iTunes Review

By its fourth studio album, Lighthouse had scaled back to 11 members, but that hardly stopped the sprawling ensemble. “Love of a Woman,” the opener from 1971’s One Fine Morning, is as brazen-sounding as the band's preceding works, with a blaring horn section jamming alongside a panoramic percussion section and new lead singer Bob McBride soulfully singing like his life depended on it. Though less energetic, “Little Kind Words” follows with skipping rhythms, childlike backing vocals, and whimsical woodwinds to match the song’s fancy. With a catchy melody, a deep groove, and uplifting lyrics about doing it for the children, “Sing, Sing, Sing” is a joyous standout that rocks like something out of Jesus Christ Superstar or Godspell. Still, it was the hyper-jazzy title track that yielded a hit for the band shortly after the album’s release. “Hats Off to the Stranger” swings in a similar way to Blood Sweat & Tears’ “Spinning Wheel,” while “Show Me the Way” saunters along like a slightly more soulful version of something from Chicago’s 1969 debut album, Chicago Transit Authority.

Customer Reviews


Have the casette from 1972. Found the LP at a flea market roughly 10 years later. If you grew up to 70's rock with a horn section then you'll like Canada's answer to early Chicago & Blood, Sweat & Tears from that era. FINALLY, the digital format appears SOMEWHERE! My only regret is that when playing the samples the tunes all sound distant, faded and washed out. Like this went straight from analogue to digital with no remastering to bring the sound back to life and to the forefront.

What happened to the sonics?

It's great to see this here but the audio quality is dreadful. It sounds like a 3rd or 4th generation dub sourcing an old Montgomery Wards cassette deck. My LP vinyl sounds far better than whats loaded here on ITunes

Good Stuff With Lighthouse

One Fine Morning is one of the best ever. Hats Off was a good one as well. Still have the old vinyl - much better than this digital stuff. This is one group I wished had kept going.
