Released:
Label: Hunter
The first of Popol Vuh's collaborations with Werner Herzog, Aguirre was released as an album in its own right in 1975, and features just two tracks used in the film, "Aguirre I" and "Aguirre II." The pieces are among the band's finest work: beautifully fragile yet vaguely creepy, seamlessly combining electronic and classical music, with indigenous South American pan flutes providing a coda. "Aguirre II" folds in prog rock. The remainder of the album cobbles together recordings made between 1972 and 1975, marked by the band's characteristic combination of styles.
