Melodic/Harmony/Folk/Rock is my attempt to describe their music, which had it's roots firmly in 1950s and early 1960s American Rock and Pop.
The ringing guitar sounds are similar to some of The Beatles output, but especially The Byrds, whom The Searchers predated by 2 years.
Some of the tracks, like Sweets For My Sweet and Needles And Pins are very well known by 1960s fans, but others are also top notch.
For example from disc 1, Since You Broke My Heart, All My Sorrows and Sugar And Spice.
On disc 2 look out for I Pretend I'm With You, Someday We're Gonna Love Again and What Have They Done To The Rain?
On disc 3 there's Take Me For What I/m Worth, Take It Or Leave It and Four Strong Winds.
Clearly it's too much to listen to all in one go, but as an overview it's a truly excellent collection.
