Yes I am
3 stars Without being a real virtuoso of the guitar, not even a composer, Santana is one of those musical personalities which produces a high quality albums. I do not think Santana has evolved all these years but I do not have any doubt about his creativeness using a very well recognized technique of playing guitar and this album to me represents his take off to a new style creation. Some classics of all times are being extracted from this album: Black Magic Woman, Oye como va and Samba pa'ti. Definitively the ones projected Santana to the stardom. Still these songs are 38 years later a good support of his live concerts. Good album but not essential though, could be a 3.5 stars.
Yes I am | 3/5 |
