General Notes: This album is curious. In the UK and US it was released as "The Seekers: A World of our Own", while this track (the group's second hit) was omitted on the Australian press of the album. The Seekers' first big hit, I'll Never Find Another You, never found its way onto an album. In Australia, this album was released soley as The Seekers, with A World of Our Own being replaced with We Shall Not Be Moved. The album includes a mix of trad jazz/blues, some more Dylan and Bruce Woodley launches himself as a composer. Track notes are provided for all the songs, except for the first song on side one - each, regardless of the origins of the album, rate only a mere mention and nothing else.
Liner Notes: "When The Seekers asked me to write some notes for the LP, I said I'd be very glad to, but when I sat down to do it, I couldn't think of any way of starting off, apart from saying the usual thing about what nice people they are, and what a pleasure they are to work with. So I'll just say what nice people they (sic) (are - included on UK press) and what a pleasure they are to work with, because it's true. Anyway, here are some notes I wrote about this very talented foursome and the songs they sing on this LP.
JUDITH DURHAM: The girl with the fine blues-tinged voice once sang with a trad.band back in Australia and plays swinging ratime piano. Has a sunny and generous nature but can be dangerous with a tambourine.
BRUCE WOODLEY: Has a grave expression which hides a goonish sense of humour. Apart from playing guitar and banjo, he sings quite a few solos on this LP, and the group also feature two of his compositions.
KEITH POTGER: The one with the grin. Excels on 12-string guitar, in which he specialises, but can also be heard on mandolin here and there. Sings lead voice on "This Land".
ATHOL GUY: Facially, has been compared to Peter Sellers, Groucho Marx, Sophia Loren, etc. Plays the bass and has proved himself an all-round entertainer by playing an entire number without his glasses.
