Lighthouse -One Fine Morning-1971 Canada

This was one of the most significant groups to come out of Canada in this era and was put together by drummer Skip Prokop in 1968. A horn rock band, they are often considered to be Canada's answer to Chicago and Blood, Sweat and Tears.
Lighthouse recorded in Toronto their fourth album "One Fine Morning", which was much better than the previous albums, and at last they had a hit with the eponymous song.
"One Fine Morning" has strident guitar chords, a horn section which blends in perfectly, catchy melody, strong vocals by their new singer Bob McBride, jazzy piano and guitar solos. A gem of the horn rock genre!
This along with "Love Of A Woman", a soulful jazz-rocker featuring great solo sax work, are the best tracks of the album.
The album released in 1971 by GRT Records (9230-1002) in Canada and by Evolution Records (ST-93843) in US.
