Even though Bel Air is a bit of a dog's dinner I still give this album five stars as it contains some of Can's most transcendent tracks. The title song is an unbelievably weightless exercise in shimmering tropical psychedelia... never ever get tired of listening to it. Moonshake is so ahead of its time with its highly mechanised funk beat. Only a very few artists achieved this class of supremely elevated composition and performance. To anyone new to Can - get this one, you won't be disappointed.

I purchased this album yesterday and have listened to it a couple of times after giving it a thorough cleaning. I don't have any issues with it at all. Since it is apparently pressed using the original master tapes any anomalies were probably there from the beginning. I am very happy with the album.

I had quite a noisy pressing, too. Today I did the wood glue trick and probably 75% of the noise is gone. I’m going to glue it once more and I’m sure it’ll sound even cleaner.

I ordered this twice and both time there was filth on the outer 1/3 of the track, both sides, that made crackles in one channel. I could not be washed off. If I could find a copy without the filth, I would gladly add it to my collection.

Pops and crackles all over the place on mine sadly. Even after a clean. Great record though. Dubious QC at the plant however.

Does anyone know why Side B is listed as "Spare A Light" ? Is it an alternate name for "Bel-Air" ? What is the true name for the track?

I have this one. Only difference is that the labels of my copy are pale yellow. I purchased it in 2006. So it must have been issued before then.

I've had the opportunity to compare this remastered edition side by side with the original 1973 UK pressing in superb condition ( https://www.discogs.com/Can-Future-Days/release/330243 ), and I must say this reissue sounds great!

The remastering has been done very delicately and faithfully to the original and nothing has been damaged during the process. No over-processing or over-compression, no noticable artifacts of the modern times, just a clear sound with the original lively dynamics present. There are some slight level tweaks on the low and high ends of the spectrum, but it's all good. I wouldn't say the new one sounds better, but to my ear it surely does not sound worse. If I didn't happen to have the original issue on hand for direct comparison, I probably would not have noticed any changes at all. A well done release!

My ultimate rainy day album, and perhaps my favorite Can.

It might be worth pointing out that the remastered SACD edition of "Future Days", reissued in 2005, has added room ambience type reverb to the entire album.

All of the remastered reissues are quite heavily compressed, loud and have been treated with digital noise reduction. The early Can recordings will never sound "perfect", and in some cases these modern touches help a bit (like some extra bass boost on "Mushroom" on Tago Mago) but in most cases they tweaked them too much. Some people are obsessed with high quality needledrops of Can albums in their original first pressings, but few seem to have actually compared them with the old Spoon CDs from the late 80s. I just did and those old CD reissues are often very close to how the original LPs sound. I've filed away the SACDs and went back to my old Spoon CDs.

Very exciting update: I found my old 1989 Spoon CD reissue of "Future Days", and the added reverb is present there as well. Have a listen to Damo's vocals on the title track: on the original LP they're completely dry and very upfront. On the CD reissues they have a room ambience with a digital sheen, giving them a completely different feel.
