2 stars Actually, Focus Con Proby could have been considered a fairly good soft jazz-rock album, if only... it had not bear the name FOCUS!

And if certain P.J. Proby had not sung.

The absence of Jan Akkerman could have been a disaster, perhaps even worse than already witnessed with Mother Focus, but it was not. New guitarists did a nice job introducing jazz elements and improvisation style, while Thijs van Leer provided several nice flute soli in line with his earlier classic works.

Unfortunately, Proby's sweet soul crooner-type voice a la Billy Ocean spoiled the vocal tracks and put this album close to the low points of Mother Focus. Close but still not that low...


P.A. RATING: 2/5
