Background: Released in 1966, Come the Day (released as Georgy Girl in the United States) was the fifth album by the Seekers.
It was on this album that all of the Seekers’ varied attributes — including Judith Durham’s powerful vocals, the increasingly virtuoso-level playing (especially on the acoustic 12-string) and singing of Bruce Woodley, Athol Guy, and Keith Potger, and Woodley’s burgeoning songwriting talent — kicked in at their peak at the same time. The album opens with the title track, a Woodley original that’s one of the best folk-style recordings to come out of the British Invasion and also one of the Seekers’ (and Durham’s) greatest performances, hers and the others’ voices, coupled with their acoustic guitars, evoking the sound of bells chiming. … On the American side of the Atlantic, the Tom Springfield/Jim Dale-authored movie song “Georgy Girl” overpowered a lot of these great moments and became the title track for the Capitol Records issue of the album.
