This review is from: Delay (Audio CD)
Despie the title,most of "Delay 1968" was recorded in 1969,just before "Monster Movie".If you're more used to the later Can (Damo Suzuki and beyond),this is a bit of an eye-opener.Just as adventurous as the later Can,but a very different rockier sound,with the exception of one instrumental based on a sax solo.
Lyrics are very funny and playful-especially "Little Star of Bethlehem" and "19th Century Man"-Malcolm Mooney has never sounded better.
All in all,great introduction to Can,either early or late,and it may suprise newcomers to Can who hear them constantly hailed as innovators-this music is based on blues and rock,not Stockhausen,and it's possibly one reason it's so good.Recommended,and after this,try "Monster Movie" and "Soundtracks",the rest of this era of Can
