Focus - Hocus Pocus 13 CD box set (due to size and weight, this price for the USA only. Outside of the USA, the price will be adjusted as needed)

SKU 28-RBUL4466307.2
Co-led by the great guitarist Jan Akkerman and keyboardist Thijs Van Leer, Focus are the best known Dutch progressive rock band, thanks to their 'novelty hit' Hocus Pocus. Novelty or not, it was a great song with unbelievable hot solos, and was one of the first progressive rock tunes to be a hit in the USA (and certainly was the first basically instrumental progressive rock hit).
This is all of their albums at a bargain price (and especially a bargain when you consider how hard it has been to find them on CD in recent years. Not everything here is total top notch, but plenty of it is. A perfect way to get some really great music.

"Limited 13 CD box set from the iconic Dutch band. Includes the albums In & Out Of Focus, Focus II Moving Waves, Focus III, Live At The Rainbow, Hamburger Concerto, Mother Focus, Ship Of Memories, Focus Con Proby, Jann Akkerman & Thijs Van Leer - Focus, Focus 8, Focus 9 New Skin, Focus X, and The Best Of Focus.
Opposites attract, or so they say. And Jan Akkerman and Thijs van Leer certainly are opposites. Both incredibly gifted, the two musicians inspire each other when they meet in Focus. Here you find Akkerman and Van Leer's exciting legacy of superb continental European progressive rock. And jazz. And classical music. Plus the non-Akkerman Focus releases, with a rejuvenated band helmed by Thijs van Leer, innovative as ever, creating new sounds like no other band can. A box of groundbreaking music to say the least."
