Lighthouse put out three excellent albums on RCA between 1969 and 1970. They were in the same vein of B.S.&T., Chicago, Ides of March, Chase, and Tower of Power. What set them apart was that they even contained a mini string section within the band. There were eleven musicians that could jam, play awesome ballads, and jazz it up when needed. They perfected some excellent pop tunes that were very radio friendly but their peak moment was their American breakthrough hit, "One Fine Morning",(Billboard #24). It was quite progressive for the fall of 1971, but it climbed the charts in the U.S. and finally gave them due justice and their highest charting hit! (They were already pretty successful in their native Canada) Ironically the song was released on the Evolution label which was extremely small. This album reached #80 on Billboard's album charts and ended up being their most successful album.

Pawn Hearts is the fourth album by English progressive rock band Van der Graaf Generator, released in October 1971 on Charisma Records. The original album features just three tracks, including the side-long suite "A Plague of Lighthouse Keepers". The album was not commercially successful in the UK, but reached number one in Italy. The songs for the album were worked out while on tour in 1971, with further development and arranging at manager Tony Stratton-Smith's house in Crowborough, Sussex over a two-month period. The original plan had been to release more material, making up a double album, but Charisma vetoed the idea…

With the appearance of Lighthouse, singer/songwriter David Crosby, age 75, continues a late career renaissance that began with 2014's Croz – his proper studio follow-up to 1971's classic If I Could Only Remember My Name. This set was produced by Snarky Puppy boss Michael League, who co-wrote five of these nine tunes with Crosby. The producer, a lifelong fan of the 1971 album, approached Crosby about recording something quick and dirty over a couple of weeks. He was met with incredulousness. The artist was used to working on albums for months, even years. After three days, they completed three new songs, and Crosby was all in…

Van Der Graaf Generator's third album, Pawn Hearts was also its second most popular; at one time this record was a major King Crimson cult item due to the presence of Robert Fripp on guitar, but Pawn Hearts has more to offer than that. The opening track, "Lemmings," calls to mind early Gentle Giant, with its eerie vocal passages (including harmonies) set up against extended sax, keyboard, and guitar-driven instrumental passages, and also with its weird keyboard and percussion interlude, though this band is also much more contemporary in its focus than Gentle Giant…

Canadian brass rock band Lighthouse were formed in Toronto 1969. Unusually, the band leader Ronn "Skip" Prokop was a drummer, he has played previously with artists such as Janis Joplin, Carlos Santana and Al Kooper before forming his first band The Paupers. Of these, the Kooper connection is probably the most significant, as the music of Lighthouse is based around a solid brass section and big arrangements, similar to those of Blood Sweat And Tears and Chigago (Transit Authority). Prokop's ambitions were made clear from the outset when the first line up of Lighthouse had no less than 11 members. The were quickly picked up by RCA Victor, who release the bands self titled debut in 1969.

One of Canada's most original brass groups ever, Lighthouse was formed in Toronto early in 1969 when drummer Skip Prokop (ex of The Paupers, Janis Joplin, Al Kooper and Carlos Santana) had a vision of incorporating horns and strings with modern rock, sort of a heavy-hitting 'big band' sound. After a chance meeting in New York with Paul Hoffert - who was actually trained in more classical stylings and already an established sessions-player. Ralph Cole joined soon after. Originally a native of Kalamazoo, Michigan, Cole knew Prokop when he was in Thyme, who had actually performed on many bills with The Paupers during the latter half of the decade…

One of the great lost treasures of australian 70’s music. Although Autumn began as a bubblegum band in the late-60’s, the early-70’s found them, after various line-up changes, a markedly different band. With lush harmonies, Beatlesque arrangements and a great batch of songs that ranged from breezy pop to progressive rock (as well as the the seven minute orchestral extravaganza: ‘Kill My World’), Comes… Autumn showed a mature and accomplished band that belied both their age and their beginnings. Features the singles ‘Falling’, and ‘Goblin’s Gamble’ plus 5 bonus tracks: including the rare final single ‘Just Couldn’t Believe It’, a spirited cover of The Beatles’ ‘Day Tripper’ and previously unreleased demos. Deluxe reissue is packaged in a 6 panel digi-pak. It has been remastered by Gil Matthews. Liner notes featuring quotes from a recent interview with lead singer Tony Romeril and a 24 page booklet filled with rare photos, posters.

For the Funk of It is the second thematically focused volume in Blue Note's Original Jam Master Series that draws from guitarist Grant Green's late-period recordings for the label, from 1969 to 1972. Some of the players involved in these sessions include drummer Idris Muhammad, saxophonist Claude Bartee, Jr., Cornell Dupree (rhythm guitar), percussionists Hall Bobby Porter and Ray Armando, bassist Chuck Rainey, organist Emanuel Riggins, and many others. The material here is less bombastic than the soul and funk covers on Green's Ain't It Funky Now!, but they are still deep in the jukebox soul-jazz groove that was rapidly disappearing during the era.
