Can ‎– WDR Funkhaus, Größer Sendesaal, Köln, 1972

A bootlegged recording of a 1972 gig Can did in Köln straight from a radio broadcast, as can be understood at the end of "Mushroom," where there's a speaker talking in German. The sound quality is acceptable, albeit a little distant and with focus on drums. You get Michael Karoli doing some nice long jams on "Mushroom," and an aggressive, drum-frantic 13-minute rendition of "Spoon," combined with an unknown (for me) track called "Love Me Tonight," while "Bring Me Coffee or Tea," and "Halleluhwah" get an additional heavy jazz funk vibe. Bootleg tape released by Anökumena.
