During rehearsals for a UK tour with Focus in March 1976, Jan Akkerman left the band. Teaming up again with musicians like Pierre van der Linden and Kaz Lux, Jan recorded 'Eli'. Based on a story that Kaz wrote, with tracks like 'Tranquillizer' and the driving 'Can't Fake a Good Time'. proved that Akkerman made progression since the Brainbox-days. Musicians like Jasper van 't Hof and Rick van der Linden were also very important for the sound that made 'Eli' so unique.
