Their forensic analysis of every song The Seekers recorded in the 50 years between 1963 and 2013 sits comfortably with peeks behind the scenes, never-before-revealed facts, fascinating trivia, and a kaleidoscope of photos and memorabilia ... much of it never seen before. With a good tour guide, you see so much more when you know what it is you're looking at; Chris has approached The Seekers' song list from a musician's perspective, undressing every song the group ever recorded to reveal the vocal and instrumental craft at play. Graham has brought to the coffee table his penchant for fascinating Seekers minutiae, and an archive of memorabilia gathered from all over the world over five decades. The Seekers were the very first group to put Australia on the international music map, and they will be forever known for knocking The Kinks, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones off the top of the UK charts, and The Monkees from the Number One spot on the American charts with their global phenomenon, the Academy Award-nominated song "Georgy Girl" They were clean-cut, clean-living Aussie youths when the rollercoaster began; their music was wholesome and free of gimmicks. The Seekers came, sang and conquered in the Sixties, yet the footprint they left on the international music map is as indelible today as it was half a century ago.If you have a favourite Seekers musical memory, its in this book. If you want to know who played what; or how they got that sound; or who Pierrot and Columbine were ... this is the book for you.
