Spalax was the first label to compile an extensive reissue program (1992) of Popol Vuh releases.
‘Tantric Songs’ (14206) is listed on inside information of Spalax releases, but so far I have never came across this release.Possibly information is wrong, as ’Die Nacht der Seele’, subtitled ‘Tantric Songs’ is released with catalogue number 14206.
Inside the cover of the ‘Sinaï Desert’- video, the compilation ‘Movie Music’ is mentioned with catalogue number 14874. Up till now I couldn’t verify the release of this cd. According to information on several websites this release is identical with the compilation of the name name, released by Weltbild.
Between 1993 and 1997 Spalax rereleased many Popol Vuh albums. Some also on vinyl. Below I list only the verified releases.
‘Fitzcarraldo’ and ‘In den Garten Pharaos’ appeared for the first time by Spalax during this period. ‘Aguirre’ was released twice. The second release however contains partly different tracks from the 1992-rerelease.
Spalax did one original first release: ‘Messa di Orfeo’ in 1999. Several sources also speak of a video-release of ‘Messa di Orfeo’, however I have never seen a copy.
Also there appeared two 3-cd boxes on Spalax: ‘On the way to the Himalaya’and ‘Soundtracks for Werner Herzog’

"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".
