Can post Babaluma

Any good? I'm not familiar bar the odd song I dig like All Gates Open or A Spectacle.

I like the three albums that came after Babaluma more than that album itself.

'All Gates Open' is my fave but 'Full Moon On The Highway' is another highlight. There's a live version on YT but it's rubbish. But this is worth a few seconds of your time!



aren't they lovable?


and of course there's the HIT SINGLE:



and this nice thing from Whistle Test (I think):





Some of the very early stuff is REALLY good - worth going backwards as well as forwards!

That's the only one I like off that collection.

These two are magnificent - almost as good as early VU, as far as I'm concerned.

Babaluma was the first one I heard. Gave me a really mistaken impression of what they were like. I like it now, but it's all mood. It's possibly their least exciting record. (Better than some of the later ones, of course - just more meditative. That's part of what they do, but that's the only record where it's pretty much all they do.)

I saw the Rockpalast-gig from which Don't Say No was culled... Absolutely fantastic.

I've heard a fair amount of that stuff, it's got its moments but doesn't grab me like everything up to Future Days does.

Another fan of Landed here, but no, it's not really in the same league as the pre-'74 stuff for me.

Pretty much my opinion too. Out of Reach is the only truly bad one but Saw Delight is also one to be wary of, some of it sounds like bad Santana (the album title is a terrible pun too). The self-titled one is surprisingly not bad considering the dross that came before it. It includes both All Gates Open and A Spectacle.

Soon Over Babaluma (1974) *****
Landed (1975) *****
Flow Motion (1976) ***
Saw Delight (1977) **
Out of Reach (1978) - (this album, being the only Can album that features no input from Holger Czukay (as its 1979 followup Can had some editing by Czukay, has been disowned by the band in recent years as it is not listed as part of Can's discography on their official website, and was not remastered on CD in the 1990s, nor was it reissued on Super Audio CD in the mid-2000s as all the other Can studio albums were)
Can (1979) *** (Former bassist Holger Czukay's involvement with this album was limited to tape editing.) For me, essential for the tracks "All Gates Open", "Safe", "Sunday Jam", "Sodom" and "A Spectacle".
Delay 1968 (1981) **** Recorded 1968, released 1981. A compilation album of early outtakes of Can's work with singer Malcolm Mooney, including some of the band's earliest material. Holger Czukay has said that Delay 1968 was originally intended to be the band's first album and would have been titled Prepared to Meet Thy PNOOM ("Pnoom" being the name of the album's second track—a 27-second saxophone instrumental, recorded as part of their Ethnological Forgery Series). When no record company would release the record, Can set out to make a somewhat more accessible album, which became their 1969 debut Monster Movie.
Rite Time (1989) *** For some reason I like it, probably for nostalgic reasons, nice to hear Malcolm again, with the band.
