Lighthouse was formed in the USA by Skip Prokop, one-time drummer in the Paupers, a respected Canadian rock band. His subsequent association with the Al Kooper / Mike Bloomfield Super Session project secured Prokop’s reputation and inspired the inception of this new group. Lighthouse also featured guitarist Ralph Cole, a veteran of several Michigan-based units, and an ambitious string and horn section. Initially compared favourably with Chicago, a series of personnel changes undermined what potential Lighthouse offered and consequently later albums lacked direction. Al Wilmot, the one-time bass player with SRC, joined the act towards the close of its career, but the group had folded by the end of 70s.
