Info: The debut album by Can. Some copies of the LP bore the subtitle “Made in a castle with better equipment”. Upon its release in 1969, the album became very influential in the development of Krautrock.
It is notable for being the only Can album (until the 1989 reunion on Rite Time) on which Malcolm Mooney performed all of the vocals. Mooney recorded a few songs for the following Soundtracks album and was replaced by Damo Suzuki.
The cover of the album depicts a faceless Galactus, and is credited to “The Can”, a name originally suggested by Malcolm Mooney and taken on as a result of a democratic vote. Previously the band were known as “Inner Space”, which later became the name of their purpose-built recording studio.
