This will be my last and final post on "Audiogon"; some will be happy, some will be sad, but I'm moving on.
I'm making this post in honor of "Carlos Santana", one of the greatest musicians of my generation, and I say this with the authority vested in me as a music lover.
"Woodstock"; in August of 1969, Carlos Santana let the world know who he was and what he could do with a guitar; from that time on, he only needed one name "Santana".
"Epiphany" is defined as an appearance or manifestation; Santana was both, he was the appearance of a guitar deity, and the manifestation of "Latin Rock"; plus, for me personally, a trip into another reality.
"Abraxas" Singing Winds, Crying Beasts; I wore out three LP's of that album, and presently own 1 new LP, plus 2 CD's; to say that I like that album is an understatement.
Santana had "it", and he still got it.
