My first introduction to the world of Can is Holger Czukay's first solo album "Movies." It took me a decade before I heard my first proper Can album, but that is another tale. I purchased "Movies," which came out in 1979, and I immediately compared it to the more well-known album by David Byrne and Brian Eno, "My Life in the Bush of Ghosts." Both albums used found sound, such as the Byrne/Eno recordings all used vocals from other recorded sources. It's a nifty slightly experimental album, but hearing "Movies" seems to me to be the real deal. Recorded around the same time, I feel Czukay's approach was more light-hearted, with great swaps of humor, compared to the Byrne/Eno, which had a sinister quality. Both were natural groove orientated music, but I find beauty in such pieces by Czukay such as "Persian Love" that I don't find in "Bush of Ghosts."

The Czukay narrative is that he records all the jams from Can recordings, and never turns off the tape machine. He then cuts, slices, and like a film, edits the aural aspect of the work. Here he adds outside sounds/voices to the overall mix. It must be time-consuming work, because the music doesn't sound disjointed or crazed, but structured in a manner that is, of course, listenable, but also catchy. It was pop music with strong melodies but filtered through Czukay's knowledge of 20th century contemporary classical music. Stockhausen is a significant influence on Czukay, and he even studied under the great composer. A remarkable album that never sounds dated. A joy from the first cut to the last.

Very dissapointed. 'Cool Pool' is a pointless instrumental version. Very inferior

Hi, is this the original vinyl sleeve, without the "from Can" written on it? I need the very first version of it.

It is the same recording like the 1979 album. Only the addition of track 5 is a difference...

To anyone wondering how good this record is, the answer is VERY VERY GOOD. Not just 'wow pretty rad what's next' but 'is it over? put it on again!''

cool in the pool is the hit, bill wyman's 'je suis un rock star' meets faust 'sad skinhead' meets le chic playing lawn darts with steely dan
oh lord! give us more money is like future days can meets station to station bowie
persian love is verrry moody and produces yearns, just so fantastic SOUNDING
hollywood symphony has rattling levels of groove

can't even say i have a fave!!!
5 out of 5

The Grönland Records edition is a rework. Not the original album or a simple remaster.

Holger Czukay will always change. We can find places along his road to stop and marvel at what was left behind, and Movies is a precious stone indeed. He is often under the dry label of Krautrock or the frightening "experimental" label. The truth is he's a master of dub. He's a cut and paste man who often fills in his own blanks with his own instrumentals on guitar, french horn, treated instruments, short wave radio reception or his original axe, the bass guitar. A very happy German who will make you smile. Expand your mind, get Movies. And if you like it, get the vastly under rated Good Morning Story (1999) which is playful in many of the same ways. If there is any justice in the world, Holger's music will out live us all.
