ORIGINAL POST

A Moonflower from Santana
Posted:Monday, 03/11/2013 at 04:03am by Greg Easterling
We began a new week this morning with Carlos Santana and the legendary band that bears his name. Today we spotlighted Moonflower, the mostly live 1977 album that was recorded at concerts in London, Munich, Paris and elsewhere in France.

By this point nearly all the individuals who played in Santana at Woodstock were gone; only Carlos and percussionist Jose "Chepito" Areas remained. However, the mid-Seventies incarnation of Santana was in many ways equally skilled with musicians such as Tom Coster, Pete Escovedo and Paul Rekow playing both older and newer Santana material in a fresh but still familiar way.

Moonflower was the first new Santana album to penetrate the Top Ten since 1972 and the last to do so until 1999's massively popular Supernatural CD. We listened to Side 4 this morning highlighted by the medley of "Savor" and "Toussaint L'Overture".
