4 stars Focus in a live setting gives just some more energy then in the studio setting. The song selection for this live record is good and the production is just fine. The songs are often played a bit faster then the studio versions. Something one may expect of Focus are long jams, but this is not the case: the solo's are the same as we were used to.

"Hocus Pocus" is Focus' greatest hit. On this live record they play this song in the last phase of the concert. After the final track "Sylvia" a reprise of "Hocus Pocus" emerges to please the fans.

While this concert offers no new material or extended jams, I still think this is a real nice addition to a prog collection, because of the energy released in this live setting and good song selection. This record is advised for sympho prog fans. 3,75 stars.
