Focus - Moving Waves (1971)

Moving Waves is the 1971 second album by the Dutch band Focus. It includes the hit "Hocus Pocus" which features yodelling and operatic falsetto from Thijs van Leer combined with Jan Akkerman's heavy metal guitar. Even though the sound was highly experimental, it became very successful peaking at #9 in the Dutch Top 40 and later becoming popular in the United States with a #9 position on the Billboard Hot 100 and a #20 position in the UK Singles Chart.The album also features "Eruption" − a 23 minute long adaptation of Jacopo Peri's opera Euridice, which tells the tale of Orpheus and Euridice. Moving Waves was one of the albums in the Isis/Eagle Rock Entertainment television documentary Classic Albums. - Wikipedia
