This the Focus Holy Grail! Focus - 50 Years: Anthology 1970-1976 consists of 9 CDs and 2 DVDs with remasters and never before released material, such as the 'Focus At The Rainbow' concert film from 1973!

This box set contains the complete work of Focus as released between 1970 and 1976, the years in which the band featured 4 of the most talented musicians originating from the Netherlands during the 70s: guitarist Jan Akkerman, keyboard player Thijs van Leer, bass player Bert Ruiter and
