SPV:   "SPV is proud to announce the complete official Werner Herzog original Soundtracks by Popol Vuh, containing the 5 true movie soundtracks classics Aguirre, Heart of Glass, Nosferatu, Fitzcarraldo, Cobra Verde in a high_end limited edition box. In addition, this exclusive box set contains a 96 page_strong booklet designed by International DoubleStandards Berlin including unseen footage and images, conflating the world of both Popol Vuh and Werner Herzog through the soundtracks to some of Herzog´s most acclaimed early feature films.

Popol Vuh are considered one of the most influential German "70s progressive rock" avant_garde acts of the Seventies and are also known as a a pioneering Band in Ambient and Progressive Rock Music. Their records "Affenstunde" (1971) and "In the Garden of Pharao" (1972), played with with the Moog Synthesizer, are claimed to be fundamentally influencing works in Electronica. They went down in the annals of German film music history with their soundtracks for legendary cinema classics by director Werner Herzog and composed more than 15 soundtracks, with the majority of them for Herzog's feature films with Klaus Kinski as the leading character.

Director Werner Herzog, who had always been impressed by their music’s depth, commissioned Fricke and Popol Vuh in 1971 to compose the legendary soundtrack for his movie ‘Aguirre: The Wrath of God’, starring Klaus Kinski and Isabelle Adjani. This collaboration was followed by four more soundtracks between 1976 and 1982 for movies like ‘Heart of Glass’, ‘Nosferatu’ and ‘Fitzcarraldo’ and several documentaries (‘The Great Ecstasy of Woodcarver Steiner’, ’The Dark Glow of the Mountains’ and others). 1990 saw the last major collaboration with the director on ‘Cobra Verde’, starring Kinski in the male lead again. Arrangements from this soundtrack were featured in ‘My Best Fiend’, Herzog’s documentary on Kinski."
