For those unfamiliar with the New Seekers this CD provides a plaform to experience a range of material recorded by the group between 1970 and 1974. Four of the five members are featured vocalists on these tracks, and they include all the hit singles and then some. Top prize however goes to Eve Graham (the brunette)who manages to be lead or featured vocalist on 12 of the 20 tracks. But what of the music? This compilation features 10 UK hits and two USA hits with the remainder being culled from a range of albums. You can hear the New Seekers interpret songs by Melanie Safka, Neil Diamond, James Taylor, , Harry Chapin, Pete Townsend, Roger Cook and Tony Macauley. Ms Graham probably has the most adaptible voice and turns her hand to a variety of songs - the tour de force being Dick Holler's 'The Greatest Song I've Ever Heard', initially hidden on a UK album, but issued as a single in the USA and the Far East. Or listen to her share the spotlight with Lyn Paul on 'A Brand New Song' - probably the most 'should-have been a single' song they recorded. The tracks additional to the obligatory hit singles, give the other group members a chance to shine in the spotlight. The album is polished and really does have a timeless quality about it. Whilst it's great to hear these songs, one can't help but wonder about the tracks the group recorded that never seen the light of day - now that would be a special album, giving us a glimpse of the full range of their talents.
