A five-disc boxset will take in previously released and unreleased material from the late Holger Czukay

Grönland Records has announced details of an upcoming five-disc retrospective boxset featuring material by the late Can co-founder Holger Czukay.

Entitled Cinema, the boxset will feature previously released and unreleased material by Czukay who died last September. Solo works and collaborations, with the likes of Brian Eno, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Jah Wobble and fellow Can member Jaki Liebezeit , will all feature.

Across 34 tracks, the boxset will cover a 50-year period in Czukay's recording career. Cinema will be available in five-disc editions for both CD and vinyl, with the latter featuring a 7" "vinyl video" that contains the music video for the 1979 song 'Cool In The Pool' (which you can watch above) as well as "a previously unreleased video of Holger introducing his first video recording [and] said video recording".

The boxset will be released on March 23, to coincide with what would have been Czukay's 80th birthday the following day.
