Amazing song! This was the very first 45 I bought with my OWN money when the song first came out. I was just a wee lad.

The lyrics in the movie (over both the opening and closing) differ in several ways from the single version. I imagine there must have been another recording session to produce the single eventually released.

The Seekers were Judith Durham and three other Australians whose sound and spirit has never been duplicated. They symbolize the optimism of '60's folk music.
