Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection.
This self-titled reunion album is fantastic and one of my favorites in the Focus catalog for the same reason that it is mostly ignored: it only features two important members of the original band and the music is based much more in jazz-fusion and heavy new age.

Live release from the Dutch prog rock band. Focus is known around the world for it's iconic albums, including the hits 'Hocus Pocus', 'Sylvia' and 'House Of The King'. All three of these hits appear on this official release. Focus Live in England features the Focus 9 line-up of Thijs Van Leer, Pierre Van Der Linden, Bobby Jacobs and Niels Van Der Steenhoven. The album has only ever been available as a merchandise item sold by the band… until now. However, this edition is the complete concert and not the edited version originally sold by the band.

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.

What can a man do with a guitar?
Being referred to as one of the best guitarist on the globe this moment had to come: the ultimate guitar solo record. To be more specific: the ultimate guitar side of a record.

Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection.
Out of limited number of albums that I have on Jan Akkerman's solo works, this is the album that I like most for a very simple and basic reason: the music is nice even though not that progressive or not that jazz.
