  1. Carlos was born near here in Guadalajara and plays in Guad every year. I’m gonna go this fall when he plays, I’ll let you know when it is, be a great time for a visit! Still remember, 2nd row Santa Monica Civic, the 2 drummers walking out and crossing on the stage waving to the crowd and running into each other. Hilarious melting moment.

    • You see how memories trigger other memories, that has worked exponentially for me with these posts. It’s like a time machine, with coordinates of where I lived, with whom, the months of the concerts we went to, drugs taken, jobs, girlfriends, etc., all trigger specific times and events.
      But the best sense-memory catalyst are the albums we listened to and the concerts we attended.
      Those left landmarks of the greatest times in our lives and in U.S. history – for real!
      The Santana drummers story was great!

  2. Thanks for the post! Reverence is what I feel every time that I pick up this album; it contains everything that is holy in music. When seeing this incarnation of the Santana lineup for the first time, the impression is that they were a gang and not a mere group of musicians. And they played as if they owned the turf. Belying their appearance, their music elevated, inspired and energized; it brought our head to a place so rarefied where only Hendrix could cause such transcendence. Mysticism, spirituality, earthiness, rock and fucking roll – Santana’s place in the pantheon of music is immutable and Abraxas is the sign at the portico which reads “All who enter here, leave all hope behind – of ever being the same”.

  3. Wow, Man, that comment was poetry! And true!
    It’s amazing to sit here now and look back and realize how important it all was. A time when music was integral within our lives on a daily basis and the fact that albums like Abraxas came into being at just the right time in history for our appreciation and enjoyment.
    Thanks for sticking with me on this archival journey – it means a lot..
