Focus con Proby is the seventh studio album by the Dutch rock band Focus, released in 1977 on EMI Records. It features five tracks with vocals from American singer P. J. Proby. The record also features guitarists Eef Albers and Philip Catherine, drummer Steve Smith, as well as the two Focus members from previous albums.
Ship Of Memories" is an interesting short synth-drum tune by drummer Pierre van der Linden. Finally, you get the short uptempo USA-released single version of "Hocus Pocus" which really burns and it great to have on CD. Great stuff, this CD - a nice mix of the Focus styles with no 30-minute-long "opus" tracks, yet with all the passion and virtuosity that the band was known for. The Red Bullet release of this CD sounds great. 1973 was a difficult time for Focus. Near the end of 1972, they released Focus 3, which spawned a minor hit with "Sylvia". In 1973, they released a live album (Live at the Rainbow), but there were tensions mounting with the band. Jan Akkerman was not in the best of moods (often refusing to speak to the other band members), Pierre van der Linden wasn't in the best of moods either. They were to record a followup to Focus 3, but was scrapped at the time.
