Santana III is an album that undeservingly stands in the shadows behind the towering legend that is the band's second album, Abraxas. This was also the album that brought guitarist Neal Schon -- who was 17 years old -- into the original core lineup of Santana. Percussionist

Santana begins to reach beyond his first two albums and does so with wonderful results. This one has a couple of well known radio hits but it also has some excellent musical adventures that don't get the airplay that they really deserve. Even after all these years, I play this one a lot.

SANTANA III is the last album by the group to feature all of the original members, in addition to introducing new guitarist Neal Schon. Schon added his own guitar style, which complimented Carlos Santana's perfectly. Carlos himself sang lead on the ballad "Everything's Coming Our Way", which proved that he could sing as well as play great guitar in the mold of B.B. King and Otis Rush. As great as this CD is, you can't help but wish that this lineup had stayed together longer.

Two elements not reenacted often in the many Santana line-ups exist in this album: - Neal Schon's guitar adds such dimension to this album, an actual dialog between the two guitarists can be imagined. Their reference to "Toussaint Loverture" is a good example of it. - and the addition of Tower of Power awesome horn section in (only) one track: "Everybody's Everything". Not for the faint-hearted but still one of the best albums of the band, especially if you like drums and percussions.
