Biography

Can was an experimental rock band formed in Cologne, West Germany in 1968. Later labeled as one of the first "krautrock" groups, they transcended mainstream influences and incorporated strong minimalist and world music elements into their often psychedelic music.

Can constructed their music largely through collective spontaneous composition –– which the band ... Read more in Amazon's Can Store

12 of 17 people found the following review helpful By Jason Parkes #1 HALL OF FAME on 6 Dec. 2007
Format: Audio CD
This two disc compilation, which like much of Can's back catalogue bar Out of Reach, was originally on cd in the mid 1990s - now it's lovingly remastered and tweaked and definitely worthy of attention. These days Krautrock is very well known, we're a decade or so on from Julian Cope's Krautrocksampler (reprint and annotate from the present day please Mr Cope!)and mungbeans like Kasabian mention Faust now...But if you're not yet acquainted with the wonder that was Can, this two disc Anthology is a pretty decent primer - taking in most of their career and a precursor to the excellent two disc compilation of remixes that tied in with the splendid Can DVD a few years ago.

Can were, for the most part, Holger Czukay, Michael Karoli (RIP), Jaki Liebezeit, and Irmin Schmidt - and of course their two great frontmen, Malcolm Mooney and Damo Suzuki (and Tim Rose was almost a member, as were members of PIL, and then there was that dude Rosco Gee). But Can always seemed to me Czukay-Karoli-Liebezeit&Schmidt - and often were - having a definite chemistry that managed to fuse their respective styles. This sounds easy, but it's surprising how few bands have that - not that it always worked, and apart from 1989's late flower Rite Time, there is quite a bit of debate over the value of the Can output following 1974's Soon Over Babaluma (...though there are some odd great moments, which this compilation captures, as well as some great solo works, notably Czukay's grounbreaking Movies, also reissued in 2007). I'd still recommend getting all the reissues of all Can albums though...they were Can, after all.

Great intro. to the varied world of the highly significant German Art-rockers. Incorporates all of their best work which was popular with many later musicians, particularly those labelled "post-punk".

2 Editions ....This is the 1st 31 Mar. 2013
By JG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is the 1st edition picturing CAN's original singer....great way into the group.The later edition has a different cover for those not sure and boasts remastered sound but nothing wrong with this set which nowadays costs less. My edition is an Austrian import and this set cuts across their entire outing....Their latest Lost Tapes is highly recommended as are their earliest first 6 releases or so in their entirety.
