The New Seekers
Albert Hall

by Michael Wale

Michael Wale reviewed the New Seekers' concert at the Royal Albert Hall.

"An apt juxtaposition of pop fixtures last night had the brilliantly original American singer-songwriter Michael Murphey appearing ... at Ronnie Scott's and the efficiently slick New Seekers charming the Albert Hall thousands from half past eight onwards ...

Michael Murphey writes all his own material, which, of course, the New Seekers do not. Yet they are the perfect purveyors of other people's works ... As it is, they have progressed greatly since I last saw them two years ago supporting Neil Diamond at the Festival Hall. Their version of the Who's Pinball Wizard is the best yet, certainly better than on the album of Tommy."
