Stars On 45RPM : The Seekers

The Seekers
Here are two releases from the 1960s by the Australian folk-pop group The Seekers of which I found on Saturday. Both appear to be in their original Columbia Records paper sleeves with advert artwork on the rear for Morphy Richards Hair Dryers and shampoo - evidently a lot of girls washing their hair in the 60s!
Columbia DB8273
The Seekers: When Will The Good Apples Fall / Myra , Columbia DB8273, 1967
When Will The Good Apples Fall was the story of a rich mans daughter who cannot find true love and sung with beautiful conviction by Judith Durham reached Number 11 in the UK charts in 1967. The release was coupled with the uplifting folk song Myra.
Columbia DB7532
The Seekers: A World Of Our Own / Sinner Man, Columbia DB7532, 1965
Having recently topped the UK charts with Tom Springfield's  I'll Never Find Another You, The Seekers followed the hit up with another Springfield composition A World Of Our Own. This cosy upbeat song featured all The Seekers hallmarks including Judith Durham's beautiful vocal, close harmonising and Athol Guy's steady double bass line. A World Of Our Own coupled with Sinner Man reached No.3 in the UK chart.
