DVD material comprises of an In Concert performance of 1974's Hamburger Concerto and a Medley from the band's appearance on UK TV's Old Grey Whistle Test, the performance of course, that helped break Focus in the U.K.

Best remembered for their bizarre chart smash "Hocus Pocus," Dutch
progressive rock band Focus was formed in Amsterdam in 1969 by
vocalist/keyboardist/flutist Thijs van Leer, bassist Martin Dresden, and
drummer Hans Cleuver. With the subsequent addition of guitarist Jan
Akkerman, the group issued its debut LP, In and Out of Focus, in 1970,
earning a European cult following thanks to the single "House of the
King." Dresden and Cleuver were replaced by bassist Cyril Havermanns and
drummer Pierre Van der Linden for the English-language follow-up,
Moving Waves; the record generated the hit "Hocus Pocus," a
hallucinatory epic distinguished by Akkerman's guitar pyrotechnics and
van Leer's demented yodeling. Easily one of the flat-out strangest songs
ever to crack the American pop charts, the single peaked at number nine
in the spring of 1973, by which time Focus had already exchanged
Havermanns for bassist Bert Ruiter and issued their third album, Focus
III, which yielded the minor hit "Sylvia." In the wake of 1974's
Hamburger Concert, the band streamlined the classical aspirations of
earlier efforts to pursue a more pop-oriented approach on records like
Ship of Memories and Mother Focus; though roster changes regularly
plagued Focus throughout the period, none was more pivotal than the 1976
exit of Akkerman, who was replaced by guitarist Philip Catherine for
1978's Focus con Proby, cut with British pop singer P.J. Proby. Focus
then disbanded, with the original lineup reuniting in 1990 for a Dutch
television special.
