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 had well proven their ability to write rocking instrumentals by the time of this release. Their catalog, although consisting of four albums, rarely had a dull moment between them. Hamburger Concerto is equally consistent, much of it being prime Focus material. The Akkerman-written "Birth" and "Early Birth" are examples of Focus fully flexing their muscles, featuring superb guitar work and amazing all-round musicianship, as well as sporting some superb riffs. The usual lengthy instrumentals are present also, as well as some manic vocals from the manic but genius Thijs Van Leer. Although Hamburger Concerto is not as unerring as Moving Waves or Focus III, anyone who enjoyed the previous releases would undoubtedly find great satisfaction from this album.

David Hamburger’s Focus On: Standard Tuning Slide will quickly impart the requisite right and left-hand techniques, harmonic approaches and fretboard positioning for playing slide guitar in standard tuning — but still sounding like open-tuning slide guitar work! “While there’s a whole lineage of bona fide standard tuning slide masters, from Robert Nighthawk through Mick Taylor to Warren Haynes and beyond, Focus On: Standard Tuning Slide will teach you how to get the sounds of the classic open-tuned slide wizards while staying in standard tuning. You'll be pleased to discover how much you can begin conjuring up in the way of Muddy Waters, Elmore James, Duane Allman and other slide masters — all in standard tuning.”

Frank Peter Zimmermann offers a fresh and exciting view of the Violin Concerto, less sentimental than some, with swift tempos and a dazzlingly swift finale. He phrasing is sometimes a touch angular, particularly in the first movement, and this usually works well, putting an arresting slant on tunes we feel we've heard a million times before. Only the very opening misfires a bit: yes, it's marked mezzo-forte, but it's also marked "dolce ed espressivo", and Zimmermann's somewhat wiry tone is neither.
