This CD contains a set of songs from different early LP`s, like E.G.
the complete first LP with the title "Alex" from the year 1973 and
the Cologne cult volumes of "Can". Plus two songs from their second
LP "That`s The Deal", as well as a few selections from the double LP
"Studio Tapes 1976-78", and the LP "Sazou".

The song "Dadaloglu" was a 1970 hit in Turkey for about seven months
and received first place with National Hit Parade for that year. The
music is a mixture of ethnic garmoni (accordion), hard hitting brass,
and beautiful acoustic guitars.

Great stuff, exotic&agressive, with great percussion and acoustic guitar, vocals also will do, must have!

Thanks for sharing!

yesterday I complained that a lot of your files say "File not found", so today I must say a BIG THANK YOU for the Alex Oriental Experience with Can. A beautiful album, which I'd never heard of. Is Irmin Schmidt not on it? Anyway, thanks again.
