Boomkat Product Review:
Mute continue their series of live recordings from Krautrock legends Can with this blistering '73 set, one of beloved vocalist Damo Suzuki's final appearances with the band.
1973 was an impressive year for Can. The band followed their treasured 'Ege Bamyasi' with 'Future Days', the album that finally shoved the rock structures to one side and concentrated on texture. But it was the year Damo Suzuki, Can's acrobatic vocalist, would leave the band to marry his girlfriend and dedicate himself to religion. 'Live in Paris 1973' was one of Suzuki's last performances with Can, so it's a treat to hear him echoing over free-floating versions of tracks from 'Ege Bamyasi' ('Spoon' is extended into a 16-minute jam, and 'Vitamin C' stretched to over 13-minutes) plus other rare improvisations.
The Paris performance, recorded at the L'Olympia Theatre, was pieced together from archival tapes in the Spoon vault and material sent in by fans, and was treated and edited by Irmin Schmidt alongside engineer René Tinner.
