Outstanding Band

"I purchased this "Sea Train" LP back in 1969 at a local record store. A friend recognized some of the musicians from the Blues Project, however, we never heard any of the actual songs from this album. We were amazed (back then) of the unique songs and their instrumentation. Thirty-Five years later, this LP ranks in my "TOP 10" list from a collection of over 500 albums from the 1960's through 1970's. There are very few bands that come close to this style of music (ie. It's A Beautiful Day, Hello People). Playing the first side forces me to stop and reflect, entering a relaxed state of melancholy, totally entertained by these great musicians. I had the opportunity a few years back to speak with Andy Kulberg, just before his passing. I asked Andy if the guys ever thought of getting back together for a reunion album. He told me everybody was off doing their own thing and that there were not enough fans around to warrant a reunion. That may be the case, but I am proud to have experienced this exceptional group of days passed, in my youth, when life was much easier.....at the seventh dawn, of the sixth sun, during fifth moon, for the fouth time.....................

So who's better-- even now?

"As a songwriter with roots in classical music as well as pop, I've been listening to this album for 35 years and still consider it one of the ten best non-classical productions ever--
perhaps even the best. From the passages of triple counterpoint to the rapturous displays of delicious, loving pop satire ("Sweet
Creek's Suite") to the heartfelt lyrics, this work has it all.
Special compliments to the work of Richard Greene and his richly
overdubbed quartet stylings. So where are these brilliant guys now?"
Sea Train SEA TRAIN (not the George Martin one)

"I'm really glad to see other people appreciate this brilliant debut album by Sea Train--it should be released as a twofer with Blues Project PLANNED OBSOLESCENCE, which contained the same band members. I agree with the sentiment that called it was one of the greatest non-classical rock records ever (relevant because of the album's baroque stylings and virtuoso musicianship) and also one of the geekiest yet strangely moving records ever. From the time when experimental bands could still get signed...terrific violin and guitar, truly adventurous arrangements, musically all over the map, sounds like no one else and yes, it rocks too. Most of the music appears to have been written by Andy Kulberg, the flute player! I even dig the effete vocals, which fit nicely. Not to be confused with Sea Train SAME produced by George Martin which aims for a similar ecleticism but doesn't have the songs this one does...."
