Of course this a special set of music by Santana as it seems to connect his 'devadip' aspect with his earthier roots. But, what sucks about this is that the frequency range is not what it was on vinyl nor on early first cd releases. What is it? Sterilized for the netizens? At times it is almost embarrassing. And so I would think that Carlos would expect better.
but growing up in the Bay Area and graduating from the same high school that Santana attended, even as a fellow musician he bored me to tears. There were a couple of things I could listen to for a minute, or until I reached the tuner, but it wasn't until I heard Open Invitation that I really thought he could actually rock. I just got this CD and that one song still jumps out at me. It is totally underrated.
do not listen to the nay sayers. this is a fine cd. my only problem is that you get the 12" disco version of 'one chain'and not the original LP version. there is an import version of this cd but dont know if 'one chain'is restored.
