Can‘s discography has been reissued on vinyl in the past — including last year’s Can box set (which goes for upwards of $470) — but it’s been a bit tricky to track down a lot of their albums in LP format of late. In fact, you’re more likely to run into some bootleg versions that have been circulating on the market. But this fall, Mute is reissuing the entire Can catalog on vinyl — which will be sold as individual albums, for those of you not quite ready to part with five bills at once.
Then, on Oct. 21, comes Can, Delay, Out of Reach, Rite Time and Unlimited Edition.
And lastly, on Nov. 4, Lost Tapes 1-5 will be released.
So if you’re itching to get a copy of any of the classic Can albums, it’s probably best to wait a little bit longer — then you can have the real thing.
