180g Audiophile Vinyl! Impeccably Mastered by Friday
Music's Joe Reagoso!
1981 was a Winning year for Santana. With the release of their multi-format hit
album Zebop!, Carlos Santana and The Santana Band catapulted onto the top ten,
the first time in several years, and truly changed the course of their musical
history for the next several decades. Thanks in part to the Russ Ballard
(Argent) penned smash hit single Winning, the band not only maintained their
solid following, but also brought in a whole new fan base, which has pledged
loyalty to this legendary band since.
Following a similar formula as on their previous gold album Marathon, Zebop!
featured smash hit tracks like their powerful rendition of Cat Stevens’ Changes
and J.J. Cale’s The Sensitive Kind. The 12 track powerhouse also featured some
of their most revered tunes like Searchin’, Brightest Star and a trip back to
the Abraxas sound with É Papa Ré. With the effervescent lead vocals of Alex
Ligertwood, the power drumming of Graham Lear, the percussive beat of Armando
Pereza, together with the skillful instrumentation of the core band, all fronted
by the legendary Carlos Santana, this album truly illustrated a powerful band
that hit its stride.
Friday Music is no stranger to the legendary music of Santana, so now it is with
much honor to announce the first time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of their
mega classic Zebop!. As a further installment in our Santana/Friday Music 180
Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series, this limited edition classic rock masterpiece is

masterwork release of Zebop! by Santana. This masterpiece is now impeccably
mastered on audiophile vinyl, with first time gatefold cover art and of course
