Glenn Wheatley, who was already managing Little River Band in 1980, signed Farnham to his company that year. They decided Farnham’s comeback single would be a reworking of the Beatles’ Help!, which was produced by LRB’s Graeham Goble. The B-side of was Farnham’s songwriting debut Jillie’s Song, co-written with Goble.
Help! was included on the album Uncovered, also produced by Goble. Farnham’s studio band for the album included guitarist Tommy Emmanuel (ex-Southern Star Band), keyboardist Mal Logan (ex-Renée Geyer Band, LRB), drummer Derek Pellicci (LRB) and bass guitarist Barry Sullivan (ex-Chain).
