About this item

Can – The Singles, a brand new collection of all of the band’s single releases, on triple vinyl and CD.

This unique document is the first time the singles have been presented together and shows the breadth of their influential career, from well loved tracks like Halleluwah, Vitamin C and I Want More to more obscure and sought after singles such as Silent Night and Turtles Have Short Legs.

The tracks are all presented in their original single version, many of which have been unavailable for many years and not presented outside of the original 7" release.

The triple vinyl comes packaged in a trifold sleeve and decorated with a beautiful spot gloss lamination and is designed by the award winning Julian House from Intro, a long time design collaborator of Can's.

The CD and download versions of the album serve as the perfect easy entry point to the world of Can for the uninitiated and are priced accordingly.
The vinyl serves as a wonderful document to this corner of the Can world for the hardcore fan and is an often overlooked area of the band's career.

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Once described by my colleague Mandy (names have been changed for confidentiality) as a bunch of German druggies each playing a different song, Can have a reputation for the eccentric (or eclectic, or insane). It may surprise some then that the Kosmische legends were more than capable of knocking up killer pop tunes, 23 of which feature here. Alongside big tracks like the b-boy classic ‘Vitamin C’ and wavy Krautfunk great ‘I Want More’, we also get to sample some lesser known sounds like the bluesy blinder ‘She Brings The Rain’ and the infectious idiocy of ‘Turtles Have Short Legs’.
