For those not yet hipped to the essential glories of Can, here’s the ideal introduction: on three LPs or one (huge?) CD, a taste of the mezmerizing, controlled freedom of this band. The music Can made is a genre unto itself, an amalgamation of rock, electronic music, the 1960’s classical avant-garde, poetry, and improvisation. They were entirely of their time, and the music they made stands entirely out of time.
