Santana’s appearance at the Rynearson Stadium (Ypsilanti, MI) on May 25, 1975, was originally broadcast on the King Biscuit Flower Hour radio show. Opening with an inspired pairing of Peter Green's Black Magic Woman and Gabor Szabo's Gypsy Queen, Santana display an explosive showcase of virtuosity and improvisational flare throughout the show with familiar material from the band’s earlier repertoire receiving a rapturous response. Such fluent and imaginative musicianship is rarely witnessed and simultaneously recorded, but this 1975 concert displays compelling musical talent played with emphatic furore. The 1975 Ypsilanti performance clearly rivals that of the band’s famed Japanese shows recorded two years earlier. Klondike’s retrospective release of this seminal appearance from 1975 captures the entire recorded performance and celebrates a period of Santana’s work that remains pivotal to their legacy.
