EDITORS’ NOTES

Before the original band broke up, Santana added teenaged guitarist Neal Schon to trade licks with Carlos. The move made for an album that's all about instrumental firepower: It's telling that the single "No One to Depend On" had exactly one line of lyric. There's a pure Latin groove on "Guajira" and a rare Carlos vocal on the uplifting rocker "Everything's Coming Our Way." A loose translation of the closing number, Tito Puente's "Para Los Rumberos," gets it right: This one is "for the swingers."
