Product Description

an internet review: "Super-eerie and disturbingly bloodthirsty. The band sold out to lite funk almost immediately after this was recorded, so do not pass this up at any cost, unless you listen to Arcade Fire or something. Most of this disc was recorded live at the infamous 1972 "Can Free Concert," which has been highly circulated on video forever.

The first song, a slowed-down "Paperhouse" (with a "Mushroom" intro) exemplifies the album as a whole; this track would be perfect for use in Gitmo to break down prisoners & make 'em sing (as in: tell secrets, not as in: croon). It is a slow-burning aural massacre. The most frightening part of this song is the repeated mantra "I can hardly SLEEP AT NIGHT" (not foud in the album version) followed by a key shift + extended feedback/drone guitar & drum solo at the 4:30 mark. Even the throwaway pop single "Spoon" is given a 12-minute remake into a fierce prowler. The only nonessential song is the rarity "Love Me Tonight." The freewheeling 28-minute version of "Pinch" (from '73) will test even Can diehards.

To point out that Jaki's drumming is awesome on this goes without saying.

In short, one of the most hallucinatory, and fearlessly-bold, recordings I have ever heard. You can feel rock being ripped right from its very placenta into a new realm. Every audience member's jaw at this concert must have been nailed to the floor for the duration of the gig. Basically, this is what Bitches Brew wishes it sounded like (or what diehard devotees of Bitches Brew try to brainwash people into thinking it sounds like).

I would not be surprised if Godspeed You Black Emperor or Rake formed after their members sat around a campfire one night and blasted this really loudly and were all imbued with its raw power."
