Tago Mago is the second studio album by German progressive rock band CAN, originally released in February 1971 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).

Tago Mago was originally released as a double album in 1971. It was the band's second studio album and the first to feature Damo Suzuki after the 1970 departure of previous vocalist Malcolm Mooney.

Recorded in a rented castle near Cologne, the album features long-form experimental tracks blending funk rhythms, avant-garde noise, jazz improvisation, and electronic tape editing techniques.

Tago Mago has been described as CAN's best and most extreme record in sound and structure. The album has received much critical acclaim since its release and has been cited as an influence by various artists. Drowned in Sound called it "arguably the most influential rock album ever recorded”.

This double album 2LP record set is a 2019 reissue on orange coloured vinyl with remastered audio, printed inner sleeves and a digital download code, pressed in the UK via Spoon Records.
