|Focus Focus 3 Limited 180gram Yellow Audiophile 2LP Set
The third album by Dutch progressive rock group Focus was originally released in 1972 simply called III. While their Moving Waves album contained the international hit song "Hocus Pocus", this 3rd album contained another worldwide hit "Sylvia". The single reached #4 in the U.K. and #33 on the U.S. charts. The album also contained the 1970 track "House of the King", previously released as a single.
With this 2009 reissue we proudly present the album in audiophile quality on 180 gram vinyl. For the first time ever, the epic composition "Anonymus II" is included in its entirety (over 26 minutes long) on 1 LP side. The U.S. single version of "Hocus Pocus" and an edited version of "Anonymus" are added as bonustracks.
Like the recent reissue of the Moving Waves LP, the sleeve is glossy embossed. Over 35 years after its original releases, Focus III sounds & looks better than ever before.
