"Being only familiar with the big hits of the Seekers (Georgy Girl, I'll Never Find Another You, etc.), I wasn't sure what I'd be getting myself into with "Seen In Green." Luckily, I took the chance, and found myself with one of my favorite CD's of all time. Judith Durham's voice has a haunting quality that you never quite get over, and the production on this CD is stunning."

"Some writers have called the 1967 Seen in Green the Seekers's Sgt. Pepper. Comparisons may be invidious, but this album is a tremendous accomplishment. There are songs on the album written by three of the Seekers, Judith Durham, Keith Potger, and Bruce Woodley. My favorite performance on the album is Bruce Woodley's solo in Angeline is Always Friday, a pensive, lyrical song about young love. Years later, Woodley would write a song called Streets of Serenade, commemorating the Seekers's youthful years in their careers. From the songs on this album, you really feel that the Seekers were in love with what they did. The weakest number perhaps is Judith Duham's solo on the Jacques Brel/Rod McKuen number If You Go Away, which was covered by so many artists at the time. Her performance is perfectly good, but her youthfulness acts against the experience of the song's persona. Still, this is a wonderful album by a group that was around for too brief a time."
