The Settlers - 1964 [ENG] - Sing Out (Vinyl rip) @320

Not available on CD

Audio samples

I listen to this record regularly for 50 years now! I love it !

The Settlers were initially known as the Birmingham Folk Four, but became known as the Settlers after their first single, "Settle Down". A six-month residency on the BBC television series, Singalong, led to support bookings on tours with, among others, Dusty Springfield, Roy Orbison and The Small Faces. The Settlers have generally been referred to as a folk group. However, like the Seekers, the successful Australian group with which they shared marked similarities, some of their material gravitated towards mainstream pop, which, taking its cue from American singer-songwriters Bob Dylan and Joan Baez and such groups as Peter, Paul and Mary, We Five and The Byrds, readily absorbed folk influences in various ways in the mid-1960s. The Settlers’ melodic style was largely settled before the advent of British folk-rock in the guise of Fairport Convention and Pentangle later in the sixties.

First of all thank you for all of your contributions to Folkyourself. You are a welcome addition to the family. Secondly if you like this type of music there is an excellent blog out there that features much in the same vein from the land down under. The site is I have been following it for years and enjoyed many obscure and at least to me unknown artists doing similar music but from an Australian perspective. I would recommend to all to check it out. Thanks again.
