Far From The Originals

Georgie Girl was recorded by the original Seekers which was a very successful Australian folk group in the 60's and early 70's. This "new" group included none of the original members, with lead singer Judith Durham most notably missed. The "new" Seekers is little more than a studio-created commercial patchwork with little of the talent and charm of the original. Since none of their songs is available in iTunes, pick up the Seekers greatest hits collection (including Georgie Girl) at Amazon.

Comparing apples and oranges

What the other reviewers fail to notice is this is THE NEW SEEKERS not the orginal Seekers. The New Seekers established themselves with Look What They've Done To My Song and then went on to have minor hits with great covers of Melanie songs, most notably The Nickel Song and Beautiful People. They also had many international hits. They bounced back in the U.S. with I'd Like To Teach the World to Sing and Pinball Wizard. While other compilations cover their hits, and great secondary songs, more extensively this is a nice introduction to the group.

Groovy!

This band is one of the quintessential groovy bands of the early 70s, with the requisite peaceful anti-establishment message. It sounds extremely dated almost 40 years later but I admit I have a soft spot for this type of music. TNS stand out on my childhood memories in two wayss: I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing was all over the radio & was used in a memorable Christmastime CocaCola commercial, and Look What They've Done To My Song was one of the first records I had ad a kid. If you're nostalgic for multilayered vocal harmonies and harpsichords you'll like this album. No one uses the zither enough these days!
