We'd like to thank everyone for preventing us of dead links. For the moment, we are note able to re-up them.

Feel free to keep on preventing us of those dead links. We will update them when we (I and Jeb-E-Diah) have more time to (understand : from september). Some of them will be partially or completely repacked considering albums which would have been issued thereafter and surely with new and improved artworks.

Stay tuned !

One thing is noticeable with progressive music: it's one of the only musical style to have emerged famous bands from any country, not only anglo saxons ones. Focus is one of these examples. From the Nederlands, this band has managed to catch the interest of abroad music lovers. Fronted by crazy Thijs Van Leer, they mainly were popular for their famous guitarist : Jan Akkerman. His touch and feeling at playing the guitar was (and is) trully unique. However, Jan did not play on each and every Focus album. Amazingly, Jazz guitarist took his place for a while!
After a long break, Focus were back in the early 00s with only Von Leer as the original member.
Also featured in this baistophe, a song from the duet Thijs Van Leer / Jan Akkerman issued in the 1985 album simply named . . . Focus.

My Focus Top 3 :
1. Focus 3 (1973)
2. Moving Waves (1971)
3. Ship Of Memories (1975)

My Focus Bottom 3 :
1. Focus (1985)
2. Focus 8 (2002)
3. Focus Con Proby (1978)
