3 stars This live album was a disappointment for me in some things. One of the best things is that the band sometimes played with great energy, but in other parts of the album they sound somewhat "nervous" and "out of tune", like Akkerman`s guitar in some places. "Focus II" lacks the mellotron and the piano of the original version, so this live version is not very good. I read that using the mellotron in tours was a real problem for keyboard players in those days, because the instrument was out of tune easily. So maybe Thijs van Leer didn`t use it in this album for this reason.
