“The Creator has a Master Plan” with Leon Thomas/Santana

9 posts in this topic

I certainly like  the original release of Lotus.  Another album's worth of outtakes is sweet, if it doesn't break the bank.    That being said, with that group, I prefer Leon Patillo on vocals (saw them at Atlantic City Raceway along with CSNY ca. 1975, and of course he is the vocalist on Borbeletta).  I never thought Thomas was a good fit with them.

Has anyone had a chance to listen to this edition of Lotus?  Any comments?

It's interesting but perhaps not essential. It's a Thomas showcase and he's a bit subdued here on this track. I like it, I'm glad to have it and the whole release is great sonically, and just overwhelming in the quality of the printing and presentation of the artwork. If I were to get this just for that one track. . . I'd be disappointed.

I'll have to get that one of these days. 

FYI, there's a better price here: importCDs

That's a GREAT album.  Probably my favorite Leon Thomas of all.

The recent japanese "Lotus" release carries a sumptuous sound and the the artwork is no less than sensational .... (IMO) will turn into a sought after collector`s items in not too distant future ....
