SANTANA: Independence Day 1981 (CD)

They tell us....

The 80s began on a high note for Latin Rock pioneers Santana with the release of Zebop! in April 1981.
By this time, Scottish vocalist Alex Ligertwood, formerly of The Jeff Beck Group, had joined the ranks, and the record also featured worldrenownedCuban percussionist Armando Peraza.
Two months after the release of Zebop!, Santana played a 4th July show at the 7,200-seater Cape Cod Coliseum in South Yarmouth,Massachusetts.
Featuring a set-list including many Santana classics, such as ‘Black Magic Woman’, ‘Soul Sacrifice’ and ‘She’s Not There’, alongside anumber of cuts from the current album, the unparalleled and unique guitar work of frontman Carlos Santana cements a quite mesmerisingperformance - released here on CD for the first time - for all fans of this legendary collective to finally appreciate in its completion.
