If you have already purchased The New Seekers 'Songbook' compilation then you will have a number of the tracks included on this superb 2 LP on 1 cd set featuring two of the group's earlier US albums from the '70s.

That said,this is still great value for money at under a tenner and features several of the group's biggest hits such as 'Beg Steal or Borrow', 'Look What They've Done To My Song Ma' and 'Circles'.

However, it's the combination of some of the group's best recordings and the inclusion of those that have found their way onto disc for the first time that make this truly special for any Seekers fan.

Stand out tracks include those written by group members Marty Kristian and Peter Doyle. The rocky 'Mystic Queen' and country flavoured 'Cincinnati' contrasting perfectly with the stripped down simplicity of 'I Can Say You're Beautiful' show just how versatile this quintet really were.

Other highlights include blonde Lyn Paul's recording of Paul Williams' 'Perfect Love' and the gentle yet understated 'I'll Be Home'.

Here's hoping it won't be too long before some of the group's other albums such as 'Farewell Album' and 'Now' are issued on cd.

In the meantime it's worth checking out Lyn's excellent but long over due solo recording, 'Late Night' and Eve Graham's Christmas compilation ' Til The Season Come Round Again' - both available on amazon.

Well, we now have three original albums on CD - even if these are the US versions. Elektra must look after their master tapes; as "We'd Like To Teach The World To Sing" sounded as good as these albums do. Up until now the "Songbook" had sounded to my ears the best - but after back to back listens to the tracks that appear on these re-issues and on "Songbook", these come out on top. If only Polydor had cared for, or even kept (!!?) their masters in the same condition, we could have had all the original albums on CD by now. For a band who sold as well as they did, the New Seekers have been extremely poorly represented on CD. The aforementioned "Songbook" amd even the Readers Digest compilations were excellent; but not the same as having the original albums intact. "Never Ending Song Of Love" and "Circles" have never sounded better; the same with, in my humble opinion, Eve Graham's best vocal: "Allright My Love" which I think was a far better song than any single she sang lead on. The only let down for me as a long-term fan of Lyn Paul is "A Perfect Love" - a stunning song which Lyn re-recorded her vocals for on the "Farewell Album". The difference in the two recordings - three years apart - show how her voice got even better as she grew in confidence. She sings it beautifully here; but her voice is richer on the 1974 version. I also am pleased to have a decent copy of "Mystic Queen" a vastly underrated song, which the group sing perfectly and show just how 'in perfect harmony' they were; in fact - the songs composed by Marty Kristian and Peter Doyle are among the standout tracks. Let's hope we soon get the UK version of "Circles" plus "Now"; "The Farewell Album" and "Live At The Albert Hall" and we'll almost be done for the output of the most successful line-up of the group. Somewhere, someone in Polydor UK has to find the masters - look harder!!
All in all, a great job has been done with this release - keep 'em coming.

This import from the USA is the original yet slight different to the UK titles when they were release in 1971/1972 respectively. Beautiful People is the US title of the UK LP Never Ending Song Of Love.

This is a first time 'complete' release on CD. Though most of the tracks have been on various compilations, the brilliant track called 'Cincinati' and also 'Eighteen carot friend' are very hard to find tracks.

Like all the New Seekers songs from the 1970-74 period, the arrangements/vocals are a pleasure to listen to as well as some classic stand outs.

The sound quality have been beautifully remastered. The inside sleeve also shows the original back covers of each album.

Let's hope the classic 2LP set 'Live at the Royal Albert Hall' is not too long coming to CD.

I was just 12 when i bought the single circles on the old 7 inch vynal, and that was the start of a love affair with this group.
This is a fantastic double album release beautiful people/ circles capturers the group at the hight of there commercial powers,included here are 5 top singles,while blackberrway and your song are not bab covers but the originals of course are better.
I also like mystic queen ,i did not know that this was on the circles album, it was the b side of the circles record.
Mystic queen demonstates that the seekers could rock ,as well as producing the more well known eurovision songs,and of course the famous teach the world to sing for coke a cola i remember the tv add for this.
Of course if you have one of the many greatest hits compilations you will already have many of the songs,but some sound like remixes and eddits,this is the best digital remaster of two great albums, and the songs are the original recordings.
I recomened this cd to eneybody who loves the sound of this seventies soft rock group . put it on your cd player and you are transported back to a decade when pop music sounded a hell of a lot better than some of todays so called music.
