This CD took me back in time!
E. C. Martz
Anyway once I realized my oversight, well it was 1-click time... Now if someone can just put me onto Curved Air's first album, the one with "Metamorphasis" on it...
Tour
I had forgotten just how good this band was.

Format: Audio CD
First off, a couple of reviewers here only gave this CD four stars. I am so stunned by that, I can hardly spit! Dear God, does it get any better than 1971 Seatrain! I think not!
This double CD contains both the second and third Seatrain albums titled "Seatrain" (released in early 1971) and "Marblehead Messenger" (released in late 1971).
The FIRST Seatrain album was released in mid-1969 on A&M Records (the CD now available from Edsel) and was called Sea Train (two words) with band members: Andy Kulberg (bass player/flutist); Jim Roberts (lyricist); Richard Greene (violinist); John Gregory (singer/guitarist); Don Kretmar (saxophonist) and Roy Blumenfeld (drummer).
This debut album enjoyed only moderate success.
Kulberg, Roberts and Greene stayed on while Gregory, Kretmar and Blumenfeld left the band in 1970. They were replaced with: Peter Rowan (singer/guitarist), Lloyd Baskin (singer/keyboard player) and Larry Atamanuik (drummer)
The second album was ALSO titled "Seatrain" (one word). It was released in early 1971 on Capital Records and produced by the Beatles' ex-producer, George Martin.
THIS is the album everyone loves and talks about! It contains their commercial hit "13 Questions" and ten other exceptional tunes: I'm Willin'; Song of Job; Broken Morning; Home To You; Out Where The Hills; Waiting For Elijah; Oh My Love; Sally Goodin'; Creepin' Midnight and (the incomparable) Orange Blossom Special.
I'm not going to expound on the individual songs contained on the above album except to say it wins my "deserted island" contest. Yes, this is my favorite album OF ALL TIME and the ONE I would take with me to listen to in perpetuity if I could only select one!

Ok, first off - this is the band that did "13 Questions" and if that's what you're looking for, it's on this CD. Yay!

Now - as to the rest of the CD?

This is Seatrain's 2nd and 3rd album (both produced by George Martin, altho I understand the 3rd one he was much less hands on) and they both kick butt.

Seatrain was founded from parts of the Blues Project and certainly has some of the same blues rock feeling, but with the addition of a fiddle player they do get into more of a bluegrass thing as well - witness "Orange Blossom Special" for instance. But afew of the songs (Gramercy forinstance) have a very english folk feel - a la Fairport Convention.

And most of it just straight ahead rocks out - Seatrain might even be a precursor to bands like Kansas with the twin violin/guitar lead instrument pairing.

Anyway, there's just tons of good music on this CD - 13 Questions, Gramercy, Orange Blossom Special, The Song of Job (yes, the Job from the bible - rockin' tune!), and lots of others.

This CD is really worth getting, the music holds up well and you can see what bands were like when they had breadth of sound and weren't just focused on "their demo", so to speak.

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Will (die hard Bob Dylan fan) on November 28, 2005
Format: Audio CD
I was digging through my parents' record collection from the 60's and 70's and came across this album. From the second I put the needle to the vinyl I knew that this was my kind of music. Nothing can quite beat the sound of an old vinyl, but the copy I had was rather scratched and damaged, so I came to the web to find a new copy. Resigning myself to the advancement in technology, I purchased this CD. Not only is the quality amazing, but the album insert is rather informative as well.

If this is your first time with Seatrain, buy this album. I guarentee you'll be hooked from the first note of I'm Willin'

If you're a long time Seatrain fan, then you'll find this CD very high quality. The remastering does Seatrain justice.

5 stars most definately

The first CD in this set is great. I'm Willin' and 13 Questions and, perhaps one of my all time favorites, Creepin' Midnight are there.
The group has more than mastered their parts, vocal and instrumental. They're tight and clear.
But all the musical talant and skill that was brought to bear on Marblehead Messenger could not cover up lousy song writing. Nothing there captures my imagination.
I don't regret buying the set because I adore most of the first CD and I'm very glad to have it. But, don't get your hopes up for the second CD.

Anyone out there in amazon-land searching for real quality 70's american rock/country-rock/bluegrass music of timeless enjoyment , then few bands EVER matched the quality of SEATRAIN!!This band had everything.....2 fabulously talented lead singers ..Peter Rowan(who ofcourse went on to much greater fame..Old & in the way /The Rowan Brothers( my all time favourite harmony group), & the other guy ..Lloyd Baskin, and , boy, could he sing!!!Then the musical talents of Andy Kulberg & Richard Greene on extraordinary violin made Seatrain a fabulous concept.Their songwriting material was truly, truly excellent,mostly written by Rowan or Baskinthemselves , nearly every song on the e[ponymous 1st. album & the Marblehead messenger (2nd.) album is truly brilliant & memorable, even now, 30 years later!!Seatrain were a totally unique band of musicians & singers.This 2 set c.d. proves it!!(I only wish i could trace what became of Mr. Lloyd Baskin himself..what a vocalist!1Does anybody know??????? Get this gem !!!
