Live On is the tenth studio album from The Seekers. The album is the only Seekers' album to feature the vocals of Australian singer, Julie Anthony. In October 1988, The Seekers re-formed and sang "The Carnival is Over" to close the World Expo 88 in Brisbane.

But this set works: one listen fully justifies it on musical terms; the cost is only a little higher than comparable five-disc sets, and the unique range of material makes it a bargain. The set is broken up into five volumes, the first (1963-1964) covering the group's early history: their original 12-song demo, coupled with parts of their debut Australian album, Introducing the Seekers, and their first album for England's World Record Club.

The Seekers is the seventh studio album by Australian group the Seekers. The album was released in May 1975. Louisa Wisseling provided the vocals. It was the first The Seekers' album not to feature the vocals of Judith Durham. The lead single "Sparrow Song" was released in May 1975, peaking at number 7 on the Kent Music Report. A second single "Reunion" was released in November 1975 and peaked at number 83.

The Seekers are an Australian folk-influenced pop quartet, originally formed in Melbourne in 1962. They were the first Australian pop music group to achieve major chart and sales success in the United Kingdom and the United States. They were popular during the 1960s with their best-known configuration as: Judith Durham on vocals, piano, and tambourine; Athol Guy on double bass and vocals; Keith Potger on twelve-string guitar, banjo, and vocals; and Bruce Woodley on guitar, mandolin, banjo, and vocals.
