Thank God there are no 'extra takes', 'bonus tracks' and Bill Laswell remasters. This is Santana's neo-masterpiece, a record that begins at the beginning, rocks through the middle and exits in Mike Shrieve's magnificent 'Every Step of the Way' with Douglas Rauch on bass guitar. Driving the caravan ever onward is James Mingo Lewis on bongos and Jose Chepito Areas on timbales - but check out Mr Santana himslef on 'Song of the Wind'. Beautiful, ethereal stuff. Forget the later Santana-featuring-everyone-you-can-think-of-and-scoop-Grammies, this is the real McJobim.
