Where are the original Little River Band hits?

When I try to listen to LRB's greatest hits, I can only select "The Hits (revisited)" from 2016. Sadly, these songs are nothing like the originals. I have a 1995 cd called "Forever blue - The very best of" that has many of these hits in the original recording. Why is this album, or the recordings of these songs, not available on Spotify? Does the band feel their new recordings are better? Because sadly, they really don't bring about the same response for me.

Hey there @SchijnHeilig,

 

When an album or song isn't added, or is removed, or made available only in certain regions, it's almost always the choice of the artist or label - spotify wants people to enjoy an expanding library of over 30 million tracks but individual copyright decisions aren't theirs to make.

 

Here's what you can do to get that added:

 

Hope that helps! ^_^

I have found the same thing with LRB. I suspect that the recordings are those of the current LRB lineup. There is a US band with the same name that has stolen and register the LRB name. Crazy as it seems the original band is not allowed to perform under the LRB name anymore. There was a story on 60 Min about it. The LRB songs on spotify are terrible renditions of the originals.
