#166 – The Best of Focus: Hocus Pocus – Focus

Screen Shot 2014-10-23 at 14.10.59 The Best of  Focus: Hocus Pocus – Focus

I would have made a cheap joke about the failed UK based DIY chain but I’m afraid it would have been lost on non-Brits and those under 25. Still, you can do it yourself if you want to.

Focus are one of those eclectic bands that become timeless. Frequently wheeled out to show off the zany 1970 and how wild those times where. Neatly framed to screen off three day weeks, power cuts and winters of discontent.

Still no compilation of Focus music could lack the classics Hocus Pocus and House of the King. If either Jethro Tull or this album don’t make you want to wield a flute as your rock instrument of choice then you have no hope.
