Aaahh, Lotus. I had it on vinyl in the 1970's. Wonderful wonderful stuff. I have some tracks already, but it must be heard entire to appreciate, thanks for giving that opportunity.

Did Carlos ever get 'further out' than this? I think not. He blazes like a midnight lighthouse here.

And I should mention that this is the legendary tour with Leon Thomas (associate of Pharoah Sanders) singing!

Thanks for this upload! I really like the old Santana stuff (pre-1980).. and I have quite a few of his records. I also just noticed your link list of blogs... check a few of them out now.

Wonderful! I've still got my LP in mint condition (the original gatefold edition, import I believe) packed away. Used to listen to it _a_lot_. Thanks for this! "The Hot Sauce Lounge" is a great place to visit everyday!! Love ya!

Lotus is supposed to be even better then Moonflower as a live album. I've got to review it soon on Ultimate Santana.
