Quiet Heart: The Best Of The Go-Betweens is an eighteen-track compilation curated by past band members Robert Forster, Lindy Morrison, Amanda Brown and Robert Vickers to celebrate the work of the group. The album is the first retrospective to span The Go-Between's entire working life. It is coupled with a bonus live disc, Vienna Burns, which captures The Go-Betweens on stage in 1987. The Go-Betweens started life in Robert Forster's imagination. The tall boy from the suburbs of Brisbane dreamt big. In the mid-1970's Grant McLennan arrived from the wilds of tropical Cairns to attend boarding school in the same city. The pair met each other while students at the University of Queensland and bonded over foreign cinema, literature and music. If they hadn't formed a band, they would have become filmmakers. Thankfully, they became The Go-Betweens.
