Edison Lighthouse was an early 70s British pop-rock group that was primarily devised by songwriters and record producers Barry Mason and Tony McCaulay as a showcase for veteran session singer Tony Burrows' pleasant, soothing vocals. The other original band members were: Stuart Edwards (lead guitar), David Taylor (bass), George Weyman (drums), and Ray Dorey (guitar). Edison Lighthouse scored a massive hit in 1970 with the infectiously bouncy, catchy and upbeat bubblegum pop gem "Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes)," which peaked at #1 on the UK pop radio charts for five weeks straight and sold 250,000 copies in Britain. Moreover, the song sold a million copies in America and peaked at #4 on the Billboard charts in March, 1970. Burrows subsequently left the band to pursue other projects and was replaced by singer/actor Paul Vigrass. The rest of the group line-up was also changed with members from the band Greenfield Hammer. This particular incarnation of Edison Lighthouse barely cracked the UK Top 50 with the bubbly and charming single "It's Up to You, Petula" and eventually broke up in 1971. In 2001 guitarist, songwriter and record producer Les Fradkin obtained the rights to the group name and formed a new version of Edison Lighthouse for touring and recording.
