The Seekers sign long term deal with Decca

The Seekers sign long term deal with Decca

Veteran Australian folk-pop outfit The Seekers have entered into a new long term partnership with Decca Records.

Decca is part of Universal Music Group.

April 12 marks the release of The Seekers Farewell, the DVD and CD version of its 2013 Golden Jubilee sold-out farewell tour through Australia and the UK.

It marked 50 years since Judith Durham started her new job at an advertising agency in Melbourne and met account executive Athol Guy.

Guy invited Durham to sit in with his mates Keith Potger and Bruce Woodley and perform in a little Melbourne coffee lounge called Treble Clef on December 3, 1962.

The two-hour set recorded in Melbourne, includes Seekers classics as ‘I’ll Never Find Another You’, ‘A World Of Our Own’, ‘The Carnival Is Over’, ‘Morningtown Ride’, ‘Someday One Day’, ‘Walk With Me’, ‘When Will The Good Apples Fall?’, ‘The Olive Tree’, ‘Red Rubber Ball’ and their signature tune ‘Georgy Girl’.

The Seekers say: “Little did we know when we sang together for the first time in 1962 at Treble Clef in Melbourne, that we would be celebrating our 50th anniversary – still performing, still recording and still in the same line-up that unexpectedly took the music world by storm in the mid-1960s.

“Nor could we have known that the music we made in that golden era would endure for five decades and be embraced by generation after generation of music lovers the world over.”
