A German reissue of Tago Mago from 2000. He had a couple of Can original presses but they were a bit out of my price range. I would've loved to have grabbed those.

I first heard that "Kate and Edith" song you mentioned sung by Jim Nabors on Gomer Pyle USMC. Don't recall if the Statlers were in the episode.
