KRAUTROCK TOP#34 : CAN, Saw Delight (1977)


Ok, everyone here knows CAN, "Tago Mago" at least. But I really wanted to post one album of their totally underated later period, and "Saw Delight" is probably the best one. As you've read it many times in this blog, I'm basically "anti-Tago Mago" : according to me this album does not promote / help krautrock at all, with its useless experimentations and awful guitar solos / noises. Who can seriously hear that? I still don't understand why it appears in the head of the charts...
The CAN I love begins with "Future Days" (previously posted). How do they sound in 1977? Very groovy, sometimes almost "funky" (in their own way), and still inventive in the production and sounds (listen to the masterpiece "Airwaves").
If you don't have it yet, try it " here (192kbps)

Bonjour!
I would absolutely love to download the Elli & Jacno record you posted a few months ago. Any chance you could repost? You would make a fan very happy. Merci! Jerome

Ha ha! OK, I can absolutely sympathize with the antipathy for Tago Mago... but Saw Delight? Really? That's just plain perverse. ;)

Keep up the awesome work! I've been enjoying your take on the subject, and you've been spot-on.

Keep on posting some comments, it's always really appreciated!
I won't post "Saw Delight" again, if the owners of the rights have deleted it I understand and respect it.
But, ok, I will re-post Eli&Jacno!

"The owners of the rights" ! LOL !

Kudos for giving proper recognition to Saw Delight, the most under-rated of all Can albums in my humble opinion.

This album is laced with wonderful, African inspired rhythms, and it grooves to a lush-yet-motorik beat.

Cheers,
