The Definitive Collection, originally released in Australia in 2002 and released in the U.S. in 2004 offers 13 of Little River Band's biggest hits among its 19 tracks,[3] including Help Is on Its Way, "Happy Anniversary", "Reminiscing", "Lady", "Lonesome Loser", "The Night Owls", "Cool Change", "Take It Easy on Me" and "Man on Your Mind". While the 2000 expanded version of Greatest Hits has more actual charting American hits, including "I'll Always Call Your Name" and "You're Driving Me Out of My Mind", neither of which are here, this nevertheless has the great majority of LRB's best work.[4]
