This "Golden Oldies" album is the FOCUS album I had always wanted to have, but didn't exist. The flute solo in Focus I is so well recorded and played! Songs like Sylvia and the Jethro Tull-like "House Of The King" have found their definite versions. Hocus Pocus opens this album in a completely renewed version, although I have to admit that the yodelling has even deteriorated, comparing to the previous recordings.

2014 album from the Dutch rockers. The album features members Sir Thijs Van Leer, Pierre Van Der Linden, Bobby Jacobs and Menno Gootjes. The album showcases the current line-up's interpretation of classic Focus material, following on from the original recordings' success in the Nike 2010 World Cup advertising and the 2014 reboot of Robocop.

Talk about Focus - Golden Oldies

Simple fellow
I'm not sure if this is the same release I have, because I have a bright orange record and this description says "red"
I bought this new and sealed but the pressing was extremely bad. The vinyl had many straight scratches, probably from the inner. I got a raplacement and it's a little better concerning the sound but still noisy between the tracks. The second record I recieved had had a big scratch all over side one. It snaps and click a lot especially on side two. Pity, they release vinyl records like the one I bought.
