These innovative instrumentals include elements fans will recognise along with new and experimental directions.

The VOL. 2 line-up will be on tour again with FOCUS in late 2014 and throughout 2015.

Producer and bass player Bobby Jacobs described the two discs as: “These are studio versions of all the fun we have always during our Focus soundchecks, often before Father Focus (Thijs van Leer) arrives. We always start to play from zero and this is what happens! Enjoy!”
The very first review on Amazon reads: This CD is fantastic. Thanks to the 3 Focus guys for this initiative. This CD captures the true adventurous spirit of the original Focus. All tracks blend well in each other.  This is a must have for all Focus fans… (I’ve been a fan of Focus for almost 45 years). This release easily levels with Focus 2 & 3.
