Album Review

Shango is notable for featuring the return, in the role of co-producer and co-songwriter, of original Santana keyboardist Greg Rolie. The main producer, however, was Bill Szymczyk (James Gang, Eagles), who gave Santana an unusually sharp rock sound resulting in two more hit singles, "Hold On" (Number 15), and "Nowhere to Run" (Number 66), although the band once again slipped below the Top Ten and gold-selling status, with the album peaking at only Number 22, and even this was the highest Santana would get until Supernatural in 1999.

Customer Reviews

Shango

An album that never gets it's due. This is actually the Santana record I've listened to the most. Hold On is one of the great singles of the 80's and had a cool video to boot. The rest of the album is fabulous. Night Hunting time really rocks and the cover of Junior Walker & The All Stars' What Does It Take (To Let Me Win Your Love) is fabulous. Nowhere to Run was a minor single that topped out at around #66 on the charts. Pick it up!

The hidden jem of Santana's albums

This record/cd sat in my collection for years. Of course I've listen to it several times but recently just put it on my iPod and realized that it is a great album and know is one of my favorite's. But then again I'm a true Santana fan and appreciate and enjoy anything him and the musicians that play with him put out.

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...
