Retro Vinyl: Georgy Girl by The Seekers (Columbia, 1966)

Columbia DB8134
Reaching Number 3 in the UK charts and Number 1 in America, The Seekers hit Georgy Girl (taken from the film of the same name) was penned by Tom Springfield and Jim Dale.

The Seekers gained a gold record status for the release, the group were nominated for best song at the 1966 Academy awards, of which they were unable to attend due to a prior commitment to the pantomime Humpty Dumpty at Bristol Hippodrome!

Mitzi Gaynor stepped in to perform the song at the Academy awards with both Tom Springfield and Jim Dale in the audience.

The Seekers will visit England later this month for their 50th anniversary farewell tour and no doubt Georgy Girl will be heard once again!
