Popol Vuh - In Den Garten Pharaos (1971) Ed2004

Popul Vuh's career was inextricably tied to that of genius filmmaker Werner Herzog, one of the brightest lights of Junger Deutscher Film, a concurrent cinematic movement whose designs on building a new German culture mirrored that of the krautrockers. Florian Fricke's project was perfectly suited to the realm of cinematic score because, unlike many of their rhythm-driven peers, they made eerie, floating, shape-shifting mood music. Mixing synth drones with North African percussion, Fricke created environmental paeans that liberated spiritualism from its liturgical past, celebrating a glorious, hippy-ish pantheism. In Den Gärten Pharaos is split into two lengthy, loving workouts, in which the Popol Vuh sound is almost born before your eyes.

Hello, I have just discovered your blog although it feels familiar so maybe I've been here before. Anyway, I've just helped myself to this Popol Vul album, two Guru Guru albums and some Amon Duul I and Amon Duul II albums. Me and my ears are very grateful for your generosity. Thank you very much indeed.
Best regards, TF, London
