Seatrain is a second album by the band Seatrain, recorded in 1970 and adding Peter Rowan on guitar and lead vocals. Produced by George Martin, this was his first-ever record he produced after The Beatles. The most successful song on this album is "13 Questions", which charted two Top 40 hits.
"I'm Willing" is an up-beat cover of the Little Feat-classic, nonetheless keeping the originals lyric intensity. "Song of Job" draws on The Old Testament Book of Job, in a sensitive rendering of the complex 42 chapters, retaining the framestory, as well as bits of the books main body, the religious conversations between Job and his friends. The revelation of God at the end is a wonderfully conceived musical crescendo. "Waiting for Elijah" also draws on the Old Testament, or rather the apocryphal belief in the second coming of the prophet. In the line of "I'm Willing", "Home to you" is another roadsong, not of hard work, but of hard earned leisure, yearning and love.
