Focus Three was a sole-45 studio project that was organized by renown producer Derek Lawrence (Deep Purple, Pretty Things). Assisting with the effort was conductor/arranger Del Newman and his strings orchestra. The tracks were laid down at Abbey Road Studios in 1967. The excellent and soulful '10,000 Years Behind My Mind' appears on the A-side of the record and was written by Tony Wilson, Larry Steel and Liza Strike. Steel provided the lead vocals while Strike provided female backup vocals. Strike later went on to provide backup vocals for a number of Elton John's early 70s LPs and also Pink Floyd's 'Dark Side Of The Moon' LP.
