  • Includes 4 page booklet

The acclaimed CAN live series continues with the release of LIVE IN ASTON 1977, available via Mute and Future Days (the new EU label created by Spoon Records).

The series was overseen by founding member Irmin Schmidt and producer/engineer René Tinner, who delicately worked on restoring the archival recordings to the best quality for current modern technology. This record captures the band’s 1977 performance in Aston and features Schmidt (keyboard & synths), Jaki Liebezeit (drums), Michael Karoli (guitars), Holger Czukay (wave receiver & spec.sounds), plus Rosko Gee (bass), who appears for the first time in the series.

This release features sleeve notes by former Sex Pistol, Glen Matlock, sharing his first-hand experience of witnessing CAN's live show.

LIVE IN ASTON follows the release of LIVE IN PARIS 1973, the first in the series to feature Damo Suzuki’s vocals [“...among the greatest documents of their untouchable alchemy...” – Record Collector 5*]; LIVE IN BRIGHTON 1975 [“Pure dynamite… keep them coming” – MOJO]; LIVE IN STUTTGART 1975, [Uncut’s Reissue of the Year, #2 in MOJO’s Reissues of the Year, #7 in The Wire’s Archive Reissues of the Year plus more]; and LIVE IN CUXHAVEN 1976, which again featured heavily in the Reissues of the Year.
