The Seekers Multimedia Gallery 4 - 70s & 80s
In 1975, the 'Boys' - Athol, Bruce and Keith, got together with a singer of Dutch origin, Louisa Wisselling, to record two albums and several singles. One of these singles was the catchy 'Love isn't Love until you give it away', which is the featured soundclip. The video clip is a rare TV appeareance by the 70's incarnation of the group, singing their #1 Australian single 'The Sparrow Song'.
With members of the group involved in the advertising business, some of the 70's releases took the form of Jingles, such as these for Trans Tours and Nimble (soundclips).
The video clip below features the group in country mode with 'Break these Chains', featuring Bruce Woodley on lead vocals. In 1980, Keith Potger formed another group, although he was the only original member of these 'Seekers'. The Album which resulted also had a country feel to it, as can be heard on the soundclip of 'Let Your Love Flow'
The 'Boys' were back in 1988, this time teaming up with established Australian singer Julie Anthony for the Album 'Live On'. From this album came 'How Can A Love So Wrong Be So Right?' and 'Streets of Serenade ', a song with memorable lyrics reminiscing about The Seekers' time spent in London in the 60's. Both songs were written by Bruce.
In 1989, the group returned
to the Myer Music Bowl in Melbourne to perform in a Christmas concert.
The song 'Bright Star' was written for the occasion by Bruce
Woodley. In 1990, Julie left to have a baby and Karen
Knowles joined The Seekers. A single was made and sold at concerts in cassette
form. One of the songs featured was the studio version ofBright
Also from this line-up of the group came a very nice version of 'Kumbaya'
