This long out-of-print Double DVD package from the pioneering 70’s Kraut-Rock innovators CAN is available again… and at a fantastic new lower price!

CAN was formed by ex-student of Stockhausen Irmin Schmidt, who, fired by the sounds of Jimi Hendrix and Frank Zappa abandoned his career in classical music to form a group which could utilise and transcend all boundaries of Ethnic, Electronic Experimental and Modern Classical Music.
The scope of artists who in recent years have cited CAN as a major influence is varied from John Lydon to RADIOHEAD, and the FALL to PORTISHEAD.

‘Can Free Concert’ was filmed by Robbie Müller and directed by Peter Przygodda – a film of a show, which took place in front of 10,000 spectators in Cologne in 1972.

‘Can Notes’ is a film compiled by Peter Przygodda, who edited most of Wim Wenders’ films and uses intimate, ‘behind the scenes’ footage, including images from the CAN Solo Projects Tour, taken by group manager Hildegard Schmidt from 1997 onwards.

The classic ‘Can Documentary’ covers the entire history of the band including classic and rarely seen TV performances.

The extras also contain Four 5.1 Surround Mixes – ‘Half Past One’ by Irmin Schmidt, ‘Below This Level’ by Jaki Liebezeit and ‘Get The Can’ and ‘Smoke’ by Holger Czukay - plus filmed studio footage of the remix process; a Short Film made by Brian Eno to mark CAN’s Echo Lifetime Achievement Award and footage from the Echo Awards ceremony itself including Herbert Groenemeyer’s introductory speech.

‘DVD’ is released on 24th June 2013.
