  "Mother Focus" is the fifth studio album by the Dutch band Focus. It was released in 1975 on Atco Records in the United States, and Polydor Records in the UK. Some tracks on the album mark a departure from the progressive rock style that dominated the group's prior work, and herald a funk music style with light pop at the centre.
