Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection.
This self-titled reunion album is fantastic and one of my favorites in the Focus catalog for the same reason that it is mostly ignored: it only features two important members of the original band and the music is based much more in jazz-fusion and heavy new age.

Plus the non-Akkerman Focus releases, with a rejuvenated band helmed by Thijs van Leer, innovative as ever, creating new sounds like no other band can.

A musician of nearly legendary prowess, Jan Akkerman for a time eclipsed Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, and Jeff Beck among reader polls in England as the top guitarist in the world. Akkerman was born in Amsterdam, Holland, and showed his musical inclinations early, taking up the guitar while still in grade school. His taste and interests were extraordinarily wide-ranging, from pop/rock to classical, with room for blues, Latin, and other influences.

Focus is a Dutch rock band. It was founded by classically trained organist/flautist Thijs van Leer in 1969, and is most famous for the songs "Hocus Pocus" and "Sylvia". The band have found renewed fame due to the use of Hocus Pocus as the theme for the Nike 2010 World Cup commercial.

I always read terrible reviews about this album something with I don't agree, of course is not one of their masterpieces, but the quality of the music and the selection of songs is outstanding.
Probably some fans aren't too happy without The House of the King, but the mood of the concert is different to any other band, somehow dreamy and oneiric, with that atmosphere that covers the audience as a thick cloud of mist that covers the listener but instead of suffocating him the music helps to relax (Except of course for Hocus Pocus).

This Jan Akkerman record is a real gem! After firs spin I was convinced this by far his best live album. The material comes mainly from his self-titled record (1977), though Tommy (of the Eruption suite) of Focus is added and two new compositions in the spirit of the self-titled Jan Akkerman album. The recording of this live album is perfect, nothing more can be expected, not even today. For newcomers. Jan Akkerman is ex-guitarist of Dutch prog band Focus.

Maestro Thijs van Leer, together with 3 younger musicians, reformed Focus in 2002, and they bring back the Focus-sound, after all these years. Classic songs like "Hocus Pocus", "House Of The King", "Sylvia" and "Harem Scarem" played Live in the Patriots Theatre, New Jersey, where the USA-fans had the evening of their lives.
Once more the Hammond, played by Van Leer, is present prominent, sounding like in the ol' days! And as usual he plays the flute as well, and again it gives something special to the songs.
