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'…

This awesome band came from Munich and made three extraordinary albums on the super-collectable Kuckuk label plus another that never got released until recently. Hennes Herring on KB (mainly Hammond organ), Remi Dreschler on guitars, Moran Neumuller on vocals and winds, Klaus Spöri and Stefan Wisheu on drums and bass respectively made an incredibly tight unit although they were prone to a lot of improvisation moments also. Their music is somewhat similar to early British prog but will gradually evolve to a certain jazz-rock while staying very politically and socially conscious (in the typical German style of those years)…

On their eponymous second album, Out of Focus further develop their progressive jazz-rock sound, at the same time pushing in other directions as well. The rhythm section is still as upbeat and funky as ever, with those repetitive but odd rhythm patterns. There is now more sax in the mix, as well as the flute riffing, guitar wails, and chunky organ chords, with each instrument allowed ample soloing and no instrument over-dominant.

Existing for ten years or so, Out Of Focus were amongst the finest of German rock fusion bands. Formed in late-1968 in Munich, they rapidly established a stylish and refined blend of rock and jazz, that drew in psychedelic overtones and also a profound socio-political awareness in Moran Neumuller's songs. Actually this disc must be considered as OOF’s fourth full-blown album, although it was never released until 2000, but was recorded in 74. Not Too Late is a compilation of ideas from the third album, recorded in a home studio and released only in 2000 by Cosmic Egg. It's a remarkable gem that proved Out Of Focus to be moving on despite the media apathy.

"…This nomadic anthology captures the pathos of the human condition with originality and verve. Multichannel SACD is an ideal medium for this music. The understated nuances of the various stringed instruments are reproduced with clear acoustics, whether it’s a prominent rhythm guitar, or delicate lute. Tonal quality of the voices is flawless. The depth and texture of the vocals (in particular the ensembles) refine the musical eminence." ~Audiophile Audition

Cat Coward is a truly gifted jazz singer. Her style is all her own with echoes of Ella. "Cat Out of the Bag" is a real gem. From the opening notes, you know you're in on to something special. The phrasing and tone are silky smooth, lyrical, and full of life and talent. My favorite tunes are "My Love Is", "I Can See Clearly Now" (the jazz interpretation is a total treat), and "Twisted" - I love "Twisted" so much that I think I'm going to give it to my shrink! ~ Stephanie Kesler, Anchorage Concert Association…

The album also improved on her previous one by reaching No.15 there during a four-month chart run. A second single was released, the title track "Out of My Hands", while the album boasted a collaboration with Brian May on the Queen cover "Who Wants to Live Forever" - which was released as a promo-only single. Also included on the album was a cover of the Moody Blues hit "Nights in White Satin".

Lindsey Buckingham quit Fleetwood Mac after the release of their Tango in the Night album in 1987 and spent the subsequent five years working on his first post-Mac solo album, Out of the Cradle. Perhaps because he was now focused on his solo career, Buckingham reined in the experimental style of his first two albums, producing more conventional, accessible material, much of it similar to his later work with Fleetwood Mac…
