Santana Welcome on 180g LP
Friday Music / Santana 180 Gram Vinyl Series
Mastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and Pressed at R.T.I.
By 1973 Carlos Santana and company were fast becoming one of the world’s most beloved rock/fusion bands. After several studio albums and the two collaboration albums - Carlos Santana & Buddy Miles Live and Love Devotion Surrender with John McLaughlin - the world was now buzzing around the energy that these superstars would lay down with the soon to be rock/jazz/funk powerhouse Welcome.
They more than delivered with an explosive 9-song set featuring a cross section of Santana classics like "Going Home," "Light Of Life" and "When I Look Into Your Eyes," plus the exotic rhythms and jams on workouts like Santana and John McLaughlin’s "Flame-Sky," and the stellar John Coltrane masterpiece interpretation "Welcome."
Along with the legendary Carlos Santana on guitar and vocals, he is joined by original Santana band mates Michael Shrieve on his dynamic drums, Doug Rauch on his prolific bass, Jose Areas on hard hitting percussion, plus the brilliant acid jazz superstar Leon Thomas on vocals, the celebrated Latin percussionist Armando Peraza, the legendary John McLaughlin on guitar, Joe Farrell on flute, and the stellar keyboard work of long time Santana associate Tom Coster.
Friday Music continues their Santana 180 Gram Vinyl Series with a gatefold vinyl release of the 1973 smash Welcome, mastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and pressed at R.T.I.
