Limited nine CD + two DVD (PAL) box set. Please note: the DVDs in this set are PAL format, and will not play on most North American DVD players. Dutch prog rock band Focus has been a household name worldwide for 50 years with hits such as "Hocus Pocus", "House Of The King", "Sylvia", "Tommy" and many others. In honor of this monumental band, Red Bullet Productions presents the boxset: Focus - 50 Years: Anthology 1970-1976, consisting of 9 CDs and 2 DVDs with remasters and never before released material, such as the 'Focus At The Rainbow' concert film from 1973! This box set contains the complete work of Focus as released between 1970 and 1976, the years in which the band featured four of the most talented musicians originating from the Netherlands during the 70s: guitarist Jan Akkerman, keyboard player Thijs van Leer, bass player Bert Ruiter and drummer Pierre van der Linden. In the period 1970-1976, Focus was the first continental European rock group to reach a worldwide audience meanwhile touring extensively in the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia and Japan. The band scored two worldwide hit singles, sold several million albums and was the first Dutch rock group claiming Melody Maker's Brightest Hope award for 1972. One year later, Focus hit the US Billboard charts with two singles and two albums simultaneously. 50 Years: Anthology 1970-1976 is curated by Focus/Jan Akkerman archivist Wouter Bessels and includes long anticipated new remasters of their first seven albums, plus single tracks, alternate mixes, demos, raw studio mixes and previously unreleased live recordings. In addition, two PAL format DVDs contain 4+ hours of audiovisual material from the archives of worldwide TV broadcasting companies, plus the first official and long anticipated release of the 1973 'Focus At The Rainbow' concert movie, carefully remastered from the original 16 mm film.

For me the major attraction of this box are the extra long Eruption live versions .( Lanx 1970 & Rotterdam 1971). The booklet is also very good & detailed. Each cd has a range of bonus tracks.
For me the naming of the box set is bit confusion : 50 YEARS FOCUS - ANTHOLOGY 1970 - 1976.... I guess that means that we can expect a 2nd box set??? ( A bit like Neil Young Archives I and II).
I would say ; run to the shops and get your box before the price doubles !!
The music of Focus has been a part of my life since 1970.
