TotD: Focus – Sylvia

Focus, a Dutch band that dates back to the late 1960s and early 1970s. Part of what some refer to as the ‘sympho scene’, and characterised by the frantic organ and flute playing of Thijs van Leer, and the equally maddening guitar they delivered many classic progressive rock tracks, such as Hocus Pocus, House of the King and Harem Scarem. Today’s track of the day is het middle road between all of these, with guitar madness, organ craziness and the charateristic yodeling of Thijs van Leer: Sylvia.
