"This is a severly edited version of the double LP release The New Seekers Live At The Albert Hall. 'Streets of London' sung by Marty Kristian is a bonus song and there is an extra chorus to 'I'm A Nut' by Lyn Paul. The video editing of the dialogue introducing Lyn is not great. Overall not bad value for money if you are a fan of this long defunct group. The best songs from the audio release are however omitted. The price is good, the content is too. Buy it and take a walk down nostalgia lane with a group who really could sing in perfect harmony."
Muddy Sound and dropouts for this ever changing 70s group

The New Seekers had a constantly changing list of members. They are best known in the US for their Coke commercial "I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing" which they remade as a smash hit by leaving out the product name. In the UK they scored with covers of two Melanie songs - "Look What They've Done to My Song Ma" and "Beautiful People". This 1972 show at Albert Hall includes these hits and more. They weren't unlike the Serendipity Singers in the US. The image is not sharp and the sound is really muddy with lot of dropouts.
There's not much footage of this group performing - and they are a completely different group than the Australian outfit The Seekers who recorded "Georgy Girl". This DVD can only be recommended to die-hard New Seekers fans.
