Popol VuhAguirre (with bonus track) ... CD
PDU/BMG, 1975. New Copy ... $13.99 15.98
A wonderful album from Popol Vuh – a set based on their initial soundtrack material for the Werner Herzog film of the same name, but one that also stretches out in a lot of new directions, too – with longer songs that really open up, although always strongly in the spirit of the original music! The sounds are from the trio of Florian Fricke on piano and keyboards, Daniel Fichelscher on guitars and percussion, and Djong Yun on a bit of vocals – all elements that are layered and processed, but at a very organic level that's very cool – so that nothing ever feels too forced, or too cold – that definite warmer side of the spectrum that Popol Vuh brought to the German scene of the 70s – and left as their legacy with great records like this! Some tracks are quite long – including the 16 minute "Vergegenwaertigung" – and titles include "Aguirre I", "Morgengruss II", "Agnus Dei", and "Aguirre II". CD features the bonus track "Aguirre III".

Popol VuhEinsjager & Siebenjager (with bonus tracks) ... CD
PDU/BMG, 1974. New Copy ... $13.99 15.99
A leaner lineup of Popul Vuh – mostly guitar and piano or keyboard lines, mixed with percussion – but a record that also has some of the group's most tuneful moments of the early 70s – and a sound that really shows them moving forward with a new sort of energy! Most of the tracks are short, and never overindulgent – yet they also show a growing skill with guitar solos, which helps bring out a rockish quality the group never had this strongly before – even though most of the record has an instrumental approach. Djong Yun sings a bit on the set, often in a moody, lyric-less way – and tracks include the side-long title cut, plus "Kleiner Krieger", "Gutes Land", "Morgengruss", "King Minos", and "Wurfelspiel". CD features bonus tracks – "Wo Bist Du" and "King Minos II". CD
