"The new 40th Anniversary Edition of this genre-defying album comes packaged in the original UK artwork for the first time since 1971, and includes a bonus CD featuring (almost) fifty minutes of unreleased live material from 1972, remastered in 2011. Tago Mago, the first album with Damo Suzuki on vocals, features the Can line up of Holger Czukay on bass, Michael Karoli on guitars, Jaki Liebezeit on drums and Irmin Schmidt on keyboards, and was recorded at Schloss Norvenich in 1971, released later that year on United Artists. Can's influence is well known and far-reaching and the impact they made on music is felt today as keenly as it ever has been. They themselves have always been impossible to classify and reflecting this, the scope of artists who in recent years have cited Can as a major influence is varied. Of all the band's oeuvre, Tago Mago has been most often cited as an influence for a host of artists including John Lydon, Radiohead, the Fall, Ariel Pink, Fuck Buttons, Sonic Youth, Factory Floor and Queens Of The Stone Age."
