Playing to Win is the eighth studio album by Little River Band released on One Way Records. This album is the second studio album with John Farnham as lead vocalist and the first to be recorded by the band in the United States. Both Farnham (2003) and Little River Band (2004) are ARIA Hall of Fame inductees.[1] The album peaked at No. 75 on The Billboard 200.[2][3]

The first single from the album was "Playing to Win", which was released in December 1984 and reached No.59 on the Australian Singles Chart, No. 15 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart and No. 60 on The Billboard Hot 100.[4][5] Channel 7 used "Playing to Win" as its football promo for its VFL coverage in early 1985. The second single, "Blind Eyes", failed to enter the chart.
