Santana Borboletta 180g LP
180g High Quality Vinyl!
After some hot live performances and subversive jaunts made in the aftershock of
Woodstock, Santana and his band entered the calm atmosphere of the recording
studio to make their sixth album. Taking a look at the blue butterfly on the LP
cover, it wasn’t surprising that purist Santana fans scented that the music in
this particular garden would be more gentle and cultivated than the previous
hard-rock sound. But one thing after another: in attune with semi natural
sounds, the 'Canto De Los Flores' swings along to dabbed figures on the Rhodes
piano and waves of multi-cultural drumming.
The drama continues with "Life Is Anew" – a powerfully arranged ballad, followed
by a highly emotional rock number ("Give And Take"). This takes us to where
Santana feels most at home – "Promise Of A Fisherman" with its velvety,
wonderfully expansive guitar sound. By now, at the latest, the listener joins
the sensitive outdoorsman on his chase after the butterfly named "Borboletta"
with a wealth of gorgeous sounds. Don’t hesitate to capture this rare specimen
for your collection!
