Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Live At The Fillmore - 1968 (Audio CD)
I've always had a half hearted interest in Santana. Heard the hits, seen their acid fuelled Woodstock appearance on film, liked them, respected them but didn't love them. And then I heard this. This is Santana before the record companies got hold of them.
Yes, they needed to do the 3 minute singles to get air play, but this album is why the record companies where interested in the first place.
What a band, what a group of musicians. If you like musicians jamming funk, jazz, blues...and possibly not knowing their actually doing it, or rather how good they where at it, then you'll love this.
It's raw Santana but, at times, brilliant.
I prefer this to their studio albums. Just my opinion
