    Sad to read this. My parents were big fans of the Seekers so they form some of my earliest memories of music.

    Oh that's really sad. I remember my parents having a couple of their albums, and as an 8-year old I often played them on my first little record player. I completely fell in love with the beautiful woman on the album cover.

    RIP Judith.

    RIP Judith. You had a fabulous voice.

    This is a bit spooky for me to see this, as I flew to Cyprus on holiday on Wednesday afternoon. During the flight, I was playing bits of various 'Best of' compilations, one of which was the Seekers. I recalled while playing them that Judith had many health issues in the past, and I wondered if she was still alive. Seems I now have the answer.

    Fantastic range on this:

    As a long haired youth in the 70s I could not let it be known that I loved both Judith Durham & Karen Carpenters voices on most stuff that would have been called MOR.

    Sad news but she had a good innings & will be remembered by a lot of people throughout the world.

    RIP Judith, I loved her vocals and their harmony singing, they were still sounding good on their
    farewell tour in 2013.

    I was long haired in the 70s too, but never hid my love for The Carpenters! Saw them twice in the week that they played the Palladium in, I think, 1976.

    What a voice! Lovely harmonies too. One of my mother's best albums that I played often.

    As a band should have been much bigger.

    RIP Judith

    They were eclipsed by the new seekers and all that coca cola shite.
