LIGHTHOUSE! Pretty Lady
From Music Mike's YouTube channel comes this wonderful "new" video of the Lighthouse song "Pretty Lady." Lighthouse was a Canadian music band known for its brassy rock n roll, similar in style to Blood Sweat & Tears or Chicago. They were louder than both. They had a handful of hits, the most recognizable one being "One Fine Morning" form 1971.
"Pretty Lady" was a single track released in 1973 that only went to the mid 50's on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. The song however topped the local radio charts in Hawaii and to this day remains one of my favorites. Give "Pretty Lady" a listen by clicking on the video link above. It's a song you'll remember or wished you heard long ago.
