Santana Welcome on 180g Import LP from Speakers Corner

Many of Santana’s rock-addicted fans could well have understood the inviting word Welcome on the white LP cover of the band's fifth album as an attempt to break away from the spiritual aura of his previous album Love Devotion Surrender. And the musicians certainly managed to produce a rich Latin feeling, with such titles as "Samba De Sausalito" and "Yours Is The Light." But luckily their concessions did not alienate them from their die-hard fans in that they came up with a sort of copy of the rhythmical Caravanserai.

However, Santana and company truly attempted something altogether new with this 1973 release as well. Encouraged by the success of the jazz-fusion formula created by Miles Davis and his disciples, Santana combined his virtuoso guitar playing with specially chosen electronic features. The amazingly acrobatic jazz vocalists Leon Thomas and Wendy Haas contributed complicated, quirky parts and the maestro himself vies with John McLaughlin in a dense conflict carried out on their instruments in "Flame Sky." This is an album with a strong intellectual drive and offers the discerning listener a dazzling blend of Latin, jazz and fusion sounds.
