Popol Vuh - "Letzte Tage, Letzte Nächte" 1976

If you are reading this blog,the chances are Popol Vuh need no introduction. The work of Florian Fricke is required listening for those who worship at the altar of transcendent jams. After abandoning electronic music, Fricke began a new journey to the center of the mind with the use of more traditional instrumentation. Featuring the talents of multi instrumentalist Daniel Fischlescher, Letzte Tage Letzte Nacht is a record of enduring warmth that enevelopes the listener in a beautiful psychotropic mist. More stereotypically "rock" than the records Fricke and company had released previously, Letzte Tage Letzte Nacht retains Fricke's unique sense of melody and harmony.The unsung hero of many of Popol Vuh's finest moments;Daniel Fischlescher's electric guitar weaves a blissful cosmic tapestry with his sun baked tone and delicate phrasing throughout this essential record. Although available on CD, I found the remastering hollow and flat ,so with the help of Joe the Engineer I present to you a superb vinyl rip of the original LP.
