This is an interesting album which came about after Peter Banks (then the guitarist with YES) saw Jan Akkerman play with FOCUS in Holland and invited him to record some tracks. Akkerman and Banks set up their amps in a recording studio late one night and jammed away for hours on end. The results can be heard on this album which features some great work from Jan, especially on 'Beyond the loneliest sea' and the 13 minute epic 'Stop that!'.

Now available on CD.
