/*Ege Bamyası*/ is the fourth studio album by the German experimental
rock band Can which was originally released as an LP in 1972 by United
Artists. The album contains the single "Spoon", which charted in the Top 10
in Germany, largely because of its use as the theme of a German TV thriller
series called "Das Messer" (The Knife). The success of the single allowed
Can to move to a better studio in which they recorded /Ege Bamyası/.
/Ege Bamyası/ was remastered as a hybrid SACD in 2004 which includes a
booklet with commentary on the album by former /Melody Maker/ journalist
David Stubbs, as well as previously unreleased photos of the band.

The cover artwork, in addition to being a pun on the band's name (as it
depicts a can labeled "CAN"), reflects several of the band members'
continued interest in traditional music;^[1] "Ege Bamyası" means "Aegean
Okra" in Turkish. The album has received much critical acclaim since its
release and has been cited as an influence by various artists. Several
artists have played cover versions of songs from /Ege Bamyası/. Remix
versions of several tracks by various artists are included on the album
