Perfect Harmony: THe New Seekers Story

£21.99

Although in their biggest hit The New Seekers sang ‘I’d like to teach the world to sing, in perfect harmony…’ things were far from perfect within the group, as key members tell their story in this first ever book about the legendary New Seekers. With a female/male vocal template not far removed from Abba, the group experienced Eurovision success in the 1970s and rivalled T Rex at the top of the UK charts as Britain experienced New Seeker mania. Whilst the book focuses on their golden era of 1970-73, and that harmonising magic of this second line up, the whole history of the group is covered, including the painful departures of key personnel, as well as the band’s reformation and the brand’s successful renaissance in the new millennium. Who managed the group? What was the original idea behind The New Seekers project? With so many BBC appearances, how much were they a product of the new colour TV era of that time? Which person outside the group earned the right to be called the sixth New Seeker? How popular was the group away from the UK? And what exactly did happen to The New Seekers after their success in the 70s? All these questions are answered, through extensive research and candid interviews with band members. A must read for both the New Seekers fan and the lover of great 70s pop! With foreword and afterword by Paul Layton, the longest serving member of The New Seekers, this book gives a close insight into the band and their dynamics at the height of their fame.
