This CD is a re-issue (with some additional newer material) of a 1969 LP by the group The Original Caste. They were the first to record the song "One Tin Soldier" and had a hit with it on the charts (several years before the band Coven sang it on the soundtrack for the movie Billy Jack and it charted again!). This CD is NOT, I repeat, NOT an original cast recording of any show, as Amazon has it listed. Again, the name of the band is The Original Caste (with an "e" at the end; check the album cover!)

Interesting 1970 album by the Canadian folk-rock group, The Original Caste, whose lead singer's voice at times recalls a young Linda Ronstadt. Curiously, the title track, One Tin Soldier, was the only Hot 100 entry for not one but two "one-hit wonders", this group and Coven (2 years later). A word of warning, though - those thinking about replacing their old 45 or LP should be aware that the Japanese reissue (Unversal UICY-1303) appears to be dubbed from a (good) vinyl copy of the album.

Though American listeners will remember "One Tin Soldier" as a one-hit wonder by Coven, this Canadian quintet actually struck one-hit-wonder gold first, charting the same song at #34 in 1970. Amazingly, Coven, with the help of the song's placement in the film "The Legend of Billy Jack," ran their version of the song up to #26 the following year. The two renditions feature similar drums-and-horns arrangements, with the Coven version just a touch faster. Even more amazingly, the Coven version cracked the top-100 for a second time in 1973 and for a third time in 1974! So, two one-hit wonder bands, one song, four chart entries!

The Original Caste started out as a folk trio, The North Country Singers, changing their name when they signed with Bell and shifting their towards more highly produced pop. This 1969 debut album sold well in their native Canada, and reached #34 in the U.S. The Abba-esque single "Mr. Monday" flopped in the States, but found success in Canada and Japan. A few of the songs bring to mind hybrid folk-pop acts like Brewer & Shipley and Sweetwater, and there are fleeting blues and soul references. But Dixie Lee James sunshine-pop vocals, the multipart backing harmonies and tight horn charts give this a dynamic pop finish verging on hippie show tunes (think cool plays like "Hair" and "Godspell"). 3-1/2 stars, if allowed fractional ratings.
