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.Clarke - Pittsburgh, Pa
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.Mark - Lancaster, Oh
