Live & In The Can was the first live album released by Delirious? in 1996, and was packaged in a tin can. It was re-released in 2012 as part of the band's 20th Anniversary Cutting Edge Years boxed set.
The "Spontaneous" sections are live improvisation, prayers, or extended introductions to the other tracks. Much of the recordings took place at the Cutting Edge events in Littlehampton and Central Hall, Southampton as well as at the Remix conference in Birmingham. Those heard praying in the Spontaneous sections include Roger Ellis, Billy Kennedy, Pete Greig, Roger Mitchell and Johnny Sertin.
