Santana in Los Angeles, 1971

Santana live at The Forum, Los Angeles, CA – March 22, 1971


This set captures the original (and my personal favorite) Santana lineup just after the release of their classic Abraxas and just before the release of their also excellent Santana III.Neal Schon has joined the band on second guitar at this point giving them a harder edged sound overall. Schon and keyboardist Gregg Rolie would soon depart to form Journey. The real surprise here is a special guest appearance by Jose Feliciano on guitar and vocals during the encore. There aren’t many good sounding documents of the original Santana lineup in their prime so be sure to check this one out.
