I owned all of the Lighthouse albums back in the early 70's and this album and "Thoughts of Moving On" were my two favorites. "Thoughts of...." was the follow up LP to "One Fine Morning" released later in 1971. (Both on the Evolution label) On "One Fine Morning" they had the perfect mix of pop, jazz, rock, and even soul. The lead song, "Love of a Woman" has some great vocals and an excellent instrumental section. If you ever liked Maynard Ferguson, listen to the Maynard-like trumpet solo at the end of the first song!! "Old Man" is a wonderful mid-tempo song with great harmonies,and the classic horn background to compliment the lead vocals. It breaks into an uptempo jam in the style of Blood, Sweat, and Tears. (Nice trombone solo which breaks into a xylophone jam) It finishes up in a melancholy mood, featuring their strings in the background and another trombone solo. Just beautiful!Read more ›
I had no idea what they sounded like when I saw them in the catalogue, but they had a cool album cover. I remember playing this album quite a few times even though they didn't play the style of music I was into.
I just burned it to CD and gave it a few more listens, and I must say, it is still good.
At times it reminds me of Blood Sweat and Tears, and at others, Chicago, but it is still unique enough to stand on its own. This is not a guitar album so if that is your interest, this is not for you. However, the music is heavy on horns and keyboards, especially the trumpet and sax.
This was a band from Canada that cut a few other albums, but I've never heard any of them. I heard that they still play to this day, though many of the members have moved on.
The vocals remind me most of David Clayton Thomas, another fellow Canadian, but only in spots.
My favorites are One Fine Morning and 1849.
Overall, there is not a bad song on either side, and if you like BS&T and Chicago, you will like this. Highly recommended.
Shipper packaged in a bubble wrap envelope; it arrived safely.. Thank you....
I have heard better 40-year-old Audio Cassettes than the just horrid attempt to make this CD sounds like..
It even sounds better through my laptop speakers on YouTube !!!!
The absolutely terrible recording, and mix is so bad, I am just going to throw this away...
I dont blame the Seller, I blame the Drunk Clowns on Drugs that made this, listened to it, and let it go...
If you buy this, well, all I can say is good luck... :)
"Love Of A Woman" - The album opens with this rocking song, about a man who has been without the love of a woman for a long time. Bob McBride turns in an impassioned lead vocal. The song ends with Pete Pantaluk hitting a very high note on the trumpet. This should have been released as a single, and deserved to be a hit.
"Little Kind Words" - The song is a mid-tempo love song, with some nice vocal harmonizing, and a sympathetic band arrangement.
"Old Man" -This is a mid-tempo ballad, in which the lyrics take the singer from a baby, to a young man, to an old man facing the end of his life in record time. The second half of the song is an instrumental, leaving this listener to ponder about how quickly life goes by.
"Sing, Sing, Sing" - The band rocks out on this celebratory song, which reminds me of the following words of Bruce Springsteen. "It ain't no sin to be glad you're alive!"
"1849" - This is an excellent song about the California gold rush of 1849, and how the settlers' greed for gold soon turned into a struggle for survival. This is one of the band's best songs. It's too bad they didn't do more songs about historical events.
"One Fine Morning" - The title song is a horn-driven, up-tempo love song.Read more ›

Recording was not up to par and the sound level was way too low. I had to turn up the volume double my other downloads and it sounded like a stereo with one speaker out.Published on May 4, 2014 by Hap
