Liner notes

Liner notes from PDU Pld.SQ 6066 - 1976:

This record is dedicated to the followers of Yoga
Recorded at Bavaria Tonstudio, Munich
Produced by Florian Fricke with Indian musicians
All music by Popol Vuh
Produced for Ohr Musik GmbH.


2015.03.08  -  With many thanks to Sergey Soplenkov, I include a few lines from a correspondence with Al Gromer Khan:

As to the Yoga Popol record the musicians were: Pandit Sankha Chatterjee – table, Beena Chatterjee – vocals, Peter Müller – sarangi, Florian Fricke – indian harmonium, AGK (Al Gromer Khan) – sitar.
It was recorded at STUDIO 70 Munich in (I think 1974).

With best wishes


Gerhard Augustin: Tell me something; are you actually playing on the album YOGA?
Florian Fricke: This is part of the same chapter. YOGA is an unauthorized release. Some Indian musicians visited me in my studio, and somebody else took the tapes and sold them under the name of Popol Vuh, but it had nothing to do with Popol Vuh, really. I'm playing harmonium, and organ. I think it was released in Italy. (Eurock)
