While another Edison Lighthouse compilation might be something to get excited about for bubblegum pop fanatics, the truth is that Park South's release of On the Rocks is a complete farce. It includes their only number one hit, "Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes)," but this is the only song on On the Rocks that is actually performed by Edison Lighthouse. Other songs like "Funny How Love Can Be" are performed by other bands -- in this case, by an unknown group performing the song in the same style as the First Class, a group linked to Edison Lighthouse via singer Tony Burrows, who sang for both groups. Those looking for a collection of Edison Lighthouse should pass this one by and instead pick up The Best of Edison Lighthouse: Love Grows on the Repertoire label, or check out the excellent compilation with a focus on all of the groups Tony Burrows sang for, Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes): The Voice of Tony Burrows.
