Can – “Connection” (1969)

can-unlimited-edition
When Can wasn’t on the road, the legendary krautrock pioneers spent their time tirelessly experimenting away in their studio, Inner Space, located in a a century old German castle (and later in a converted cinema). Unlimited Edition, released in 1976 as an expanded version of 1974’s Limited Edition, culls unreleased songs and instrumental jams recorded at the coveted studio spaces between the years 1968-1976 featuring both of the group’s main singers (Damo Suzuki and Malcolm Mooney). Among the odds and ends, of particular interest are the early 1969 tracks recorded with Malcolm Mooney as vocalist—thought to be unreleased cuts from the Monster Movie sessions—”The Empress and the Ukraine King,” “Mother Upduff,” “Connection,” and “Fall of Another Year.” Just imagine how these tracks would have sounded in place of some of the lengthier cuts that wound up on the group’s debut.

  1. Hello,

    Big fan of the blog and love checking out the music picks.

    Random non-music question as I’ve seen on Twitter that you’re from Toronto. My wife and I are heading to Toronto for 4 days at the beginning of April and know pretty much nothing about the city. Can you recommend a good area for us to stay and other places that may be fun to visit while we’re there? Doesn’t have to be music based. (Sorry to leave this is in the comments, but couldn’t find your email address anywhere).

    Thanks!
