2009 EU remastered on 180g-Moving Waves is Focus' grand breakthrough album from 1971, hitting off with their huge hit "Hocus Pocus". Undoubtedly the weirdest top 10 song that ever hit the States, the song cemented Focus' stature in Pop / Fusion circles. A killer riff by Jan Akkerman, at the time christened as one of the best guitar players in the world, backed up by thunderous rock drumming, silly yodeling by flutist Thijs van Leer and churchy organ chords - who could have imagined this track would be the seminal Focus song?

The rest of the album is a melting pot of folky rock songs, boasting intricate melodies and harm

Moving Waves is Focus' grand breakthrough album from 1971, hitting off with their huge hit "Hocus Pocus". Undoubtedly the weirdest top 10 song that ever hit the States, the song cemented Focus' stature in Pop / Fusion circles. A killer riff by Jan Akkerman, at the time christened as one of the best guitar players in the world, backed up by thunderous rock drumming, silly yodeling by flutist Thijs van Leer and churchy organ chords - who could have imagined this track would be the seminal Focus song?

The rest of the album is a melting pot of folky rock songs, boasting intricate melodies and harmonies that strike with finesse. Highlights include "Focus II", "Le Clochard" and the title track "Moving Waves", a sensitive piano piece. The B-side consists of a 23 minute suite of progressive space rock called "Eruption" which can match the great progressive music of YES [MOVLP198] and Mike Oldfield.

When starting listening to Focus, Moving Waves is definitely your material of choice!
