    Default The Seekers and Judith Durham

    Though I know I commented on them, the other day in a thread - they are easily in one of my top 3 60s Groups and probably my favourite Australian Group/Band Singer - in-extreme particular Judith - who was such a stunning looking gal back in the 60s (though The Seekers and "I'll Never Find Another You" was 10 years before my time!!

    Not as I am proclaiming all their stuff was excellent, but in the correct harmonic mix like with "I'll Never Find Another You" and Waltzing Matlida, I'm an Australian, Moringtown Ride and Georgy Girl but to name a few - the singing in tune with the other members all at once is some of the best I have ever seen!!

    Georgy Girl live in Australia - when they went back was an amazing performance live indeed and the choir that accomponied it/them was equaly great too in my opinion and to think they got 200 thousand there in them day's - 50 years since (though abliet not all was for them , as others are said to have attened other parts of the event I have read

    The Seekers though are a true credit to Australia in my opinion and represent the good-ness of Australia - when many moved there to start a new fresh start that! So if your a fan of Judith and The Seekers reply if you want!

    Showing my age referencing songs as "Numbers" like my Gran-parents - I have only just discoverd a new -ish version (2001) of Morningtown Ride with special alterations to Xmas, in a similar way how Elton John alterd Candle In The Wind for Princess Diana from the Marilyn Monroe version (as is popular these days - though yes the 2 songs lyrics became change for differing reasons) it is still relevant I think

    I would add a link but don't wanna get in bother, but if you love The Seekers like me "seek" this one out - it's a brilliant modern interpration of an old classic I feel

    I mentioned in that other thread about my parents having a Seekers LP of songs, and the fact that it had on the cover the group dressed in some very 1960s Carnaby Street-alike clothes. They also had "A World Of Our Own" as a single in their 7 inch collection - 1965 was it now?

    I am certain that we sung Morningtown Ride at Infant School, probably at Friday assembly - it sounds like one of those songs that you would hear on a children's programme such as A Handful of Songs.
    I am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).

    True indeed Tex - until I re-heard the Morningtown Ride Song I had forgot all about and it was obliverated from my mind I had heard it

    The best thing is I can only recall as far back as being 5 year old generally, but I must easily without doubt not even of been 3 when I first heard it on reflection now!!
