Thanks for liking "Thank You". S:^) I had serious doubts about the track
when it first made it to the tribute project (back when the tribute album
was supposed to be 1-CD only, and I was risking being cut off from the
project because I hadn't recorded the song professionally), but now that
several people have expressed their liking for the track, you can say I'm
quite happy and satisfied about it (...about Gentle-Giant Tribute).
And as for Focus, you're telling me news (and great news at that!). I think
your best bet would be to check www.akkernet.com , Jan Akkerman's official
home page. I'm going there shortly myself just to find out. This would be
great if it's true!!!
Ah, well, thanks again for the letter and have a great summer (hopefully

Nice to hear from you.
Yes the rumour is true and Focus have already made some new demo tapes and
sent them to Mike Veron in England. Apparently they sound like the early
Focus cica 1972/73.
I will keep you informed of developments.
Dear Mr. Mantovani -- have been trying to track down CD reissues of FOCUS'
back catalogue, and so far the only ones I have been able to locate are the
first three albums. I assume that the rest of these albums are all available
in Europe (or elsewhere). Any suggestions on companies I might be able to
contact to obtain these items? Thanks for any input you may have.
Sincerely, Doug Miner
Did you know that Focus have reformed with Thijs van Leer, Bert Ruiter,
Hans Cleuver and Wiliam van Dike on guitar.
Let me know if you want more details.

Just came across your web site on Focus. Excellent! I've been
a fan of the group since the beginning. I've manage to collect all
the cd's except for 'Mother Focus'!
You know of an outlet where I can get this one. Thanks Dude!
Your site mentions this video as being available. Can you E-mail me
with specifics? Thanks.
I was just wondering if you were interested in perusing an unfinished Focus
home page of mine...

Hi Rodrigo Mantovani,
I've just heard that EMI has remastered the Hamburger Concerto and that
it's now available on CD. Do you know where I could order the album?
" The Truth Is Out There "
Rodrigo - Thanks for a spectacular job on your web page! I am in search of
some of van Leer's later solo work. I have "O My Love", his CBS jazz LP,
and all 3 introspection titles, plus his Christmas album (in the US it came
out 2LP, with a few solos with Elly Ameling.
I'd like a source in the Netherlands who can help me buy these and other Van
Leer albums on CD - especially the Christmas release.
Can you help me?
I also notice that there are a couple of Jan Akkerman web pages - you might
want to add these to your hot links.

Meus gradessissimos parabens por essa página do Focus. Grande trabalho. Eu
sou aqui do Rio de Janeiro, meu nome é Aloisio Campelo e eu tenho uma banda
que toca covers de Pink Floyd e musicas proprias na linha progressiva
(Focus e sem duvida uma grande influencia). Outra coincidencia e o Dan
Barrett ter revisado seu texto. Eu tenho mantido bastante contato com ele
pois minha banda tem uma musica no tributo a Gentle Giant que deve sair em
breve. Ah ! Eu tinha uma banda mezzo prog/mezzo rock anos 70 que tocava
Sylvia e Hocus Pocus (eu até tenho isso gravado). Modestia a parte ate que
Bem, por enquanto é isto Saudacoes progressivas
