Dear Publisher!

Our new section - "Vinyl & Hi-Res" is the special place for publishing the rips of musical albums taken from a non-standard sources as:
  • Vinyl LPs ripped with serious technical equipment
  • Multichannel music copied from a DVD-Audio sources
  • SACD-layer extracted via analogue output
  • High resolution studio masters, available directly from label (include "Digital download" higher than 16 bit)
  • Any tapes presented in higher than 24 bit/48 kHz, etc...

Just because you've ripped an old vinyl LP in the digital format does not make it a specific audiophile product. Same as the original vinyl album ripped to MP3 files does not fit here. The posting of music grabbed from the usual (Red Book) Compact Discs is strongly forbidden in this section.

Popol Vuh ‎- Tantric Songs
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz | 900mb
Label: Celestial Harmonies/CEL 006 | Release: 1981 | Genre: Krautrock

Appearing the legendary original track "Brüder des Schattens - Söhne des Lichts (Brothers Of Darkness - Sons Of Light)" from film "Nosferatu".

Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music.

'Tantric Songs' is the english titled release of already existing tracks, that were released between 1978 and 1979 (mainly from the sessions for the soundtrack of Werner Herzog's 'Nosferatu') on 'Brüder des Schattens - Söhne des Lichts' (1978) and 'Die Nacht der Seele' (1979). A bit confusing, because all titles were although translated from German to English. [I will mention the German titles and their English translation]
'Popol Vuh' is Florian Fricke's brainchild, but Daniel Fichelscher is IMO as much responsible for the classic 'Popol Vuh' sound as Florian. The tracks on 'Tantric Songs' ar a brillant illustration of the cooperataion of these two musicians, one giving rhythm and dynamic the other harmony and melody.Often the two work in a question and answer form.

Rust Never Sleeps is an album by Canadian singer-songwriter Neil Young and American band Crazy Horse. Most of the album was recorded live, then overdubbed in the studio.

Storytone was recorded with a 92-piece orchestra and choir, fulfilling Neil's life-long dream to record with an orchestra that performed in the same room with him as he sang.
