When I was a kid I really got into Santana's Caravanserai album - still listen to it a lot these days. But I was unable to get into the Santana / McLaughlin album Love Devotion Surrender. When I was in Cape Cod for vacataion, I picked up the CD and play it often now. Not sure what changed in me, but every once and a while I like to re visit a band or an album to see if I missed something. Maybe I will re check the Borboletta CD and see if I like anything on that CD. I liked a few things, mostly Mike Shrieve's drumming if I remmeber right.

Anyone have any thoughts on this period of Santana?
Also, do you ever find your self going back to a band or CD to re check it out?

I think "Borboletta" is a massively under-rated and awesome album.

Caravanseri is probably my favorite, however Love, Devotion and Surrender and Barboletta are close

I Love everything that Carlos ever did

The Welcome album was one of my fav's when I'd come home from school. I'd put my head phones on a doze off while listening to flame sky and be in another world with Carlos and John Mc trading licks. I do believe LDS is on that album too...Welcome it's Carlos White album

1972 to 1976 was sort of a transitional and messy period for Santana. The classic Woodstock era lineup had broken up, and a multitude of new musicians and singers came and went. It became quite difficult to call it a band anymore as the personnel changes became too confusing!

Nevertheless, I love the Santana/Buddy Miles Live album, which features the jamming classic "Free Form Funkafide Filth". This album was recorded live in Hawaii.

WELCOME also contains "Love Devotion and Surrender" on it. Features vocals from Carlos and Flora Purim, a great singer who was married to percussionist Airto Moriera.
This is a pretty good album, contains a lot of electric piano from new keyboardist Tom Coster.

My favorite LP from the mid to late Seventies is MOONFLOWER, but this is definitely from another Santana era.

Interesting period in Santana band history. To me, Caravanserai is a fantastic piece of music, straddling the commercial, energetic side with the jazzier, more exploratory. I'll second those thoughts on Lotus, too, if you like Caravanserai you need to hear Lotus, too.

I bought that LP when it was 1st released.had it for years & then lost it in my house fire along w/most of my LP's...I looked for it again for years & never had any luck finding it...then just last year,I walked into the Flea Mkt. (where i buy a lot of my vinyl) & there it was...right in front of the stacks .........for One dollar !!!!! Cannot tell you how stoked i was over that find !!

I never liked Love, Devotion, Surrender. I always thought Carlos just sounded terrible trying to match McLaughlin's speed and accuracy.

Carlos is at his best when he's melodic and paced. On Love Devotion..., he's manic, and it doesn't suit him well.
