Popol Vuh

Das Hohelied Salomos

LPS157
Release Notes
  • Originally released in 1975 on United Artists, except track 6 side 1 and track 5 side 2, bonus tracks not on the original LP

We start our second series of Popol Vuh reissues with the fantastic Das Hohelied Salomos, which takes it over from where Einsjäger Und Siebenjäger left it. It features the classic trio of Florian Fricke, Daniel Fichelscher and Djong Yun, plus the help of Amon Düül’s Al Gromer. The theme of the album is taken from biblical passages, using verses from King Salomon’s tales on The Old Testament. The music is superb, great guitar soloing, amazing percussion work and the mesmerizing voice of Djong Yun on nine songs that echo previous works, mostly Einsjäger…, but also Hosianna Mantra comes to mind here and there. A perfectly balanced record that merges progrock sounds, eastern influences through the use of sitar and tabla and spiritual meditation.

The Wah Wah limited edition will have three bonus tracks and come housed the beautiful original sleeve artwork printed on brown craft type paper, as it was first released, and feature a triptic insert with liner notes.

It has been master Cut by Lex Van Coeverden @ www.thevinylroom.nl for a high quality sound pressing that will satisfy the most exquisite audiophile.
