Limited orange vinyl. The first release in the "CAN : Live Series"! Using the most advanced technology, after 46 years, the astonishing sound has been revived here: !!!! A different perspective from the studio album is revealed! CAN first appeared on the underground scene in Cologne in 1968, and although few early recordings remain, they have toured Europe (especially Germany, France and the UK) tirelessly since 1972, attracting many bootleggers as their legendary performances became known. As their legendary performances became known, many bootleggers came to see them. Under the supervision of Irmin Schmidt and René Tigner, "CAN: The Live Series" presents a selection of the best of these recordings, bringing these important and historical records to you using the most advanced technology available. As novelist and famous CAN fan Alan Warner says, "Their live performance tells an epic story. It's like a novel with different chapters, varied moods, weather, seasons, and exotic landscapes. Formed in the late 60s and disbanded a little over a decade later, CAN's unprecedented and daring marriage of hypnotic grooves and avant-garde instrumental textures is one of the most important in history, revealing a completely different side of the band. In the jam, familiar themes and phrases ripple momentarily through the swirling sound, reaching a much wider realm than studio recordings, until the extraordinary moment of sonic meltdown.
