About this deal

Remnants of the original band were always there, but to stay relevant, the band was shifting and growing.

Soul Sacrifice/Head, Hands & Feet" (Santana, Gregg Rolie, David Brown, Marcus Malone/ Graham Lear) – 14:01 (Live) Dance Sister Dance (Baila Mi Hermana)" ( Leon "Ndugu" Chancler, Coster, David Rubinson) – 7:45 (Live) Photography By [Inside Booklet: Santana Band] – Dennis Callahan, Don Briggs, Ethan Russell, Richard McCaffree fell like listening to it as a whole. A real shame. However, it does have some real good stuff here,The new studio material? "Transcendance" is probably my favourite of those, followed by "I'll Be Waiting.""Dawn / Go Within", "Zulu" and "Bahia" are all very nice, though slightly unessential. "Flor d'Luna" is not my favourite kind of music, but a fine performance, "El Morocco" is quite impressive, and the cover of "She's Not There" more than equals the Zombies original, though originality is a value in itself. Actually, the Santana version of "She's Not There" was played so frequently on the radio throughout my childhood and teenage years that I used to think this one was an original version.

Suggestions are The studio cuts are incredibly contemporary, while maintaining a fusion sound, and Moonflower would mark the end of this Santana fusion era, heading into Inner Secrets which I flat out refuse to own.

written in that style (I`ll be Waiting), while others still maintain the earlier Santana sound (the instrumental Zulu). Even the brazilian connection was maintained through the obvious Bahia. The bestIn all, Moonflower could have been a fine studio and a reasonable live album if the live and studio I just cannot get into Santana R&B for the most part, it is just not the band's forte, although out of all the vocalist the band had, Greg Walker may have been their best soulster, and "Transcendence" is a great tune. At this stage of my life I was already beginning to discriminate against songs that gained radio popularity despite the fact that some songs that I deemed "great" did happen to achieve fame and fortune, but Santana's "hits" actually turned me away from seeking his albums out for a long time. It was Moonflower that helped me understand that sometimes an album's "best" songs (i.e. the ones I liked most) were not always the ones chosen for radio play as "hits." Also, disco was in full swing, as can be told through some of these rhythm styles. Thus songs like "I'll Be Waiting" and "She's Not There" were not my favorites. The playful ones, like "Jugando", and "Zulu", "Bahia", "Dance Sister Dance", and "Soul Sacrifice/Head, Hands & Feet" attracted my admiration, but it was really the seductive melodies of "Europa" and "Flor d'luna" and "Transcendance" that made me want to sit up and take notice. Then there is the finale, the great, great jam of "Savor/Toussaint l'overture"--one cookin', happy-to-be-alive song that I always loved to blast on my stereo.
