Mute and Spoon Records today announce Can Live in Cuxhaven 1976, the third in a series of Can live albums. This is the latest in the acclaimed series which began in 2021 with Can Live in Stuttgart 1975 and presents a shorter, more concise performance by Can over four sections. The new album is set for release on limited edition blue vinyl, CD, and digital platforms October 14.
The Can Live series has taken the best of Can’s bootlegged recordings – many of which were recorded by Andrew Hall, who sadly died in April 2021– and, overseen by founding member Irmin Schmidt and producer/engineer René Tinner, have fed them through the wringer of 21st century technology to bring you these vital historical documents in the best quality versions possible.

Can Live in Cuxhaven 1976’s sleeve notes were written by the French author Pascal Bussy, whose books include The Can Story (co-authored with Andy Hall, 1989) and Kraftwerk: Man, Machine, and Music(1993). Talking about Can live, Bussy states, “Until the end, Can gigs were not only logical extensions of their studio work, they were definitely a work in itself. And we are so fortunate to still have a lot to discover.”
This new album follows Can Live in Brighton 1975 and Can Live in Stuttgart 1975. The albums have been featured in the year end round ups from Uncut, The Wire, MOJO, Record Collector, Electronic Sound, Treble, Aquarium Drunkard, and more.
