  1. singalong old-fashioned pop for older music fans, the follow-up Lyn Paul follow-up was even better – I Get A Little Sentimental could have been sung by Vera Lynn in another reality. Only it’s better than that makes it sound. Their changed line-up hit in 1978 of a song called Anthem is pretty decent too, you wouldn’t think they were the same band. Co-incidentally I just had reason to compare The Who’s See Me Feel Me/Listening To You (which I just heard for the first time) with The New Seekers hit version of Pinball Wizard/See Me Feel Me/Listening To You – and the band outdo Roger Daltrey in the climax stakes for the end of the medley. Daltrey’s Who version is positively subdued in comparison (as I’m sure Townsend wanted). So there you have it, The New Seekers have more vocal balls (or at least an ability to take it OTT) than The Who, hah! 🙂

    I suggest Rock fans keep the smelling salts handy before listening to this, play loud…. 🙂

  2. I enjoyed “I’d Like To Teach The World To Sing” as it morphed into “Buy the World a Coke” when I was a kid. Plus, I really liked Judith Durham’s voice so, I lean more towards the original The Seekers. It’s a shame she parted ways with that group. Lyn Paul’s voice is close to Durham’s.
