Ege Bamyasi is the third studio album by German progressive rock band CAN, originally released in November 1972 via United Artists.

CAN was a German experimental rock band formed in Cologne in 1968 by the core quartet of Holger Czukay (bass, tape editing), Irmin Schmidt (keyboards), Michael Karoli (guitar), and Jaki Liebezeit (drums). The group cycled through several vocalists, most prominently the American-born Malcolm Mooney (1968–70) and the Japanese-born Damo Suzuki (1970–73), as well as various temporary members during their career.

Coming from backgrounds in the avant-garde and jazz, the members of CAN blended elements of psychedelic rock, funk, and noise on influential albums such as Tago Mago (1971), Ege Bamyasi (1972) and Future Days (1973).

Their third album Ege Bamyasi 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 mini-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.

In an interview in the 2000s, Holger Czukay talked about the album: "…we could achieve an excellent dry and ambient sound...this album reflects the group being in a lighter mood..."

Ege Bamyasi is now regarded as a classic album. Colin Larkin, editor of the Encyclopedia of Popular Music, rates this album with a 5 stars (“outstanding”), which means that this album is an essential for any record collection.

This album is a limited edition 2019 reissue on green coloured vinyl with remastered audio and digital download code, pressed in the UK via Spoon Records.
