The Get Down & Can

I recently watched the Netflix series ‘The Get Down’ which is based in the South Bronx, New York in 1977 around the birth of Hip-Hop, Rap and DJ-ing. I was immediately and repeatedly struck by the inclusion of the track ‘Vitamin C’ by Can from the album Ege Bamyasi, which I think was released around 1972.

I didn’t have a copy on vinyl, although I’d heard it a lot, so last week I got one. Maybe I’ll talk about it more another time but for now I just wanted to share the track.
