Most of the US versions of Focus records were on Sire in the USA. Who else was on Sire? I'm drawing a blank, but I know I have others. Renaissance? Hmmm maybe not...

I love Scruffy the Cat. "You Dirty Rat" is one of my favorite songs ever.

tim from washington:

I saw Scruffy The Cat at an in store show at Vinyl Solution in Grand Rapids MI when I was in 9th grade in 1987 or 88. It was a really formative experience for me. It was my first time seeing a band up close and also the first indie/punk/alternative band I saw. I kept up with the band for a little while after.

I haven't really analyzed that experience until right now. As a 49 year old my preferred way of seeing bands is in intimate non club venues, all ages and accessible to everyone. I wonder if seeing Scruffy the Cat 30+ years ago at my favorite record store planted that seed.

McGroovey:

I'm slightly lying about Focus records, because there's one I'm missing. Whenever I'm in a used record store, I can never remember which one it is, because their records were released on various labels under various titles and different art, and I have most of the songs from the missing album on compilations. I should figure it out.

Yes, I should figure that out.

Side note: there's a RIPPING fast version of Hocus Pocus on one of the Focus outtakes compilations. Not so much yodeling, because it's hard to yodel that fast, I guess. But boffo guitar soloing instead.

Hi Ken,
I’m a local combined media artist. I’m assisting our community groups in Manhattan with spreading the news about the Penn Station Area Development approval from Albany for the Vornado plan to demolish 45-60 buildings and create a business district of office buildings similar to Hudson Yards.
This is a huge task and I live close to Penn Station and have been documenting the breaking news stories as well as almost breaking my arm. It’s only a scratchπŸˆβ€β¬›. I’m on my way to Mt Sinai.
Please see my news feed in Twitter Artssummit _MMC. This week I’m contacting news and media outlets, just pledge to WFMU because S’wonderful prose on the radio waves of universal love.
This week I’m contacting Outfront Media, have been in touch with GreenPeace, (there was even a fire drill at Hotel Penn) CH 11 am seeking media to announce news from Albany leading to final approval of the plans by Vornado.
I’ll be contacting local and international artists and spokes folk.
I have a cosmic connection with my Women’s Action Coalition sorority sister Laurie Anderson. We have a sound bite for the radio from Sharkey with Baby Shark. Her Sharkey Says video is really sharp.
We’re announcing the news for the March 2022 rally, performance and arts event at Penn Station area tentatively titled β€œForever ❀️ NYC β€œ
The next NY .Gov event is 2/22/22 live stream of testimonies.
Links can be found through ESD and MSCC Midtown South Community Council websites.
Please call me any time or contact through social media or email.

I guess the Focus album I'm missing is Focus II, which was called Moving Waves in the US. That was the one with Hocus Pocus. A big chunk of it was also on Live at the Rainbow, the songs that weren't, were on the Ship of Memories and Dutch Masters compilations.

Now you know more than you ever wanted to know about Focus.

There's an article in today's Seattle Times about a Seattle NPR station inadvertently frying Mazda factory stock car radios with it's signal so now it's only station that the cars can get. I highly suggest WFMU figure out how to do this too.

There was a 1972 European compilation called Moving Waves that was not the same as the American (Sire?) Moving Waves, though I think the European Moving Waves did include most of Focus II. The American Moving Waves was the same as Focus II.

So you see my used record store confusion.

Well @clarke, it's not a typical superhero show because no one has super powers. But it does get kind of violent at times (and has a alien plot) so it's likely not your cup of tea. However, the soundtrack (the show's creator has a running streaming playlist) is filled with other gems like Wig Wam.
