Fans of The New Seekers will consider this CD a "must-have" for their collections.

Sufficiently so that the listener will be pleasantly surprised at how fresh these tracks sound thirty years down the line.

I love to play this album in my car stereo when riding around with my dog because it's so relaxing and fun.

The CD represents the first time the New Seekers single releases from around the world have been put together on one collection. Surprising considering they sold in excess of 25million records between 1970 and 1974! For a group that have long been under-represented in the CD re-issue stakes, this is a welcome release. Tracks range from the semi religious opening single, Meet My Lord which duplicates the vocal style of the group's predecessors, The Seekers, to the familiar pop of international hits such as Beg, Steal or Borrow, Never Ending Song of Love and You Won't Find Another Fool Loke Me, to the rockier Who cover of Pinball Wizard, to the sing-along I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing, Circle, Nickel Song and their opening hit, Look What They've Done To My Song Ma. One constant throughout is the crystal lead vocals, first class production, intricate vocal harmonies and the variety of songs and styles. Sufficiently so that the listener will be pleasantly surprised at how fresh these tracks sound thirty years down the line. Known primarily as a singles and performing act this set from the Netherlands does almost full justice to the phenomena that was the New Seekers. Completists will be upset that the version of Circle is re-edited from the original, and the set ommits their 1973 US and Far Eastern success, The Greatest Song I've Ever Heard. That aside this is a welcome addition to anyone with a liking for well-written, well-performed pop. It's just a shame that no such comprehensive compilation or CD-reissues have been available in their two biggest territories - the UK and the USA.

AT LAST A COMPREHENSIVE AND WELL PACKAGED COLLECTION FROM THE UKS TOP HARMONY GROUP OF THE SEVENTIES.THIS IS A ' MUST OWN ' FOR ALL NEW SEEKERS FANS AND AN EXCELLENT BUY FOR ALL LOVERS OF WELL CRAFTED FINE TUNES AND RICH VOCALS.
MOST WILL BE FAMILIAR WITH THE HUGE CHART SUCCESS OF I'D LIKE TO TEACH THE WORLD TO SING,NEVER ENDING SONG OF LOVE,YOU WON'T FIND ANOTHER FOOL LIKE ME,CIRCLES AND THE UK'S 1972 EUROVISION ENTRY JUST PIPPED AT THE POST, BEG STEAL OR BORROW.HOWEVER THERE ARE ALSO TRACKS TO BE FOUND WHICH ARE PERHAPS NOT SO WELL KNOWN BUT ARE AS REPRESENTATIVE OF THE GROUP AS THEIR BIGGER HITS.WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO MY SONG MA( A SUCCESS IN THE STATES ),PINBALL WIZARD,I GET A LITTLE SENTIMENTAL OVER YOU AND NEVERTHELESS DEMONSTRATE THE VAST VOCAL RANGE AND TALENTS OF THIS FINE GROUP.EVE GRAHAM'S SUPERB VOCALS TAKE LEAD ON THE MAJORITY OF THE TRACKS,ASSISTED BY LYN PAUL'S WONDERFUL HARMONISING,THOUGH LYN COMES INTO HER OWN ON SOME OF THE LATTER TRACKS.PETER DOYLE AS ALWAYS DISPLAYS HIS VERSATILE RANGE BOTH ON LEAD AND HARMONY AS DO MARTY KRISTIAN, PAUL LAYTON AND REPLACING PETER DOYLE FROM 1973 PETER OLIVER.A WONDERFUL COLLECTION OF 22 GEMS FOR ALL.

14 of 17 people found the following review helpful By Peter Durward Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on September 12, 2004
Format: Audio CD
The New Seekers, like many groups, endured line-up changes through the years but during their most successful years (1970 to 1974, the period covered by this compilation), there was only one change. The line-up in 1970 was Marty Kristian, Eve Graham, Paul Layton, Lyn Paul and Peter Doyle. Peter Oliver replaced Peter Doyle in 1973.

Their name is misleading as the original Seekers had their roots in traditional folk music while the New Seekers were a simple pop group. Their earliest recordings included three songs written by Melanie, of which one (What have they done to my song Ma) provided them with a top twenty USA hit and a minor UK hit. The other two (Beautiful people, Nickel song) were minor American hits. Beautiful people was originally the B-side to When there's no love left, but the public forced the record to be flipped.

Their UK breakthrough came with Never ending song of love, which made number two in the UK. This was followed by the song for which they are best remembered, I'd like to teach the world to sing, which was adapted from an advertising jingle. It topped the UK charts and made the American top ten. Their subsequent singles met with limited success in America, but they had four other UK top five hits, these being Beg steal or borrow, Circles, You won't find another fool like me (their second and last UK number one) and I get a little sentimental over you. In between those hits, they had lesser UK hits with Come softly to me, Pinball wizard / See me feel me, Nevertheless and Goodbye is just another word.

All of these songs can be found on this excellent compilation. They switched record labels and had three further minor UK hits, not included here, these being It's so nice (to have you home), I wanna go back and Anthem (one day in every week).

The New Seekers were one of the strongest groups to emerge from the late 1960s as a pop music band with relatively "light music" that still had infectiously catchy melodies and well written vocals. They conquered continents with their chart busting hits and this CD of their singles will thrill you without doubt!

The CD proves that The New Seekers could perform a wide variety of songs mostly within the arena of "light music" and still move their audiences with memorable harmonizing and mountains of energy and spirit. If you like songs with religious references, check out their first really big hit entitled "Meet My Lord;" this is the first track on this CD. This theme is also evident in the beautiful "When There's No Love Left," too.

Of course, love ballads celebrating the joy of love pepper this album of their hits. "Good Old-Fashioned Music" deals with tight family bonding as a family gathers together on a Saturday night to play music; this is their time to celebrate their love for each other. "I Get A Little Sentimental Over You" lets The New Seekers sings about a love that doesn't die even though the years pass and circumstances in life change. "Never Ending Song Of Love" also expresses the joy of finding your own one true love without whom life just couldn't be the same. In addition, The New Seekers do a great rendition of "Come Softly To Me;" and "Nevertheless (I'm In Love With You)" is very romantic. Excellent!

For those of us who enjoy numbers that have more of a rock and roll flavor to them, look on this CD for their awesome cover of Pete Townsend's "Pinball Wizard/See Me Feel Me" from the rock opera Tommy; and "We've Got To Do It Now" has an aggressive beat that rocks great without the slightest flaw.
