In his introduction to this medley on the Live at the Royal Albert Hall LP, Marty Kristian notes that Georgy Girl was a hit for the original Seekers and that the New Seekers have added a “few bits and pieces” to it.  The bits and pieces are in fact from The Beatles' hit Ticket to Ride.

& Jim Dale

The original Seekers version was used as the theme tune for a film of the same name.  The song received an Oscar Nomination for the best song in 1966.

TICKET TO RIDEComposed by Lennon/McCartney

One of the Beatles many hits, Ticket To Ride was first released in 1965 and became a no. 1 hit in many countries around the world.

Released as a follow up to Never Ending Song of Love, this song failed to achieve the same kind of chart success.  It has however remained popular, as described by Marty in his introduction: “a happy go lucky number”.  The live version features Eve playing guitar, Marty on banjo and Lyn on washboard and cymbals.
