    Really happy to finally own a great pressing of my favourite CAN album and favourite CAN track Sing Swan Song.

      I have SST with something etched in a deadwax. Does anybody know who is the cutting engineer? Btw, excellent pressing on a dead quiet vinyl.

        Echoing what others have said here, such a fantastic copy. I can hear every instrument in all its full clarity, bass where it needs to be, treble the same. Brilliant pressing on a gorgeous coloured slab of vinyl.

          I threw away the barcode sticker with the shrink wrap so I have nothing to distinguish it from the other 'green vinyl' 2019 entry. Anyway this 'European' issue as opposed to the 'German, Austrian and Swiss' one (so silly this splitting hair stuff sometimes!) sounds great to me. Quiet pressing. Authentic sound for 1972 with clarity and crispness as well.
          Will never need to replace this.

            Very high quality remastering. I don't have the first pressing, but I think this vinyl reissue is very close in musical reproduction. For those who don't have the money for the first pressing, I highly recommend it.

              August 2022: This has been repressed and is available new again. No need to pay inflated prices.

                This reissue sounds quite alright and airy (and certainly much, much better than the rather fuggy German 1972 original pressing UAS 29 4141 I) but a bit weak in the bass spectrum and generally limited/compressed. My personal test track is "Vitamin C" with Jaki Liebezeit's signature drumming: on the 2019 reissue you can hardly make out the bass drum - it gets lost in the spectrum, almost washed away. So sad!
                If you'd like to get an idea what Ege Bamyasi might sound like on vinyl, just get yourself a copy of Jonny Greenwood's soundtrack Inherent Vice (Warner Bros./Nonesuch 546900-1) which features "Vitamin C" on side A (sadly no additional Can tracks). Here the full dynamics of the song have been restored and transferred, rendering the hi-hats and bass drum patterns in all their glory, and creating a nuanced, yet powerful and breezy sound. I'm waiting for an Ege Bamyasi vinyl reissue to accomplish that!

                  Excellent album of experimental progressive rock. An all time great. As already reviewed, this is an outstanding pressing. Real quality and frankly if you're main interest is the music, little point in forking out for a 1st press.

                    Have just played this through and marvelled at the superior transfer and pressing. This is the best vinyl copy of the album I have ever heard. Whoever did this transfer should be congratulated. Have about 8 copies of this superb album as it's been a favourite ever since I bought it on release in 1972. In my opinion nothing comes near this quality - not even the first pressing.

                      We now have three listings for the green vinyl edition, but there's a strong chance these are all the same pressing and the only difference between them is the sticker on the back. If people could add runouts to the listings so that we can figure that out, that would be great.
