This track is credited purely to Brian Peacock on the Contour release but Peter Doyle's name appears on the label of the Come Softly to Me Album.  New Zealander Brian Peacock travelled to Australia with his band the Librettos in the 60s where they would work the same gigs as Peter and sometimes provided the backing to his solo act.  Peacock also provided the New Seekers with a few other songs.

This is a beautiful duet by Eve Graham and Peter Doyle and probably the fans most quoted choice as the album track which should have been released as a single.  Cilla Black and Emmylou Harris are amongst other artists who have recorded this song.

Lead Vocals: Peter Doyle

Many songs have been written around the names of American towns and cities. This is Peter Doyle's contribution.  More a song of homesickness than celebration this was one of the New Seekers' earliest releases to have been composed by Peter who also sings the lead on the song.

Lead Vocals: Eve Graham & Peter Doyle
Harry Chapin originally wrote Circle for his brother Tom's children's show, Make a Wish.  The story goes that he wrote it at 2am in a Brooklyn diner.  Harry wasn't keen on the New Seekers' version which was renamed Circles.  The record buying public had a different view and Circles became one of the group's biggest hits.  The lead is shared by Eve Graham and Peter Doyle and at least 3 different recordings are used on various album and CD releases.
