Beeb Birtles was a member of Zoot, Mississippi and Little River Band. Zoot were Adelaide’s top band in 1967 and soon took on Melbourne donning their famous pink attire. Think Pink! Think Zoot! With the addition of Rick Springfield, the band changed to a harder edged sound and image. 
In 1970, after placing 2nd in the National Battle of the Sounds, Zoot recorded a thunderous version of ‘Eleanor Rigby’ which remained in the Top 40 charts for over 20 weeks. 



Beeb later joined Graeham Goble and Mississippi, releasing hit single ‘Will I?’. After recruiting Glenn Shorrock in late 1974 LRB was formed. LRB went on to sell over 30 million records, with 10 studio albums reaching top 10 in Australia. LRB also achieved 6 US Top 10 singles, the first band to do so. Part of the In Concert #4 Series
