The album that boosted Focus into at least semi-fame outside of continental Europe, Moving Waves blasts off with their hit single, "Hocus Pocus. Built around a killer guitar hook by Jan Akkerman and a series of solo turns by the band, this instrumental replaced "Wipeout" as a staple of FM radio. The bizarrely hilarious vocal and accordion solos by Thijs van Leer - one of which absurdly concludes with rousing stadium cheers - have to be heard to be believed.

Their debut album Focus Plays Focus (1970) gained little attention, but their follow-up album Moving Waves (1971), and its lead single "Hocus Pocus", earned the band international recognition. Their success continued with Focus 3 (1972) and Hamburger Concerto (1974), the former containing their second hit single, "Sylvia". A mix of pop-oriented songs and instrumentals were recorded for the album; van Leer felt the vocals suffered as a result of singing English lyrics with a foreign accent, which inspired the group.

Moving waves, the wind has left you And you are still in commotion Moving waves, the wind has left you And you are still in commotion We are still repeating the word it has taught us It moves our whole being to ecstasy Waves, why do you only come excited and then all come together? Because behind our individual action there is one impulse working Because behind our individual action there is one impulse working Rising Waves, what motive is behind your impulse? What motive is behind your impulse? The desire to reach upwards.

Moving Waves owes its unique character to the friction between Akkerman and van Leer as the band’s primary songwriters, something that continued to play out in increasingly dramatic fashion on the band’s 1972 double LP, Focus III
