Limited 13 CD box set from the iconic Dutch band.

Opposites attract, or so they say. And Jan Akkerman and Thijs van Leer certainly are opposites. Both incredibly gifted, the two musicians inspire each other when they meet in Focus. Here you find Akkerman and Van Leer's exciting legacy of superb continental European progressive rock. And jazz. And classical music. Plus the non-Akkerman Focus releases, with a rejuvenated band helmed by Thijs van Leer, innovative as ever, creating new sounds like no other band can. A box of groundbreaking music to say the least.

Focus ‎– At The Rainbow
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue| 24bit/96kHz
Label: Polydor/2442 118 | Release: 1973 | Genre: Symphonic-Rock

Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection.
I always read terrible reviews about this album something with I don't agree, of course is not one of their masterpieces, but the quality of the music and the selection of songs is outstanding.
Probably some fans aren't too happy without The House of the King, but the mood of the concert is different to any other band, somehow dreamy and oneiric, with that atmosphere that covers the audience as a thick cloud of mist that covers the listener but instead of suffocating him the music helps to relax (Except of course for Hocus Pocus).

This is a live album by Focus. It is an excellent live performance of the early Focus.

Focus ‎– Focus 3

Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music.
Featuring "House of the King"


'Focus III' is IMHO Focus' top achievement. Not only do these guys deliver some of their most inspired playing, but also manage to work as a unit with a level of compenetration that hides the ongoing rivality between van Leer and Akkerman (sometimes, a not so healthy one).
Focus ‎– Hamburger Concerto (1974) ATCO Records/SD 36-100 - CA Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz - ONLY RE-POST

Focus ‎– Hamburger Concerto
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz
Label: ATCO Records/SD 36-100 | Release: 1974 | Genre: Symphonic-Rock

Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music.
Focus has always been a band with sense of humor, not only for the strange sounds and yodeling emitted by Thijs Van Leer but also for the jokes they made of sacred cows.
For example Hamburger Concerto is a play of words with Brandenburg Concerto by Johan Sebastian Bach (Not easy to find a bigger or more sacred cow anywhere), they work with the obvious Baroque influence in a delightful way just to make a Concert to.."the hamburger", something that only few and brave genius as Thijs Van Leer would ever dare to do.
Focus ‎– Moving Waves (1971) Sire‎/SAS 7401 - 1st US Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz - ONLY RE-POST

Focus ‎– Moving Waves
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz
Label: Sire ‎/ SAS 7401 | Release: 1971 | Genre: Symphonic-Rock

Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music.
I remembered way back as a kid hearing "Hocus Pocus" on the radio, this must be around 1979 or 1980, on the FM dial. Around 1989, I heard this song again and found out it was "Hocus Pocus" and the group was called FOCUS. I thought that was silly to have a song title that rhymes with the group's name. I thought it was a rather ingenious mixing of heavy metal and yodeling.
When my interest in prog rock was on the rise around the early '90s, I was wondering if it was worth trying FOCUS, and once I got to hear "Moving Waves", I was not disappointed.

Doug Parkinson has rarely gone unnoticed - for his voice, his physique, his very presence. From the moment he appeared as a serious participant in Australian popular music in 1966 he commanded attention. Thirty years later he is a true household name - known as one of the great distinctive Oz Rock voices and musical mainstays. In And Out Of Focus 1966-75 kicks off with three tracks by the Questions, Doug's first hit band - 'Sally Go 'Round The Roses' (a Top 15 Sydney hit), 'Hey Gyp' & 'And Things Unsaid'…
