Recorded at Inner Space , Cologne 1968. Originally released 1969.
A few month after the foundation of CAN Holger Czukay recorded his first solo album, CANAXIS. The music has its origins in different parts of the world. It was arranged with the intuition of exploring and preserving the genuine character and beauty in an ambient context. Here for the first time Czukay employed the idea of "sampling".
For this release BOAT-WOMAN-SONG and CANAXIS were remixed from the original 1968-tapes. The additional MELLOW OUT was his first piece of music performed for an audience in 1960 on the German radio. Straight from the broadcast the piece was cut into vinyl by a small recording-studio. Four units for the band-members only !
