Popol Vuh - The essential album collection vol. 1 6LP
Pioneers of German "krautrock" music, Popol Vuh was the creature of Florian Fricke (1944-2001) together with Holger Trülzsch (percussion), Frank Fiedler (recording engineer and technical assistance) and Bettina Fricke (tablas and production). The first album "Affenstunde" (1970) is an early jaunt into electronic music with its massive use of the Moog synthesizer as well as added percussion. From "Hosianna Mantra" (1972) on, Popol Vuh abandoned the electronic medium to develop a personal avant-garde progressive rock music. Florian Fricke died in 2001 in his sleep.
BMG Germany are releasing five important albums of POPOL VUH as individual CDs, and in a 6LP vinyl boxset in 180g audiophile pressing.
This first batch of the German Krautrock band’s catalogue is to be released on April 26th.
