Can Am des Puig biography
CAN AM DES PUIG were a short-lived hippy collective made up of English, French and Spanish acquaintances who came together in the winter of 1978 at the mountain village of Deía on the Spanish island of Majorca to produce this concept album based on an elaborately illustrated book depicting the various stages of mind one passes through in the context of a day. The book is central to the music, and both the original release and 2006 reissue were accompanied by expensive and intricate copies of the text and illustrations.

The music of Book of AM was recorded on a TEAC 4-track loaned to the group by SOFT MACHINE and GONG leader Daevid Allen, who also helped the band to mix, master and privately release the first of the two discs in 1978. Due largely to funding issues and changing priorities, the remainder of the music lay dormant until 2005 when book co-author and band leader Juan Arkotxa oversaw the completion of the entire offering and its subsequent reissue on Wah-Wah Records. The original LP is a virtually impossible find today, and the re-release was issued in a limited quantity of only 500 vinyl and CD copies.

The group's music moves between mildly psychedelic and pastoral, with heavy influences of Eastern folk and mystical sounds. The hand of Allen can be heard on some of the more Western tracks, particularly on the first disc.

CAN AM DES PUIG are an almost mythical piece of progressive folk history whose music is difficult to locate today, even in its reissued CD form. They left behind no known videos, live appearances or other unreleased music; and their single offering remains an elusive but worthwhile experience today.
