Popol Vuh - Letzte Tage - Letzte Nächte

This 1976 album finds the mystic krautrock outfit in typically ecstatic mode. The bucolic scene on the cover fits nicely with the fuzzy, folky pastoralism contained within. Lovely stuff; and the successful fusion of the spiritual and musical explains why Herzog chose them to soundtrack many of his most far-out films.

I hope you like it.
If you haven't already seen it, watch Herzog's Aguirre, Wrath Of God. An amazing experience with a great Popol Vuh soundtrack.

Hey hilmi, glad you liked it! Report back if you liked 'Aguirre...'. It's a pretty singular film.
