A label by label guide to the major (and to some of the not-so-major) record companies of the UK and USA. The articles are brief - no more than a page per label and on occasion no more than a paragraph. Polydor Records gets four. The third highlights the 1970s, "a golden age of pop for the label. Slade, New Seekers, The Rubettes and Rory Gallagher were major players in the label's fortunes..." (page 204).

Becoming Elektra: The True Story of Jac Holzman's Visionary Record Label
Mick Houghton

Publisher: Jawbone
ISBN: 1-906002-29-0 (paperback)
ISBN 13: 978-1-906002-29-9
Publication date: 1st September 2010

A fascinating history of the Elektra record label, home to recording artists such as Bread, Harry Chapin, Judy Collins, the Doors, Tom Paxton and Carly Simon and to imported acts such as Lindisfarne, Queen and the New Seekers: "In the early 70s, Elektra embraced a sweeping spectrum of contrasting artists and style, ranging from Right On Be Free to three albums by the New Seekers, licensed from Philips in the UK, or the power-pop of the Wackers and Crabby Appleton." (page 266).

Three albums? There were actually five, if you include the Best Of compilation, released as the New Seekers departed Elektra for MGM. And to prove it the book includes thumbnail photos of the New Seekers' album covers from the Elektra catalogue: Beautiful People (page 232), New Colours (page 233), We'd Like To Teach The World To Sing (page 233), Circles (page 278) and The Best Of The New Seekers (page 279).

The New Seekers were also featured on the Elektra triple-album compilation Garden Of Delights, a poster for which is featured on page 277.

ISBN 13: 978-1-86508-072-7
Publication date: 1999

ISBN 13: 978-1-86448-768-8
Publication date: 15th June 2000

This is arguably the definitive guide to pop and rock music by Australian recording artists from the 1950s to the 1990s. It includes information on Peter Doyle and on Mick Flinn's group The Mixtures. The New Seekers even get brief mentions in the entries for James Taylor Move (page 326), Procession (page 498) and The Seekers (page 564).

Whilst the link with The Seekers is obvious enough (ex-Seeker Keith Potger founded the New Seekers), the links with the other two bands are more obscure. In the case of James Taylor Move, the link is with band members Alan Tarney and Trevor Spencer, who worked as session players for the New Seekers and wrote and produced their 1977 single Give Me Love Your Way.

The link with Procession is the song Anthem (One Day In Every Week). Written by Procession band members Brian Peacock and Mick Rogers, the song was released as the group's début single in January 1968 with the title Anthem. The group re-recorded the song and re-issued it as a single in February the following year, this time with the title One Day In Every Week. Neither version made it into the charts. It wasn't until 1978 when the New Seekers recorded the song (rolling both titles into one) that Anthem (One Day In Every Week) finally became a hit.
