Can was founded in 1968 by Irmin Schmidt, Holger Czukay, Michael Karoli and Jaki Liebezeit. Out of Reach, the 10th studio album by Can has been unavailable in any official format since it's original release in 1978. Out of Reach is one of Can's lesser known albums. This is due in large part to the fact that bassist Holger Czukay left the band while this album was being recorded, and drummer Jaki Liebezeit had a reduced role. Most of the rhythm duties were left to percussionist, Reebop Kwaku Baah.
