POPOL VUH Letzte Tage - Letzte Nächte (1976)

Germany's Popol Vuh pulled out all the stops on this album and went for a much more Krautrock approach than anything else previously heard , or indeed after.

This is a fantastic album which benefits from "Renate Knaup" on vocals and the dominating guitarwork of "Daniel Fichelscher" which lights up every piece.. Surprisingly "Florian Frickes" keyboards are very sparse on the ground.

This was the beginning of film director " Werner Herzog" partnerships which created those legendary soundtracks of the 70's.

An essential album!
