After Popol Vuh’s release “The Essential Album Collection – Vol. 1” in 2019 the fans have frequently asked for another Popol Vuh event. Now finally the time has come: On 22nd October Popol Vuh’s boxset “Vol. 2 – Acoustic & Ambient Spheres” will be released.

This edition consolidates four significant albums from the 1970s and the 1980s, conflating ambient musical phases of Popol Vuh. It sheds light on their central, recurring motives and styles of rock music, folk-ethno-fusion, ambient music and two atmospheric soundtracks for legendary Werner Herzog movies. Ultimately, Fricke personally did not like it when his music was categorized in genres or typologies: “Call it Magic Music, or Love Music, if you like: it’s music for the soul. That’s it.”

The editions contains the albums Seligpreisung (1973), Coeur de Verre (OST for the Werner Herzog Move “Coeur de Verre” 1978), Agape-Agape Love Love (1983) and Cobra Verde (OST for the Werner Herzog Movie 1987). All albums have been newly remastered on heavyweight 180g audiophile vinyl including one bonus track per album. The vinyls appear with adjusted original artworks. The boxset is completed by three picture prints, a picture still from the Movie “Coeur de Verre” and the original movie poster of “Cobra Verde” (both in Din A3 format) and an insert with detailed liners and photos.

Each album will also be made available on CD.
