German band Can never recorded an official live album. The group’s intentions to capture their singular live sets were often thwarted by faulty equipment or other complications. But, in October 1975, dedicated fan Andrew Hall snuck recording gear into a Can show in Stuttgart, resulting in a widely-circulated bootleg of the band at the peak of its powers. The initial recording’s sound has been cleaned up by Can co-founder Irmin Schmidt and is now available as an official release, Live in Stuttgart 1975. We’ll hear music from that album as well as selections from R.L. Burnside’s Burnside on Burnside set, recorded live in Portland, Oregon.
