CD Reviews

Friday favorite
Paul E. Nelson | Middleton | 04/27/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Somehow -- the details are forever lost -- I managed to hear a cut from this album ("Streetwalker") when it first came out. Summer of 1978. Living in Massachusetts when radio when still adventurous. I bought a copy as soon as I could get my hands on one. When I moved to Wisconsin that fall, the album became a conversation-stopper whenever I played it for friends. Not just the music, but the Focus/"Hocus Pocus" connection. (Most everyone thought I was joking at first.) Thirty years later, I still listen to this album on a weekly basis. It's the disc that kick-starts every Friday morning at work. It will never grow old."

"A landmark album mixing fusion, disco, rock, prog, jazz, etc into an inspired, enthralling 45 minutes. Amazing guitar. Lush strings. Stunning keyboards. A hot rhythm section. Some guy named Neppy on assorted percussion--and he makes a huge impression throughout. You have nothing else like this in your collection. Truly a must-have."
