I heard 'hocus pocus' for the first time today. What in the name of fuck......


Jan Akkermans solos are awesome in it. Are Focus a good band or was hocus pocus their only good song? I'm wondering if it's worth buying an album.

Yeah, i guess so. But it's still irritating buying an album and realising its absolute shit

I played on a record about 14 years ago that did a cover of that.We sampled all the flute and yodelingbut played the rest. We got a copy of the album that song was on and nothing else on that album sounded like it. They actually put that song on as a joke from whatI heard form their manager. And the rest is history as they say...

Here's a second generation copy of our version...

Thanks mab! That was way back when samplers costed thousands. I think it was a Dynacord Add2 (?). I'd love to remix it in the digital world and push the guitars a bit hotter.
