Can Live in Stuttgart 1975

Mute Records bring out ‘Live In Stuttgart 1975’ by Canas a triple album set on the 30th May. “Live in Stuttgart 1975” is the first of a curated series of Can live concerts available in full for the first time on vinyl, CD and digitally. Originally recorded on tape, these carefully restored live albums will comprise the entirety of each show in the format of a story with a beginning, middle and end, with Can’s performances taking on a life of their own.

Mute and Spoon previewed the release with an excerpt from “Stuttgart 75 Eins,” the first track on the album. (With their freeform performance style, Can didn’t really have setlists, so Live in Stuttgart 1975 has been segmented into five sections, numbered and titled one through five in German.) The clip finds Can in the throes of an extended jam, drummer Jaki Liebezeit anchoring the performance with a beat that swings with pinpoint precision, while the bass, keys, and guitar follow each other down an array of unexpected and clever paths.

Live in Stuttgart 1975 and the rest of the installments in the Can live series were taken from the best bootlegged recordings available, then mixed and mastered using 21st-century technology. Founding Can member Irmin Schmidt and the band’s longtime producer/engineer Rene Tinner helmed the project.

Per a release, the Can live series will offer a unique perspective on the band. Again, with the group’s freeform approach in mind, the live albums will feature some familiar themes, riffs, and motifs from the Can discography, but also plenty of material — like the blown-out sonic meltdowns Can nicknamed “Godzillas”  that never appeared in their studio work.

Mute and Spoon Records have announced plans to release a series of live albums by CanLive in Stuttgart 1975 is out May 28th. In addition to digital and CD releases, a 3xLP set is being pressed to orange vinyl.

The Can Live series of releases are culled from the group’s best bootleg recordings, which were remastered and engineered under the supervision of founding Can member Irmin Schmidt and producer/engineer Rene Tinner.
