Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 149/500!
This is Santana's first record on Numbered Limited Edition Gold CD from
Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs.
Originally released the same month as their incendiary set at Woodstock, this
impressive debut for Columbia kick-started a Hall of Fame legacy that lasts
still today. Establishing one of the most instantly recognizable sounds in rock;
Carlos’ signature tone and phrasing coupled with Afro-Cuban percussion virtually
launched Latin-Rock fusion. Both AM and FM airwaves were scorched in the ensuing
months with their charted singles Evil Ways (#9) and Jingo (#93) plus Soul
Sacrifice, a favorite after it’s featured spot in the Woodstock movie and
"The first two times Santana tried to record their debut, they scrapped the tapes. But the third time, they came up with Santana, which combined Latin rhythms with jazz-inspired improvisation, hard-rock guitar and lyrical, B.B. King-style blues — and even had a hit single, "Evil Ways." Back then, a lot of Carlos Santana's guitar playing was fueled by psychedelic drugs. "I don't recommend it to anybody and everybody," Santana told Rolling Stone in 2000. "Yet for me, I feel it did wonders. It made me aware of splendor and rapture." For millions of people, Santana did the same thing." - www.rollingstone.com
