By the mid-70's Focus had already run out of steam which was clearly evidenced by the poor Mother Focus. This was followed by the present album which consists of a collection of recordings left over from earlier years. As such, it is almost per definition primarily interesting for fans and collectors. Ship Of Memories merits a couple of listens by the Focus fan, but it is certainly not an album that I will return to on further occasions (except perhaps to hear the flute-driven P's March, the most memorable track here).

Those who enjoyed the band's four first albums (this reviewer included) might find this a decent addition to their collections, but it is by no means up to par with any of those classic albums (or with the band's more recent studio albums for that matter). The style is 100% Focus, but the quality of the material is somewhat lower. While definitely preferable over the previous Mother Focus, Ship Of Memories is still one of Focus' weaker moments.
