Had the pleasure of seeing focus in NYC in '74. The reason we actually went was the opening band -- Gentle Giant. What a night. Both bands were great. If you think those gifs are something, you should see Van Leer`s sweaty, grimacing mug from 4th row-center.
It was a double-bill that made sense, unlike another one I saw also in `74 -- Golden Earring opening for King Crimson at Central Park. We were there for Crimson. Golden Earring played a good set, but it was a Crimson crowd all the way.
