Popol Vuh existiert als Band mal ja, mal nein, dazu mit stetiger Personalfluktuation. ähnlich abwechslungsreich sind die diversen Label, auf denen Popol-Tonträger veröffentlicht werden. Heute ist mal Efa dran: Nicht hoch im Himmel ist eine Auswahl aus dem eigentümlichen, sphärischen Schaffen der Band. Die Aufnahmezeiten liegen zwischen 1971 und 1988. Im eigenen Studio arbeiteten Florian Fricke und seine Gesellen überwiegend im gedämpft elektronischen Bereich, dazu kamen hie und da Conny Feit und Danny Fiechelscher an den Gitarren. Als Sänger hört man auf einigen Tracks Djong Yun, der ganz eigene Farbe ins Spiel bringt. Die Kopplung der Titel ist gelungen, zeigt die Entwicklung der Formation recht präzise auf. Nochmal: Dies ist keine Best Of-Zusammenstellung, es ist wirklich bislang unerhörtes Material. [German Rock News 7, Ausgabe 7 (1999)]


A greatest hits-esque compilation of material, covering the years 1971-86, with an obvious emphasis on the early 70s mystical epics. Many newcomers approach the Popol Vuh discography with trepidation due to its sheer size and this should serve as an ideal entry point for an overload of PV quality. A fabulous sounding selection of material illustrating their psychedelic higher mind. It's not the first PV compilation (as mentioned below) and I really can't comment on the implication of "new versions" (my research hat fell of the truck this week, sorry), but this is a very functional record for those in line. "Popol Vuh are a German progressive band that were formed in 1970 by founding member Florian Fricke and who are still active today. This album is a collection of the most popular recorded tracks dating back to 1970 and covering a 15 year period and runs for around 75 minutes. Included are some versions of songs which have not previously appeared. This is the first ever compilation album from Popol Vuh." Limited stock.



Joseph D.Rowland (Pallbearer):

"Popol Vuh is one of my favorite bands of all time. I'm not really sure how I came across Popol Vuh years ago, but they have consistently stuck with me as one of the most atmosphere-filled music groups that's able to conjure up such an incredible feeling, a meditative feeling, with simple but with awesome melodies, hypnotic". (2013)
