FOCUS Mark Their Jubilee With A Live Set

Perhaps, it’s a tad untimely for FOCUS to celebrate the band’s 50th anniversary in 2021, given that their first line-up got formed in 1969, but who cares, really, when there’s a cause and a way? While the collective’s "Anthology" provided the chance to look into the past, “Focus 50: Live In Rio” – another box set, scheduled for release on April 30th – offers a look into the future, despite the fact that the concert set captured here was recorded in 2017. The 4-disc collection has not only this show, presented on two CDs and Blu-ray, but also a CD titled “Completely Focussed” which gathers all the numbered “Focus” pieces – each of the group’s albums, bar one, contain such a track – recut by today’s collective during lockdown.
