Both TREMENDOUS, imho. :tup :tup :tup 

I happened to see Santana in concert a few weeks ago. He's still a very powerful musician.

Agreed.  'Caravanserai' is a Desert Island Disc for me.  As for 'Borboletta", Leon Patillo was my favorite Santana singer ever.  Too bad in one sense he didn't stay on, but he had a higher calling., which I fully respect.

Another plus for Borboletta: the presence of Airto & Flora Purim.

I didn't know until recently that the butterfly design on the cover of Borboletta was Santana's "tip of the cap" to Purim's Butterfly Dreams

Another brilliant Santana album, IMO.

 

Thank you for posting this. I was wondering what to listen to, saw this and thought "why not?".

Thoroughly enjoying it, Leon T, Flora P, I had no idea! Last time I listened to Santana was probably "Moonflower' or 'Abraxas' in 1976 or thereabouts....I had no idea they were this Jazzy. A revelation!

Hey, I'm glad you enjoyed it! :)  

Alice Coltrane sits in on a couple tracks too.

Van Dyke Parks: Song Cycle. For many years now, I will play this album every now-and-then, to find out if I understand anything, just a sliver of something on this album. So far, after all these years, I don't understand a darn thing about what's going on.

PS: Let me add that I'm mystified by Van Dyke Parks reputation as a genius, I don't get a thing... I'm probably just dense.

I dutifully did the same thing with this album for years, finally gave up.  I will give Parks due credit for his contributions to 'Smile' (which is still, at heart, Brian Wilson), but the love ends there.

Which makes it even weirder as the album I'd been listening to previously was her 'Transfiguration'...
