It is grand testimony that although it is well over 30 years since I bought it, I still listen regularly to some of the tracks...particularly Taboo and, on the right day, the track can move me as if I've never heard it before. The end of the track contains simply one of the most passionate angst-ridden guitar solos that I have ever heard in my looong love affair with the guitar. Trust me, if you want emotional soloing, this track alone must be heard before you die.
It is too easy to dismiss the album as just 'fan fodder' because it contains two of the best dance music tracks you'll find anywhere in the wide world of music, namely "Jungle Strut" and "Para Los Rumberos", these also being magnificent examples from their original keyboard player who departed the group not long after. These sandwich the pretty dreadful "EveryThing's Coming Our Way".
The final three tracks are CD add-ins (not on the vinyl version) from a 1973 concert at Fillimore West. They're OK, but if you want to hear Santana in concert and be stunned by their prowess, you really need to get hold of their wonderful album "Moonflower" which mixes live and studio work with incredible ease.
So, Santana's Third Album... try to find a way to block out the few tracks that will really annoy you as this album contains some really great material elsewhere,
