Live at the Lighthouse is a live album by organist Charles Earland which was recorded at the Lighthouse Café in Hermosa Beach in 1972 and released on the Prestige label. Certainly there is plenty of improvisation here and many unexpected twists and turns in the arrangements, with decisions made and reacted to on the spot.

Repackaged by Ace are two of Charles Earland's baddest dates recorded for Prestige, both of them live and both of them from his greatest period. Along with Earland's own mighty playing, which never left the realm of absolute intensity in live shows, was his reputation for picking relatively unknown sidemen who not only supercharged the gigs, but also went on to stellar careers in their own right. In the case of Living Black!, the tenor madness of Grover Washington, Jr. is a mighty factor, as is Maynard Parker's guitaristry and Gary Chandler's trumpet playing.

Sly Stone’s ‘Smiling’ in particular is transformed into a high energy rocker that amplifies the original version’s bright chord progressions. Another plus to the sound of this album is the three piece horn section which gives the band a mini-big band effect. This horn driven ensemble sound is used to great effect on their swingin version of ‘We’ve Only Just Begun’.
