BMG has released Popol Vuh’s exclusive vinyl deluxe box set Vol. 2 – Acoustic & Ambient Spheres on November 26.
The collector’s edition marks the continuation of the highly acclaimed 2019 Popol Vuh release, The Essential Album Collection Vol. 1, and includes four important progressive rock and ambient works with Seligpreisung (1973), Coeur de Verre (1970), Agape-Agape (1983), and Cobra Verde (1987).
All albums have been remastered and will be released on audiophile 180g vinyl with adapted original artworks, including a bonus track on each album. The box set comes with an insert with extensive liner notes and photos, completed by three picture prints, a collector's film still poster from Coeur de Verre, and the original movie poster from Cobra Verde (both in A3 format).
Popol Vuh founder Florian Fricke once said about their music: “Call it Magic Music or Love Music, just what you’d like to: it’s music for the soul. That’s it.”
He did not want his music to be tied to any specific genre nor to be forced into a typology: “I keep on finding new styles and recurring patterns to merge into the music. But the essence always stays the same. Let me tell you one thing: Popol Vuh’s essence is a mass for the heart. It’s music about love. That’s all.”
Founded in 1970, Popol Vuh is one of the pioneers of electronic music and progressive rock as they were the first German group to use the Moog-synthesizer, creating new worlds of sound that were groundbreaking for ambient and trance music. Composer and visionary Florian Fricke started collaborating with renowned director Werner Herzog, leading Fricke to write soundtracks to Aguirre, Herz aus Glas, Nosferatu – The Vampyre, Fitzcarraldo, and Cobra Verde.
BMG is proud to represent much of Popol Vuh's recorded catalogue.
