Can vinyl box contains 17 180g vinyl LPs

Mute Records are to issue an enormous 17 LP Can box set in December 2013.

All records will be pressed on 180g vinyl, and come housed in a linen wrapped box. The set features 13 of the band’s classic albums, alongside Out Of Reach, which has been unavailable in any official format since its original release in 1978, plus Can Live, a bonus live disc featuring the classic Can line up of Holger Czukay (bass), Michael Karoli (guitar), Jaki Liebezeit (drums) and Irmin Schmidt (keyboards). The live album was recorded at Sussex University in 1975 and will be unavailable in any format outside of the Can Vinyl Box.

All albums are packaged in original artwork and are accompanied by five posters and a 20-page 12” booklet accompanies the box set featuring unseen photographs and sleevenotes by Alan Warner.

The Can Vinyl Box was mastered and cut to vinyl by Kevin Metcalfe at The Soundmasters, London from the original analogue tapes. Remasters and vinyl processing was coordinated by long time collaborator, Jono Podmore aka Kumo.

The Can Vinyl Box is released on 2 December 2013.

    Nice, but a little pricey.

  2. James says:

    No download code. Lovely.

  3. eric says:

    No “delay 1968″?

  4. eric says:

    oops, sorry. there it is

  5. Jon Shaw says:

    Just ordered this from amazon.de for less than 275 euros which converts to just under £235. The current price on amazon.co.uk is £438.

  6. Bert says:

    It is now listed for EUR 320 on amazon.de. Great – that’s probably called ‘supply and demand’.

  7. Jon Shaw says:

    There are download codes supplied on little cards inside the individual album sleeves. I’m guessing that there’s one for each album but I’ve only opened Monster Movie so far (it sounds AWESOME btw).

    • Jon Shaw says:

      further to my other comment there are download codes for every album EXCEPT the Live one. These can be found on little cards inside each of the album sleeves.

  8. uzine says:

    Normally a box compiles material in a way that the average cost per album is lower. Here it’s still over 20 euro per title. And this for material that has been reissued umpteen times.
