The prolific Toronto rock ensemble Lighthouse released its fifth studio album in 1971—the same year that its fourth long-player, One Fine Morning, came out. Thoughts of Moving On better captured the band’s skill at making an 11-piece group sound both complicated and simple. The opening “Take It Slow” is a spry and soulful rocker that captures the Woodstock melting-pot sound; it’s curious why Lighthouse turned down the invitation to perform at that historic festival. Perhaps it was more interested in taking on innovative and creative projects—like being the first rock band to play live with a symphony orchestra or performing with actress Irene Worth for a CBC production of Prometheus Bound. “What Gives You the Right” gets groovy with a horn section accompanying locomotive percussion and the kind of wah-wah guitar that was indicative of the early '70s. Though this was only the second Lighthouse album with vocalist Bob McBride, he sings like a seasoned frontman here and in the closing “Insane,” which features lush, wall-to-wall string arrangements.
