New Seekers Special

A "sampler" cassette priced 99p in the UK and just under $2.50 in the States. The release of this cassette was announced in Billboard magazine on 19th August 1972: "This Autumn will also see a particularly strong release of cassette product from Polydor and the introduction of a special cassette promotion centered on a unique New Seekers' tape called New Seekers Special... None of the 10 tracks included on the tape - which will be released next month on cassette only - are now available on record; in fact seven of the items have never been issued before in any form. Among the titles are the three Eurovision Song Contest runners-up to Beg, Steal Or Borrow." (Billboard, Vol. 84, No. 34, page 27)

Farewell New Seekers from Mirabelle Readers

A 6-track flexi disc given free with the magazine Mirabelle when the New Seekers disbanded in 1974. The disc features a message from each member of the group followed by an excerpt from a song featuring that member singing the lead vocal.

Lyn says "Thank you Mirabelle readers and all the fans for such fantastic support since we started out as a group. You've been the greatest hits with us and no-one could ask for more." Her diction is perfect and sounds more natural than the others. Some of the messages sound as if they were being read from a script, Lyn's doesn't.

On the label it says: "All from the LP Together except Ride A Horse." It also says: "Our special thanks to the New Seekers, Nicky Graham who compiled this exclusive disc, and to Polydor".

Tracks: Cryin' Time (Marty) | The Greatest Song I've Ever Heard (Eve) | Ride A Horse (Paul) | Brother Love's Travelling Salvation Show (Peter Oliver) | Here, There And Everywhere (Lyn) | We'll Meet Again (All)

Live In Moscow

Live In Moscow

A live perfomance from 1981 recorded at the State Central Concert Hall, Moscow, with Mick Flinn standing in for an absent Marty Kristian, although Marty does appear on the album sleeve.

The '80s incarnation of the New Seekers (featuring Donna Jones and Kathy Ann Rae) performed some of the songs that had been hits for the '70s line-up (featuring Eve Graham and Lyn Paul). Never Ending Song Of Love, I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing and Pinball Wizard / See Me, Feel Me were all performed in full. Other hits such as What Have They Done To My Song, Ma, You Won't Find Another Fool Like Me, Beg, Steal Or Borrow, I Get A Little Sentimental Over You and Good Old Fashioned Music were edited and combined in a Hits Medley.

The group also covered songs by other artists, notably the Hollies and the Four Tops. Can't Let Go (strictly speaking it should be titled I Can't Let Go) was originally an international hit for the Hollies in 1966, while Something About You was a US hit for the Four Tops in 1965. Coincidentally this song had also been covered by the young Peter Doyle before he joined the New Seekers.

The tribute to John Lennon, a medley of Imagine and Give Peace A Chance, was added to the New Seekers' stage act following Lennon's murder in New York on 8th December 1980. To judge from the applause, it clearly struck a chord with the Moscow audience.

Some of the song titles suffer a little in translation: Good Feelings will be more familiar to New Seekers' fans as Good Feelin' (Something's Gonna Happen Tonight); I Would Like To Jump / Look At Me is actually Pinball Wizard / See Me, Feel Me; the Close Medley is I Used To Be So Lost / Then Came You / We've Got Love On Our Side; Farewell is the Russian song Ishai.

Lyn Paul, Eve Graham and Peter Doyle were no longer members of the New Seekers when this album was recorded.

Side 1: Good Feelings | Never Ending Song Of Love | Can't Let Go | Tribute to John Lennon: Imagine / Give Peace A Chance | The Seeker | I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing

Side 2: Something About You | I Would Like To Jump / Look At Me | Music Medley: Sing Me / I Believe In Music / I Got The Music In Me / Listen To The Music / Dance To The Music / Money Makes The World Go Around / Music | Close Medley | Farewell

Tell Me

Tell Me was an album released in the USSR in 1982. It included a couple of older tracks recorded by the New Seekers before Eve Graham and Danny Finn had left the group: A Little More Love, featuring Eve Graham on lead vocal, and Love Of My Life, a favourite from the New Seekers' live shows, featureing Danny Finn on lead vocal.

The version of Tell Me on this album is not the version released as a single on EMI. This track, along with seven others, are unique to the album: Aviemore, Déjà Vu, Head Over Heels, A Little More Love, Love Of My Life, Still In Love With You and Ulysses' Siren.

Lyn Paul does not feature on any of the tracks on this album.
