CAN - MIDNIGHT

This months posts are dedicated to Jaki Liebezeit.





















01. Full Moon On the Highway
02. Vernal Equinox
03. Hunters and Collectors
04. Transcendental Express
05. Private Nocturnal
06. Midnight Men
07. Ibis


Opinions differ over the 1975 offering from Can; 'Landed' certainly feels like the first album that isn't flat out great. The band made a lot recordings in 1975 and this was an attempt to assemble an alternative album from that period.

'Full Moon on the Highway' and 'Hunters and Collectors' are from the original 'Landed' album.

'Transcendental Express' and 'Ibis' are from 'Unlimited Edition'.

'Private Nocturnal' and ' Midnight Men' are from 'The Lost Tapes'.

'Vernal Equinox' is a live recording from 'The Old Grey Whistle Test', broadcast on thee BBC, 1975.

As all these guys are shuffled off one by one into the other room, and we gradually take up their vacated positions, I can't help feeling lost, and sad. Who are we to look up to now? I guess that's how they felt, at a much younger age, growing up after the war, fatherless. Pfff..

Thanks for the tunes.
