Review by memowakeman
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars Very nice live performance!

Again i found strange that no one has reviewed this DVD, i am the lucky guy who will tell you the first few words about this release.

After a reunion or back to studio , whatever you wan to call it, Focus released "Focus 8" in 2002 year, an excellent album by the way and which marked a good comeback from one of the prog monsters on the 70`s, the "sad" thing is that we can`t enjoy the talent and exquisite sound of Jan Akkerman`s guitar, instead of him, another good guitarist called Jan Dumee appeared on the album making a great work.

One year later, Focus made a tour and the line up of Focus 8 remained with Thijs Van Leer (who???), Bert Smaak on drums, Jan Dumee on guitars and Bobby Jacobs on bass, so they made some concerts in the US and released a DVD from a concert there called "Focus: Live in America".

It was a pleasure for fans to see a reunion and release of a new album, also a pleasure to see them touring and above all, a pleasure to enjoy their classic music. This DVD features 13 songs, if im not wrong they didn`t include any song from their latest album then "Focus 8" ironically, but they did include some of their most well known and loved songs such as "Eruption", "Sylvia", "La Cathedral de Strasbourgo" and obviously "Hocus Pocus".

For me all the DVD is excellent, beautiful music, symphonic sound at it`s best, jazz touches here and there and rockier pieces that would make you have a nice time, if you are familiar with the band, please watch this video surely you will enjoy it , and if you are not familiar,i would recommend first to listen to their earlier studio albums and then watch this, Thijs Van Leer shows his unique and very talented style.

Besides the songs that i mentioned above, you will find another classic such as "Harem Scarem", "Focus 1" or "House of the King", besides a slice of Van Leer`s flute delicious solo, probably the performance of "Eruption" is my favorite moment here, this is a concert, not a show so dont expect weird things, just sit, relax and enjoy the music.

Excellent DVD, not perfect, recommendable to any prog fan 4 stars!
