Thumbs up hocus pocus by focus

Does anyone remember this song? ['Hocus Pocus' by Focus] There is a live version on youtube recorded in the early 70's on a pop show and they were introduced by Roberta Flack [?]. Anyway, the musicianship is AWESOME!! The song is bonkers, the singer is a few sandwiches short of a picnic, but it always puts a smile on my face. Check out the drumming; fantastic. The guitarist squeezes out some fresh shapes too. If you've never seen it before, you owe it to yourself to check it out.

REMEMBER IT ??? Still listen to it religiously.
Jan Akkerman is one of the all-time great guitarists and has put out some sensational solo work. Keyboardist/flutist/yodels/vocals...from Thijs Van Leer were crazy cool. They reformed a few years back and have done some prog fests, though Akkerman is no longer with them.
Saw them live at the "Academy of Music" in NYC once, and was floored.

Wow - blast from the past (for me) but obviously the band is still going strong

My fave track was 'Sylvia' (one of the first singles I bought).

Here's a video of Sylvia leading into
Hocus Pocus by Focus (classic! )
