Carlos Santana Havana Moon 180g Import LP
180g Audiophile Vinyl!
The third Carlos Santana solo album marks a surprising turn toward 1950s rock &
roll and Tex-Mex, with covers such as Bo Diddley's "Who Do You Love" and Chuck
Berry's title song. The album features performances by Booker T & the MGs,
Willie Nelson and the Fabulous Thunderbirds, and also Carlos' father Jose
singing "Vereda Tropical" — a song Carlos had first heard when his father was
serenading his mother following an argument.
Produced by veteran R&B producers Jerry Wexler and Barry Beckett, the album
features an eclectic mix of sidemen, including Booker T. Jones of Booker T & the
MG's, Willie Nelson, Jimmie Vaughan, Flaco Jiménez, Stephen Kupka (of Tower Of
Power) and many more.
Havana Moon is a light effort, but it's one of Santana's most enjoyable albums,
which may explain why it was also the best-selling Santana album outside the
group releases in ten years.
