Zingje Moers Taal
LP released to support the Dutch Litterature Week in 1976. Several Dutch artists and bands, including Focus with the song Avondrood. The lyrics of the Focus song is written by Jules Deelder.

Gary Brady (http://focustheband.blogspot.no) about this song:

Persistent rumours suggest that he (Jan Akkerman) sings on I need a bathroom (Mother Focus) and (with van Leer) on O Avondrood prepared for patriotic Dutch 1976 compilation, Zing je Moorstaal. (O Avondrood is a setting of a Dutch poem. Its staccato lines read:
O evening glow, glow of flames
O massacre in the west
O late rose, Empty box
O mortal remains, etc).

O Avondrood is best known without the vocal as Red sky at night (Ship of Memories).

The LP cover contains a comprehensive booklet with lyrics and illustrations).
