His place was taken by Judith Durham, an established traditional jazz singer who added a distinctive female lead voice. For I know I'll never find another you There is always someone For each of us, they say And you'll be my someone Forever and a day I could search the whole world over Until my life is through But I know I'll never find another you It's a long, long journey So stay by my side When I walk through the storm You'll be my guide, be my guide [47] "The Seekers' Golden Jubilee Tour" kicked off 2013 in May, celebrating fifty years since the group had formed in December 1962. The performance featured many of the Seekers' hits as well as other songs that had influenced them over the years. [5][6] In the late 1950s, Potger led The Trinamics, a rock 'n' roll group, Guy led the Ramblers and, with Woodley, they decided to form a doo-wop music group, the Escorts. Following the Seekers' split, Durham pursued a solo career. [29] The Seekers were accompanied during their 20-minute set by the Australian Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Hector Crawford. [3] Ray left the group to get married. [37] That month they supported Rieu on the rescheduled Australian tour. The performance closed with a performance of "I Am Australian", which Guy introduced as a song that was pertinent given "what was happening around the world" at the time. It consists of a 1966 television documentary on the Seekers and a 1967 special. [8][9], The Seekers were offered a twelve-month position as on-board entertainment on the Sitmar Line passenger cruise ship Fairsky in March 1964. The Seekers reunited late in 1992, with the classic line-up of Durham, Guy, Potger and Woodley. She released a Christmas album called For Christmas with Love (recorded in Hollywood, California) and later signed with A&M Records, releasing more albums including Gift of Song and Climb Ev'ry Mountain. [3] Durham's connections with W&G Records led to the group's later signing a recording contract with the label. [3][4] Guy, Potger and Woodley had all attended Melbourne Boys High School in Victoria.
