"The ultimate edition of Popol Vuh's work fors for the fantastic Werner Herzog tribute to the old Murnau classic. Florian Fricke and Daniel Fichelscher opening again new paths to follow as they had done with Hosianna Mantra. 1978's LP Brüder Des Schattens - Söhne Des Lichts ('Brother of Darkness - Son of Light') brings amazing new age / ambnient escapades based on repetitive passages and instrumentation of incredible beauty recorded witht he help of Al Gromer (Amon Düül) on sitar, Bob Eliscu (Between) on oboe, Ted de Jong on tamboura plus a complete church choir from Munich.
Disc two of the Wah Wah edition features the LP that was originally released in 1978 as Nosferatu, a.k.a. On The Way To A Little Way. Herzog needed more music for the movie and asked Fricke for obscure, scary material. Fricke compiled the great collection that Nosferatu / On The Way… is from the Popol Vuh archives - a varied selection where older Moog tracks mix with more reflexive material. Despite all the variety - or maybe thanks to it - On The Way To A Little Way became a fantastic classic Popol Vuh album."
