Judith Durham of The Seekers passed away last month on August 5th. She was 79. I wanted to post a little tribute.
The Seekers were a hugely popular Australian folk/pop group from the mid-1960s. They had success in the US but not to the degree they had in the rest of the world.
The Seekers’ first hit single, I’ll Never Find Another You, was recorded at Abbey Road studios in London in the Fall of 1964. This video, I believe, was produced in 1968.
“In December 1966 they issued “Georgy Girl“, which became their highest charting American hit when it reached No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 1 on the Cashbox Top 100 in February 1967.” – Wikipedia
Here they are playing Georgy Girl in a free concert in their home town.
Back in 1967, when The Seekers returned home to Australia for a visit, little did they know that their free concert at the Myer Music Bowl in their home town of Melbourne would break attendance records for the Southern hemisphere and TV ratings records for Australia!
