Synopsis

Album Description
Japanese Pressing. This album features a number of songs that are mere snippets, like the vaguely tribal-sounding 'Blue Bag', while one tune, the 20-minute 'Cutaway', from 1969, is a sprawling pastiche of oddities. Five cuts are listed as part of the band's continuing Ethnological Forgery Series, on which they recreate or interpret a variety of world musics through their own vision. The majority of songs come from 1968-1971. This 19 track re-issue of the 1976 original release has been remastered and comes packaged in a paper sleeve. Vine. 2005.

Bacon sandwich

(5 out of 5 stars)

"this is a most remarkable album. very very funny--for me one of the main criteria in judging a record. So much variety--but tongue always planted most firmly in cheek. These blokes are hilarious. Listen to this album first thing in the morning with a bacon sandwich (plenty of HP sauce on) and a steaming mug of strong tea. I did and have not been the same since."
Unlimited pleasure

"Buying this record, you can delight with three different phases of this fantastic band: Malcolm Mooney Era (incredible black american vocalist), Damo Suzuki (fantastic japanese vocalist) and Quartet Era (no vocalists, but pretty cool too). If you want go into the carreer of this group, check out "Monster Movie" and "Tago Mago", the two best albuns by theirselves."
Mostly for Committed Fans

"This is Can's scraps. Their scraps are not better than other people's best efforts. Most of the music here is dispensible.Even at a reduced price (the original 2-LP set sold cheaply, and here it's on a single CD) it's no great shakes. I listen to it and shake my head. The full-length "Doko E" (never legitimately released) goes on well over the length of an LP side and gathers momemntum brilliantly. Here, it's reduced to an abstract snippet. Why?Can fans will want the tracks cut with Malcolm Mooney that are on here, though. "Connection" and "Fall of Another Year" are brilliant, and "The Empress and the Ukraine King" is pretty good."
