Album Review

By the release of Amigos, the Santana band's seventh album, only Carlos Santana and David Brown remained from the band that conquered Woodstock, and only Carlos had been in the band continuously since. Meanwhile, the group had made some effort to arrest its commercial slide, hiring an outside producer, David Rubinson, and taking a tighter, more up-tempo, and more vocal approach to its music. The overt jazz influences were replaced by strains of R&B/funk and Mexican folk music. The result was an album more dynamic than any since Santana III in 1971. "Let It Shine" (number 77), an R&B-tinged tune, became the group's first chart single in four years, and the album returned Santana to Top Ten status.

Customer Reviews

Are you kidding me?

You mean that I am the first to comment on this classic banger? Once you hear the first song you will be hooked. Carlos is a LEGEND. He knew Jimi Hendrix. No more needs to be said. Get the songs folks! BROOKLYN S T A ND U P Cooper Park baby 50 Debevoise Ave

Only 2 other reviews?!

This album is unbelievable - every song reaks with carlos influence, and it gets better and better with each song! building up to the grand finale of "let it shine" and "europa" both masterpeices and not only is this album underappreciated.. it needs to be among one of the best and most influential albums of all time!! It was santana's first album to reach gold status and his first to top 10 on the Billboard charts way back in 1976!!

More reviews needed!

Classic Santana! Europa must be one of the most beautiful songs ever written. I, like those who have made comments already, am very surprised at the lack of reviews.

Santana is the primary exponent of Latin-tinged rock, particularly due to its 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 it 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...
