5.0 out of 5 stars why doesn't everyone just love Can?, 3 Oct. 2010
This review is from: Anthology (Audio CD)
At university a friend told me about the Can track Yoo Doo Right, which is over twenty minutes long, and pretty much repeats the same line throughout. I was impressed by the perversity and daftness of the whole idea of it, and bought quite a few Can LPs over the years. With the advent of CDs, the old LPs went up the loft and it was only recently that I bought this impressive collection.

I was struck by just how well I knew tracks, they had stuck firmly in my head. To my ears they have not dated at all, wonderful lush rhythms, not sparse but luxuriant and jazzy. These people really can play, Yoo Doo Right is supposedly taken from a massive jam session, and I suspect that most of these songs were. These are not love songs, or pretentious songs. One song ends with the sound of a dog barking.

Approach these songs with an open mind and a sense of humour and you should find much to enjoy. Particular favourites are Hoolah Hoolah, Dizzy Dizzy and Below this Level, though Outside the Door is well worth checking out, it is a supremely exhilarating and exciting track. I would caution that the later material is rather slight compared to the imagination and sheer oddness of the earlier stuff.

If you like this, then the Holger Czukay album Movies (1979) [VINYL] is well worth checking out if you can find a copy.
