Focus tried to keep going but soon splintered, with a brief and unimpressive reunion in the 1980s. But low and behold, early in this century Thijs Van Leer resurrected the band. Admittedly a little shaky at first, he shouldered on with a few different line ups before landing drummer Pierre Van Der Linden from the classic 1970s line-up. It really helps solidify the band.
What you get here is a tremendous value; two CD's and a DVD of high quality prog. The video is a bit of a labor of love but good quality, the audio is strong. But the performance is exceptional and worth the time, money and effort. These guys, new and old, have not lost a step. Sure, Thijs Van Leer is fifty pounds heavier and has a voice two octaves lower, but ht e man can play. And the band is tighter than ever, with new material as good as the old.
Great value for the money, well worth your time.
