3 stars I like Shango a lot, not as good as Zebop but a worthy follow on nevertheless. The lineup is much the same as it's predecessor and it also has Gregg Rolie joining for some organ playing. The great voice of Alex Ligertwood is still there and the ubiquitous Carlos Santana strutting his stuff.' The Nile ' is a great opener to Shango and the instrumental ' Warrior' is equally as good. Side 2 of Shango for me is the better half though and the Hawaiian like ' Body Surfing' is just great foot tapping, tequila slugging stuff as is the rocking " Let Me Inside' up your heart!!'.When I see what some bands were beginning to produce in the 80's I cringe but Santana up to 1982 anyways were definitely not one of these. A good album and a solid three stars.
