Aside from their studio albums, which Can album do you like the most?

I have heard very little of these titles, but I'm very interested in the outcome of this poll keeping future purchases in mind :).

I have all of these, and my vote goes without hesitation to Unlimited Edition.  Overall, I'd grade these albums this way:

1. Unlimited Edition (actually one of my favorite Can albums)
2. Lost Tapes (just released last year, so it hasn't had time to grow on me as much, but objectively it's even better than Unlimited)
3. Peel Sessions (paints a nice picture of the late Damo and early post-Damo periods)
4. Radio Waves (a recent acquisition. has some overlap with Peel Sessions, and has a cool B-side)
5. Can Live Box  (compiled from not-the-best source material, but probably the most complete picture of Can on stage available today.  Their live improvs don't translate to the album format as well as their studio improvs, though).
6. Sacrilege (the dreaded "remix" album... I hate those things)

Box Music (Live 1971-1977) is the only one I've heard.

Of their "non-canon" stuff (does this mean that fans do not accept music on these albums as occurring in the same Can universe as their albums proper?) I've only heard the Lost Tapes, but that is an awesome three CD set.  Two you didn't mention in your list are "Tago Mago Live" and "Future Days Live" both of which are actually in-studio jams that have little to do with the referenced albums.  Both are excellent as well. 

I can understand your anger at me, but what did the horse I rode in on ever do to you?

"non-canon can" was just a nice turn of phrase, I thought.

Great poll!
I'd have to go with the Lost Tapes.
