CAN is perhaps the most important and influential band to have emerged out of the 'Kraut Rock' scene in Germany in the 1970s. Based in Köln, the band released several albums throughout the 1970s on EMI (most since re-released on CD format on Can's own Spoon Records).
The lineup stayed more or less consistent with HOLGER CZUKAY, IRMIN SCHMIDT, JAKI LIEBEZEIT and MICHAEL KAROLI. The wild card seemed to be their singer, the first of which, MALCOM MOONEY, left after their first album. His place was taken by DAMO SUZUKI, and it was this lineup that produced most of their albums throughout the 1970s. By 1977, Damo had joined a religious sect and REEBOB KWAKU BAAH and ROSKO GEE, who had just left TRAFFIC, joined CAN. In 1978, HOLGER CZUKAY left the band, and it was this incarnation that recorded 'Out Of Reach'. After this album, CZUKAY returned to the fold as editor of their last album 'Inner Space', after which the band split up. In 1989, the band reformed briefly, including original singer MALCOM MOONEY, producing one more studio album, 'Rite Time'. ,Out Of Reach' is their 1978 album, and the only of their albums not re-released on CAN's own Spoon Records, making it previously one of the most mysterious and hard to get of all Can albums. Features all seven of the original tracks, remastered, complete with original artwork and very extensive liner notes.
