An unusual Japanese book on the music of the genius German group Can
– one that's half history, half discography – including a fair bit of listings for later projects and related works by members of the group! If you can
't read Japanese, there's not much for you in the first half of the book – save for a lot of great black and white photos – but the second half begins a disc guide section, with listings first for all the Can
albums, then with sections on records from Irmin Schmidt, Holger Czukay, Jaki Leibezeit, Michael Karoli, Damo Suzuki, Malcolm Mooney, Rosko Gee, Reebop Kwaku Baah, and a bonus disc guide of 100 related releases! Every record has the title in English or German, with label, release date, and titles in English – plus a longer review in Japanese. Book is 230 pages, softcover, with mostly black and white images, and a few in color.
