SANTANA | AMIGOS (180 GRAM AUDIOPHILE VINYL/LIMITED ANNIVERSARY EDITION)
The legendary Santana set the music world on fire back in the late sixties out of San Francisco with their hypnotic blend of Latin-fused rock, jazz and soul, augmented with brilliant and skillful musicianship of their leader and guitarist Carlos Santana. Bursting on the scene initially with the worldwide smash hit single Evil Ways (Santana's Greatest Hits Friday Music #33050), this first offering would prove to become the huge catalyst for things to come. Throughout the remainder of the late seventies and beyond, Carlos Santana would take the band to the top of all the popular music charts as the 1976 fusion classic Amigos would go on to yield a plethora of hit tracks at all formats of radio. Exotic and one of the classic rocker's more adventurous efforts, this 7 track masterpiece is loaded with hit after hit with smash singles like Let It Shine, the massive radio hit Dance Sister Dance and of course their stellar instrumental all time classic Europa, all featuring the amazing guitar of the great Carlos Santana.As one of the most enduring albums in their massive career catalog, Santana's Amigos included some significant album tracks too like the rocking masterpiece Let Me and the powerful Gitano, which features the legendary funk and soul percussion of Armando Pereza. More deep funk and fusion follow with tunes like Take Me With You which also feature the stunning lead guitar work of Carlos Santana, plus his long time associates Tom Coster on keyboards, David Brown on bass, Leon Chancler on drums, and newest member Greg Walker with his stellar vocals which helped carry the band back into gold and platinum territory with this wonderful album. All in all, this is a collection of songs which took the fans by storm, forever retaining the title superstars to the Santana franchise.
