5 stars Perhaps the best Santana studio album (I would like to say it's Moonflower, but Moonflower is pat live/part studio, so...). Released in Carlos Santana's chamanic/mystical phase, Caravanserai is, as its title says, a kind of orientalized album. No prog at all here, just beautiful psychedelic latino jazz music. World music.

Lots of great tracks here, I especially adore Just In Time To See The Sun, Waves Within, Song Of The Wind, Every Step Of The Way and the magnificent All The Love Of The Universe.

Last Santana album with Greg Rolie and Neal Schon (they'll create Journey later). First with Douglas Rauch, Tom Coster.

A masterpiece.
