I still enjoy listening to all of their lovely songs.
Felix Reyes
This is a very good CD which includes many wonderful songs recorded by the Seekers, one of the best singing groups ever.

If the "Future Road" cd ever gets released again, it is a MUST BUY for any Seekers fan.

MARCH 2013 CLARIFICATION: My review, which I posted on Amazon in March 2004, is of the single disc titled The Ultimate Collection, which was released here in the United States in late 2003. The artist is listed on the booklet's front cover and on the insert's spine as The Seekers featuring Judith Durham (in gold letters with black edging). The cover, which is basically white, shows black-and-white head shots of (left to right) Keith, Athol, Bruce, and Judith. The disc contains 26 tracks they themselves chose. Track 1 is "Come The Day" and track 26 is their superb cover of the Bee Gees' "Massachusetts." It also includes "The Shores Of Avalon" and "I Am Australian." (The label is listed as EMI Music Australia; its catalogue number is listed on the spine as 7243 594491 2 8.) My review is not -- I repeat, NOT -- of the 2-disc compilation (totaling 50 tracks) released in 2008 that also is titled The Ultimate Collection. I have never heard that release. I am not responsible for my review being posted for both compilations, yet I am truly sorry for any confusion its dual appearance may have caused. I still stand by what I said about the 26-track 'Ultimate' compilation nine years ago, which here follows intact:

My first reaction to learning about this CD was mixed: "What -- ANOTHER Seekers anthology?" and "Hmmmmm . . . maybe this is the one I really, REALLY need."

So when I opened up the jewel case and started reading the liner notes, I had a good laugh. The writer, journalist Graham Simpson, obviously anticipated my mild skepticism. He starts out with, "Now it's not as if the world has been starved for choice when it comes to collections of Seekers tracks. So why another one?"

Simpson then proceeds to answer his own question.

Format: Audio CD
The Seekers were an Australian group that achieved massive success in both the UK and the USA in the middle sixties with their wonderful blend of soaring harmonies and acoustic but full-bodied instrumentation. This 2-disc set contains 50 of their greatest hits and most popular album tracks.

Written by Paul Simon, the song Someday One Day was one of the Seekers' very first commercial successes in Britain. Their unique folk sound is characterized by a strong female vocal and gripping acoustic blend, including prominent 12-string guitar.

I'll Never Find Another You was a number one in Britain and also reached the top 5 in the USA. World Of Our Own, Georgy Girl and Morningtown Ride likewise did well on both sides of the Atlantic, while my favourite, the soulful Carnival Is Over, was another UK number one.

Besides their familiar hits, this collection also includes great covers of both traditional and original 1960s compositions like Blowin' In The Wind, We Shall Not Be Moved, Whisky In The Jar (remember Thin Lizzy's later interpretation?), Danny Boy, The Last Thing On My Mind and Kumbaya.

Although considered a folk band, their sound has a very distinctive pop edge, beautiful tunes and exquisite vocals. They were not at all like Steeleye Span or Fairport Convention, in the sense that they had more in common with the Mersey sound and didn't use any of that Olde English imagery.

The next decade The New Seekers sought to revive the success of The Seekers, but in my opinion they never achieved a sound as timeless and engaging as the originals. This extensive compilation album will appeal to all who love melodic songs, exceptional vocals and rousing acoustic instrumentation.

Everyone has their own taste in music and while I consider my own pretty eclectic, I cannot stand the screeching of rock and roll and I detest rap. The Seekers fill my needs wonderfully. I loved the folk music of the 60's and they are as good as any group of that or any other era. The collection is superb...in fact, the only disparaging thing I can think of to relate is that there aren't enough songs on just 2 CD's to assuage me.

I'm a huge Seekers fan. I have three other Seekers CD's & they sound good. As soon as I pressed "play," I was very UNpleasantly surprised. Since I was playing it in my car's CD player with the windows open, I thought traffic noise from outside the car was causing interference so I rolled up the windows. It didn't help a bit; in fact, it made the sound WORSE because it eliminated the "cover-up" noises which allowed me to hear just how awful this recording was. The sound has a terrible shrill echo - as if the entire recording studio was in a tin box. I then tried turning down the treble which also didn't help; it only made the sound muffled. I tried playing it on my pricey home stereo but I could only endure it for a few seconds; a decent sound system brings out the worst in a recording, and this recording has quite a bit of the worst to bring out. To spoil such a pricelessly-beautiful voice as Judith Durham's should be a CRIME!! Much better choices are:

1. "The Seekers All Bound For Morningtown - Their EMI Recordings 1964-1968"

2. "The Very Best of the Seekers"

Both have very good sound quality.

If you buy this version for around $2.50 AU extra, they throw in a fantastic DVD of a beautiful technicolor motion picture bio the Seekers made when they returned triumphantly to Oz at their peak.

It has these songs:

Disk 2

1. This Train [Dvd]

2. Study War No More (Down By The Riverside) [Dvd]

3. Just A Closer Walk With Thee [Dvd]

4. Walk Don't Run [Dvd]

5. When The Stars Begin To Fall [Dvd]

6. With My Swag All On My Shoulder [Dvd]

7. I'll Never Find Another You [Dvd]

8. The Lord's Prayer [Dvd]

9. Morningtown Ride [Dvd]

10. Music Of The World A' Turnin' [Dvd]

11. Angeline Is Always Friday [Dvd]

12. Lemon Tree [Dvd]

13. A World Of Our Own [Dvd]

14. Colours Of My Life [Dvd]

15. When Will The Good Apples Fall [Dvd]

16. The Carnival Is Over [Dvd]

17. Georgy Girl [Dvd]

Enjoy

Rob from Oz :-)
