Who sang the first part?

Post by jerryhawthorne on Sat May 30, 2015 5:53 pm

I have fallen in love with the seekers and their music.  Judith's voice is terrific, try her rendition of 500 miles.  At any point if you watch the attached video, who is the male singer they were listening to on the tape at the very start.  Very nice voice, just can't figure out who.  The song is one of the best written, "There Will Never Be Another You.  Trying to figure out who at the start was the male that was singing it.
Best, Jerry

Jimmy Rodgers, maybe? I always like the girl singer with the Seekers.

Perhaps not "Jimmy" but maybe Jimmie? He doesn't sound quite the same. You guys are great on music. I would like to record everyone that recorded this song. I love it. Judith has a great voice and as indicated earlier "500 miles" really shows off her voice. My old ears have a problem with her highs!

Jerry, I'm not POSITIVE, but I believe I spelled it right. There was a country singer in the 1930's, famous for his railroad and hobo songs named Jimmie Rodgers. The Jimmy Rodgers of the 1950's that made "Kisses Sweeter Than Wine" famous spelled his name with a "y" if I'm not mistaken. I've been wrong before.

If I am not mistaken that is from the made for TV movie the world of the seekers made for Austrailian TV in 68. So I wonder if it is a Austrailian singer.

Could it be Tom Springfield of the group the springfields? After they broke up Dusty Sprngfiled went on her own and he wrote a lot of the seekers music. Here he is doing the song.

Willy, you may be correct on that coming perhaps from a movie. It doesn't sound like Tom Spingfield though. Still confused as usual. Were the lyrics written by Tom?
Thanks and Best, Jerry

Heck WC we still don't know. Country music is really not my forte, at least not the later stuff. Sonny James is the closest I have heard but doesn't sound quite right. I guess I'm mostly a fan of folk music from the 50s and early 60s. The clip from the Seekers does look like something cut for a movie presentation perhaps? Somewhat staged to say the least.
Best, Jerry

Yes, Tom wrote a lot of their songs. I don't have a lot of knowledge of them but I do have a lot of curiousity. Dug around and found some of that stuff.
On a side note to me I thing this is their best song. I think its one of the best from the 60s.

Sonny James maybe??  It looks like he recorded it in 67.

Edit, I just noticed this is the same guy Jerry posted about.

Yes Willy perhaps. I put a link to him but failed to mention him by name in an earlier link here. He sounds the closest I have found so far to the Seeker's recording on the first link. Not as smooth or as deep a voice.

I am like you Jerry , he is the closest I have heard searching for it. But we may never know, they may have had a studio musician sing that .

Jimmie Rodgers mentioned by Wildcat I think was called the yodeling cowboy. I think he died young and worked on the railroad. I remember looking up his stuff a few months back on youtube. He did one called in the jailhouse now that was used in Oh brother where art thou. A really good movie if you have never seen it. My wife has sung with some of the folks on that album for the movie.

The older Jimmie Rodgers.

The younger Jimmie Rodgers.  I stand corrected.  The names ARE spelled the same.
