4 stars Focus non-Proby.

Jan Akkerman is out and Philip Catherine is in. And for those who liked Focus Con Proby except for the presence of P. J. Proby's vocals, here's a nice set of tunes post Akkerman, who is missed, yet Catherine is not too shabby of a replacement either. For those of you who didn't like Mother Focus's lite jazz style, the music here is somewhat of a rebound. Still jazzier than the earlier albums, but most of the liteness that was present on MF is gone.

What really makes this album worth having is that in addition to two tracks that made it to Con Proby, two classic Focus tracks, you get another five new pieces which have never made an appearance on any Focus studio albums. I'd recommend this one over Live AT The Rainbow.
