Seatrain was formed from the remnents of The 60's group The Blues Project and with the addition of Richard Greene on totally E-lectric fiddle. Richard Greene, whom many may remember from Red, White & Bluegrass fame was what set them apart from the field. The other musicans are good but Richard Greene is a cut above them. Their first Capitol Records album, S/T, stands alone as their great achievement. Their next album Marblehead Messenger didn't have the writing to even half-way equal the original. They made an album or two after Greene left in the mid-70's that were a waste of time. Their first Capitol album is one that every folk/kuntry/bluegrass-rock fan should give a listen to. It starts off with the best cover of I'M WILLIN' I've ever heard. The fiddle plays as both a lead and rhytmn instrument on this one. The second tune, SONG OF JOB, is my favourtite. It's a little morality thingy based loosely on the bibical story of Job. I love the way the organ and fiddle sound on this one. Several of their tunes embrace enviornmentalism, BROKEN MORNING and OUT WHERE THE HILLS. When listening to Seatrain you hear the guitar player and he's not bad but it's the fiddle that is the lead instrument. 13 QUESTIONS was an actual radio hit, least ways it made the top 40 for a few weeks. It starts out with a fiddle riff. Mr. Greene gave the fiddle an almost guitar-like quality at times. Out in the middle, where one might expect the guitar solo to be, yeah, you quessed it, there's a fiddle solo. The album has two purely bluegrass tracks. SALLY GOODIN' is real nice, but O.B.S. (Orange Blossom Special) is off the chart! I've yet to hear it played better and every fiddler plays it. The vocalist sings the song but you hardly notice him. The fiddle part is so riveting. I saw Seatrain play live at C.W. Post College on Long Island one snowy night in the early 70's and I've been a fan ever since. I wish they'd left behind a few other great albums but they didn't. Many groups come and go and don't leave anything of lasting value behind, atleast Seatrain left us one gem.
