The New Seekers ... prepare to go solo
by Camilla Beach

At the same time that the announcement of a general election was made in the UK, the New Seekers held a press conference to tell the world that they were splitting up. As Camilla Beach's article says: "Neither announcement came as a surprise." The news of the split had leaked out the previous evening and Lyn Paul is reported as saying: "My mother's been up all night with crying fans."

The article mostly quotes Marty Kristian, who pointed out the parallel with The Seekers:

"Our careers together followed almost the same cycle as the original Seekers, who broke up when Judith Durham wanted to go it on her own."

Asked about going solo, Eve Graham said she wanted to sing to more sophisticated audiences and leave 'Seeker fever' behind her. Commenting on Lyn's solo plans, Eve said:

"If you've seen Lyn in cabaret you'll know she's going to be another Liza Minnelli."

Chaos, but then Lyn triumphs
by Ron Royle

It's the end, say New Seekers
by Roderick Gilchrist

An article reporting the New Seekers' decision to go their separate ways. Lyn Paul, it says, "wants to dance and sing in the Liza Minnelli style". Lyn herself is quoted as saying:

"Although we all love each other very much I think that if we stay together for very much longer it will be bad for us as individuals.
We could go on churning out hits for some time to come but we are all progressive people and we want to stretch ourselves further ... We all feel we've got to make this break for our own good."

The Split
by Ray Fox-Cumming

An interesting article about the break-up of the New Seekers, which included quotes from each member of the group. The article also analysed their chances of future success.

Lyn Paul hit back at press reports of her supposed ambition to be the next Liza Minnelli:

"I'm a bit annoyed that one of the national papers said that I wanted to be like Liza Minnelli because the way it was put people are going to say 'Who the hell does Lyn Paul think she is?' I only said that to try to give the reporter some idea of the kind of act I'm aiming at."

And the Disc prediction for Lyn?

"Lyn looks set to become one of the greats of the British cabaret circuit. She's a natural comedienne and her humour extends to her dancing, which has played a vital part in her solo spots with the New Seekers. Since she's worked as a solo artiste in the past she knows the ropes. Now, with the help of the publicity she's gained through being a member of the group, her future career looks certain to be a success."
