Album · 1973 · 6 Songs. Hamburger Concerto: Starter, Rare, Medium I, Medium II, Well Done, One for the Road.

Hamburger Concerto is the crowning achievement of Focus' career. The main appeal here is the record’s consistency, where every new track adds something new to the overall style without tramping the same ground twice. Focus was reinforcing their progressive essence and preparing to rock a bit further than they had done so far; You can tell by the rough sound production for the lead guitar and Hammond organ inputs that Focus was willing to sound tighter. The album begins with Delitae Musicae, a short d intro, which instantly sets the classical mood of the album. Harem Scarem is a strong reminder of the old combination of rocking energy and light humour that had worked so well in Hocus Pocus. The song is of particular note because of its jubilant nature.
