5.0 out of 5 stars New Seekers - old memories revived 5 Dec 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
There are two sorts of these "Greatest hits" packages; a) a couple of hits and lots of cover versions, b) all the hits and useful album tracks. This is an example of b). All of their big hits, the smaller ones (Nevertheless, Goodbye is Just Another Word) and some great "fillers". The penultimate track, The Greatest Song I've Ever Heard, is the best song on the album. If you like your pop music with great harmonies, arrangements and melodies, then give this a listen!

4.0 out of 5 stars New Seekers...still sounding good 30 July 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a great collection of New Seekers hits, some of the tracks are not well known, others are known because they have been recorded by other groups in the past, and some are known because the seekers recorded them, like Dance Dance Dance, Circles and the famous song that was advertising a famous soft drink ...I'd Likw To Teach The World To Sing. It is a great cd, well worth getting.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as it gets - so far 7 Mar 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A trip back to the 70's 6 April 2012
By Trev-R TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you remember the 70's then The New Seekers are part of that era's musical history with a range of easy to listen to MOR hits. This collection has all of their hits and many songs I had not heard before. For Amazon's current cheap price it is worth buying this CD rather than paying for individual MP3 downloads.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great collection of vocal pop 27 Nov 2004
By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
The New Seekers were a revival of the successful Australian folk outfit The Seekers that achieved major success in the UK and USA with songs like Georgy Girl, although none of the original members of the Seekers sang in the New Seekers. Their hit-making career started in 1971 with a cover of Melanie Safka's What Have They Done To My Song, but the real breakthrough came later that year with the exuberant Never Ending Song Of Love. The original, by Delaney and Bonnie Bramlett, also made the charts but the New Seekers' lively melodic version with its bright vocals was clearly the more commercially appealing. Other tuneful hits here include Beg, Steal or Borrow (A UK Eurovision Song Contest entry), the beautiful Circles and a stunning, genuine rock version of Pete Townsend's Pinball Wizard (See Me Feel Me). They also had hits with You Won't Find Another Fool Like Me and I Get A Little Sentimental Over You but these were tepid ballads in my opinion and I'm still not fond of them. The cover versions of famous 60s and 70s songs are better. And then there's their biggest hit that started out as a famous soft drink commercial: I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing. Erm, not my favorite either, probably because it was overplayed then and I've had enough of it forever. It's just a singalong ballad and does not compare well with their best songs like Never Ending Song Of Love and the stunning Pinball Wizard. This album is a great collection of their hits and best album tracks and I recommend it to all who love bright pop music and the poppier side of 60s and 70s folk.

3.0 out of 5 stars Never been 'cool', but they could sing 17 Sep 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This takes me back to my early teens when it would have been a BAD IDEA to let anyone at school know you even grudgingly admired the New Seekers. I've got to the age now when I'll not worry about admitting to once liking this M.O.R. stuff. As long as you take it for what it is, you have to admit that it was well sung (with a special mention for Eve Graham, I think).
