    Fokus

    Hi folks,

    Just wondering, is anyone familiar with the 70`s song Hokus Pokus by the Dutch group Fokus? I really like it- cool, and funny.

    Hej Jette, thanks for responding.

    Couldn`t find anywhere one could listen to it, and I don`t have it. One can read reviews of Focus`s music at amazon, but no free listen.

    This might remind you, or anyone, of this song- it`s a rock tune with yodeling in it.

    With Thijs van Leer and the famous dutch gitarist Jan Akkerman... Thijs also played along with Ayreon on his "Into the electric castle" album. Great album from another great Dutch artist/band/concept.

    Hi there,

    maybe, if you like focus, you could try listening to Ekseption too. Ekseption is also a progressive rock band from the early 70's (and also Dutch).

    Greetzzz,

    Yvw rojo,

    Ayreon is also a fantastic band/concept. Maybe u've heard about it. It's not Focus and it's not early 70's prog symphonic rock, but I think it's wurthwhile to listening to it.

    Greetings from my house on mars (Ayreon),

    MNeMoNiC.
