SEA DOG - IT'S A HOT NIGHT


From a message board...

Location: Toronto

WSW: A group called Taxi moved to Toronto from Sudbury in '68 (one unreleased 45, it seems), where they changed their name to Tote Family (two 45s), then to Sea Dog. Members came and went along the way, of course. The organist/singer of the organ-drenched "It's A Hot Night" was Doug Varty of London, Ont. By the time their lame LP was released they'd had a pretty much total makeover, except for drummer Jim Norris. Otherwise journeyman SW Ontario musicians. Taxi / Tote Family guitarist Fred Cacciotti is noteworthy in that he played on the Homestead LP, a great project that featured Jon Finley from Rhinoceros singing pianist Bill King's songs, the best known of which, "Anthem" (aka "We The People Of The World") deserves a hearing in the current times of strife. King was (and still is) interesting in that, before leaving the US army to come to Canada in a hurry in '69, he was the original pianist in Janis Joplin's Kozmic Blues Band. (So he was signed to Grossman at the same time as our guys.) He now runs the Beaches Jazz Fest and took most of the photos that adorn the walls at the Rex.


Note: I have seen to different dates on the above song...1971 & 1974. The 1974 date was listed next to the 45's for sale so maybe they were repressings.

Hi this is Doug Varty the guy who wrote "It's a Hot Night". I was googling my name looking for my website to show up (dougvarty.ca) and I found your message. If you want to know anything about the song or band let me know.

Hi Dan,

Doug Varty here. I was googling my name and got to your reply. Yes, I agree it was a rather lame album. Do you have any personal connection to the Seadog band? If you have any questions feel free to contact me.

Cheers,

Doug Varty

PS the reason for the different dates on the record is because we recorded the song 3 times.

Doug,

Do you have the lyrics to 'It's A Hot Night' or can you confirm the following lyrics are in the song written by you?

it's a hot night and the air won't move
it's a hot night and i'm thinking of you


BTW, the "lame LP" description was copied from a website on Google. I was looking for any information I could find about the band.

Thanks,

Dan

I do have the lyrics - the ones you quoted are the ones I wrote. I can write'em out for you if you want...
it's kinda cool somebody remembers this stuff - do you have any particular connection to the band?

Doug
