Title - 'Together / Farewell Album'
Artist - The New Seekers

For those not in the know, The New Seekers are a British-based pop group, formed in 1969 by Keith Potger after the break-up of his group, the Seekers.

The idea was that the New Seekers would appeal to the same market as the original Seekers, but their music had rock as well as folk influences.

They achieved worldwide success in the early 1970s with hits including "I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing", "You Won't Find Another Fool Like Me" and "Beg, Steal or Borrow".

Releasing on April 13th, 2018 via Cherry Red Records (UK), their pair of 1974 albums, Together / Farewell Album have both now been digitally remastered into a two CD set.

Containing a wonderful pair of albums from the '70s hitmakers, this is also the very first time on CD for both of them.

Together hit #12 in the UK National Chart in March 1974 (and includes the #1 single 'You Won't Find Another Fool Like Me' (Ireland #1, Australia #5) and the #5 hit 'I Get A Little Sentimental Over You' (Ireland #9, Australia #12).

This latter song, featuring Paul on lead vocals, became a success by peaking at No.5 in the UK chart. Indeed, to coincide with their split, the group performed a farewell tour. The final show was performed in May 1974 and drew in a massive audience.

As noted, the album also contained their recent hit, but none of the other 1973 releases, which had not featured on any studio album. Although it did include an American single 'The Greatest Song I've Ever Heard', which had been released several months earlier while Doyle was still with the group.

Farewell Album was, as the title suggests, the final album from the original period of the band, released in September 1974. Having disbanded before it was released, they had managed to record a number of songs for Polydor before, which the label used here.

Indeed, two of the twelve tracks had been earlier recordings however, with one single being released from the album, called "Sing Hallelujah." The single stalled outside the official top 50 in the UK at No.65, and as the album received no promotion from the group, it similarly failed to chart.

Listening to it again today, and noticing that 10 of the 12 tracks feature female leads, the album is still rather beautiful, overall soothing in tone to listen too, as one would have expected. A while member Marty Kristian features on lead for just two of the songs, the lack of male vocal input - had the album been marketed correctly at the time - wouldn't have stopped it from being another chart hit for them; of that I'm sure.

A total of eight bonus tracks have been added across the two albums including ultra-rare tracks by the spin off Peter Paul & Marty incarnation as well as two from late vocalist Peter Doyle, all making their debut on CD here.

Rare 45's such as 'We've Got To Do It Now' and 'Song For You And Me' have also been included and the booklet contains detailed liner notes by the group's official webmaster Nic Culverwell, alongside pictures of all associated sleeves from around the globe.
