Album Review

Since he had joined Santana in 1972, keyboard player Tom Coster had been Carlos Santana's right-hand man, playing, co-writing, co-producing, and generally taking the place of founding member Gregg Rolie. But Coster left the band in the spring of 1978, to be replaced by keyboardist/guitarist Chris Solberg and keyboardist Chris Ryne. Despite the change, the band soldiered on, and with Inner Secrets they scored three chart singles: the discoish "One Chain (Don't Make No Prison)" (#59), "Stormy" (#32), and a cover of Buddy Holly's "Well All Right" (#69), done in the Blind Faith arrangement. (There seems to be a Steve Winwood fixation here. The album also featured a cover of Traffic's "Dealer.") The singles kept the album on the charts longer than any Santana LP since 1971...

Customer Reviews

Not what you expect.

If you had this on vinyl or early CD then you'll be dissappointed. The arrangements have been 'tweeked' by a keyboard / synth fan. The world famous 'Carlos' sound is muddied by over the top production. The quality is still there but over produced and I have to say the rawness which made this one of my all-time favourite LPs is lacking somewhat. 3 stars purely for the quality of the song writing. It would have been five but for the additional strings, synth and fake percussion which has been added especially on One Chain. A once great album tainted.

I have an original vinyl copy of this album somewhere ... I decided to get a version on itunes rather than deal with the stuff in my loft. What a mistake, this is just rubbish. Why have itunes trashed this glorious album?

Santana is the primary exponent of Latin-tinged rock, particularly due to their combination of Latin percussion (congas, timbales, etc.) with bandleader Carlos Santana's distinctive, high-pitched lead guitar playing. The group was the last major act to emerge from the psychedelic San Francisco music scene of the 1960s and enjoyed massive success at the end of the decade and into the early '70s. The musical direction then changed to a more contemplative and jazzy style as the band's early personnel...
