Drop the vocal tracks and you'd have a pretty good album.

Eh, they aren't all that bad and I guess kind of obligatory for 1978. Suitable for airplay on one of those radio stations that had a "jazz" program. In Atlanta it was 94 Q's Jazz Flavors. I don't remember if they played anything off this album or not. But I digress. "Mi ii id night, da aa an cer, uh-uh." (just a little too disco) And hell, You're Still On My Mind could have been a successful pop ballad had it been played on the right stations.

The balance of the tracks on this album are smoking hot jazz rock/fusion, with the exception of Short Film For Nicki, which is a nice mellow piano solo from Joachim. Kuhn seems quite proud of his synthesizer array, four Rolands in all are detailed in the credits. Great cover art for this album. Fits nicely for the music.

Most notable for me was the prescence of Jan Akkerman on guitar, which is ironic because 1976's Springfever has Philip Catherine, who took Jan's place in Focus briefly.
