Personnel: Jan Akkerman - Guitar; Thijs Van Leer - Keyboards, Flute and Vocals; Bret Ruiter- Bass Guitars; Pierre Van Der Linden - Drums.

Notes: This soundboard recording comes to us as a second generation source. Still, the quality was outstanding. The main problem with the recording was the frequent clicks and pops heard throughout. These were eliminated using both automatic and manual techniques. The tonality also needed adjustment. The bass and sub-bass components were quite deficient and needed a boost. A small correction to the upper treble region was also made. Because this was an in-studio live recording from the soundboard, the sound lacked ambience. Some have described this type of sound as “dry”. To make the recording sound a bit more “Live” a small amount of echo was added. This helps to give the auditory perception of a concert hall or theater. A few other small flaws such as track gaps and bumps were found and removed (PRRP Staff) . Taken from

It's not Bret Ruiter but Bert Ruiter! In my time I have been to many a fine Focus concert.

This blog is merely an index with public links for audio recordings of independent origin (ROIO) which have not been officially released. No audio or video content is hosted here. We only provide meta information files for the ROIOs. If you're an artist (or a legal representative of an artist or its estate) and you don't want your ROIOs shared on this blog for FREE among your fans, you may opt out any time by sending e-mail to the site admin. We will then put you in our list of not allowed artists. This will halt all sharing of your ROIOs in this blog within minutes. BTW, the ROIOs exist, you can't make them vanish. So, why not let your fans get them for free from one another instead of having to purchase them from commercial bootleggers on auction sites?
