5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite album of all time, 16 Nov. 2004
This review is from: Caravanserai (Audio CD)
I bought this album from a record fare when I was 15 or so after I'd read about Carlos Santana through various guitar magazines and thought I'd give it a listen. I remember thinking at the time of my first hearing that it wasn't what I expected and that it would probably end up at the back of my collection, forgotten and ignored. However, for the simple reason that I couldn't be bothered to bend over and put another record in its place it remained on my stereo and inevitably got played more and more until it gradually grew on me, and grew on me.
So much so that Caravanserai has become my most favourite and loved record, and Santana my favourite artist/guitarist of them all.
This masterpiece takes you on an hypnotic and trancendal journey from beginning to end, and the feeling of soul and passion transmitted throughout is so evident, particularly in Carlos' solo on 'Song Of The Wind', and my favourite 'All the Love Of The Universe' - inspirational.
18 Years on and I've become a great fan of the man. If you've not heard any Santana before and want to hear a true underhyped legend at work then don't even think about it, buy Caravanserai and begin your journey.....
