This album is the soundtrack of the 1969 German film Kamasutra. Astoundingly, this previously well-kept secret is a whole album by Can, recorded in late 1968 before their first album, Monster Movie and, indeed, before they were even called Can - it's credited to Irmin Schmidt & Inner Space Production. If it's been issued before, it's staggeringly rare and certainly hasn't been available in the last 40 years; the discography in The Can Book mentions a single from the soundtrack but not a complete album. The sleeve design does give the impression of being from a real album of the time, however.

While it was recorded at a very embryonic phase of Can's history (one during which they also recorded the stunning "Father Cannot Yell", however) it certainly has its moments. These, for me, include the lengthy "Im Tempel" - unmistakeable and intense Michael Karoli fuzz guitar explores Indian scales, initially backed just by tambura, then the rhythm section get going, albeit at a relatively slow tempo - plus the following "In Kalkutta III". Across the whole album, Karoli, bass player Holger Czukay and drummer Jaki Liebezeit are often easily recognisable, and I'm guessing the flute is played by early member David Johnson; however keyboard player Irmin Schmidt, despite getting the credit, is inaudible throughout and it's unclear if he actually plays on the album. While much of the playing is obviously Can, the music betrays its purpose as soundtrack music, mostly with an Indian theme, and much of it is not very typical of their known output. Actually a lot of the album sounds like an extended entry to their Ethnological Forgery Series, jamming on Indian scales with added flute, tambura etc.

As another reviewer here suggests, the sound is pretty clearly CAN, despite the absence of any musician credits on the box (for some reason)... Anyway, my 5 stars gives my opinion away. It's CAN but with a bit of light-heartedness thrown in. There's even some bluesy harmonica stuff. Really enjoyable and just fun, really. It's been on in the car for a couple of weeks now.

This was a very nice find - a 1969 soundtrack which is actually an early Can album. No musicians are credited on the sleeve so not sure who's playing here but the sound is unmistakable. Being a soundtrack most tracks are instrumental & range from folk & blues to more psychedelic stuff, not exactly a traditional Can album but still very enjoyable & highly recommended to early Can fans. The vinyl pressing is spread over 2 LPs & sounds great (if a bit short in playing time).

HASH(0x91bf8d2c) out of 5 stars Irmin Schmidt - & The Inner Space - 'Kamasutra' (Crippled Dick Hot Wax) 6 Jun. 2010
By Mike Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
As some of you may have not known about this CD, it was originally recorded in 1969, however it wasn't until here recently that the work was FINALLY available to the public. 'Kamasutra' is a wonderfully thought out and produced over-the-top piece of krautrock / experimental - sixteen tracks of Schmidt's songs that are all said to be soundtracks for some lesser-known film works. In short - here are the best soundtracks that you've never heard. Couple of tunes worth mentioning are "I'm Holding My Nightmare", the bluesy "Mundharmonika Beat" and "Indisches Panormama VI" but the more I listen to this disc I soon discover that this is one CD that song titles JUST aren't important - you must take in the entire disc to know what I'm talking about. Only players listed - Irmin Schimdt - composer, Malcolm Mooney and Margarete Juvan - vocals. A must-have.
