Overview

Festival

Santana's follow-up to its comeback album, Amigos, was another David Rubinson-produced effort that moved back toward more of a Latin rock feel, although it retained an essentially pop focus -- "The River" was the first real vocal ballad on a Santana album. If any doubt still existed that the group was no longer a band of equals but a platform for its lead guitarist, the current lineup dispelled that; Carlos Santana was now the only original member of the band left. Although the album went gold, the lack of a hit single hurt the album's commercial standing; its number 27 peak was the lowest yet for a Santana band album.

l came across this album when it was released in 1976, and it took my breath away. l believe, Carlos was at his best on this stunning album, backed up with the brilliant other musicans and Fred Catero and David Rubinson on production. l have now re-discovered this sound, and it stil stand up today, forthe true masterpiece it always was.
