In and Out of Focus is the 1970 debut album by the Dutch band Focus.
The album was initially recorded in 1969 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and subsequently re-recorded in London, UK. For these sessions vocalist/keyboardist Thijs van Leer, bassist Martijn Dresden, and drummer Hans Cleuver---a cabaret trio---were joined by ex-Brainbox guitarist Jan Akkerman.
Generally speaking, the songs on this recording are more pop-oriented than most subsequent Focus releases, though tinges of classical, jazz, and blues styles do come to the fore on certain tracks.
