1st Released July 1972


Although deep and meaningful lyrics were not generally associated with the New Seekers image, many of the groups' own compositions showed a different side.  Peter's Unwithered Rose, underlined this very well and was repeatedly used as a B side on the groups' singles.

WAKE UP WITH ME

PETER DOYLE

Composer Peter Doyle

1st Released 4th June 1980
Single
B side to Do You Wanna Make Love?
Limelight BULB 1

An incredible contrast to it's A side, Wake Up With Me  was very much a track of the punk era - Peter may have started his recording career in the 1950's but this song proved he was still very much in tune with the contemporary sound of the 1980's.

Peter's First Album

Watcha Gonna Do About It? was a hit for Doris Troy, who penned this and other hits under her real name Doris Payne along with Greg Carroll.  A number of their songs, including this, were covered by the Hollies. It was also recorded by Cilla Black in 1965 and was the debut single for Rev Black and the Rockin' Vicars in 1967.  Not to be confused with the song, with a variation of spelling: Whatcha Gonna Do About it? which was released by the Small Faces in 1965 and was the B side to Kicks, the last single released by the New Zealand group the Librettos before they disbanded in August 1966.
