"Focus has never been one for clever album titles and the rather pedestrian title to this album is no different. I don't know this for sure, but I assume this is the band's 8th studio album. The lineup for this one is the reformed new millennium Focus...

Waysiders of a certain age will remember John Foxx as the leader of early electro-wavers Ultravox for their 1st 3 (and most arty/best) albums. After leaving he made music a bit more pop oriented, so this very classy ambient release is a pleasant...

You already know I am a bebop fanatic. I scored this great title a few years ago (paying $20.00 for it and happy to get it at all), but it's out of print and quite rare, selling for $60 and up when it can be found.

*PLEASE NOTE - In addition to the cut out mark, these copies have cuts and bruises on the outer sleeve of the package. Inner digipacks appear to be fine. Still a killer deal on this excellent set! The Experience may have gone out in a mess...
