I was never a Big Maniacal Fan of the group The Seekers, though I liked most of the things I heard them do, a lot. Not limited to, but especially their three big hits, "Georgy Girl," "You Know I'll Never Find Another You," and "A World of Our Own." A while back, I posted several videos of them, here and the very end of their farewell concert on the BBC in 1968. The lead singer Judith Durham had only initially joined them as a fill-in for 10 weeks, but it last far-longer. Eventually, she wanted to get back to the other kinds of music that interested here, notably jazz, and she was an accomplished pianist. The breakup was amicable, and in fact they had a 25th reunion concert, which I include a song from in the video linked above.
As I mentioned, I had posted the last song from their farewell concert. (Which, it will not likely shock you, was an encore of "Georgy Girl." -- which followed a touching and obviously appropriate rendition of their hit, "The Carnival is Over.") But...how's about seeing that entire concert? Well, okay, you asks you gets.
Accepting the dated nature of this 50-minute broadcast, it's extremely entertaining even today. More so, of course, if you liked The Seekers, but there's plenty here to enjoy here, 46 years later.
