@MrBouzouki
Glad you liked it.
At the time, I was less enthusiastic, preferring Brainbox over Focus.
They had Kaz Lux doing the vocals and no Thijs Van Leer. The no Thijs being an enormous plus for me.

I hope you will give Brainbox 50 years later a chance.
As I am typing this, the love of my life hands me ‘the autobiography’, by Johnny Marr.
As the less is more idea completely escapes Jan Akkerman’s perception, Johnny Marr seems to be happy that way.

Another rambling post by me? Yes, you are sooooo right.
Lovely thread though.
Kind regards, Gus
