl.
