Review by JW May 2, 2003 (3 of 3 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:
"Eternal Caravan Of Reincarnation" - the images invoked by the title of the first track and the cover photo really position this album for me. A classic Santana effort, combining rock, salsa and jazz influences. I have the JSACD and the sonics are very good, though perhaps not right up there with the very best. The first three tracks are instrumental, setting up the mood for the rest of the line-up. Vintage Santana with those signature 'aching' guitar solo's, nice organ interplay and his famous conga's.

Check out the transition from "Just In Time To See The Sun" to "Song Of The Wind" - just priceless. Only Santana can take a driving rythmn and merge it into a clear, slow guitar solo like that. The guitar riffs reach for the skies. Gregg Rollie is the voice and together with Greg Walker he is one of the great Santana singers in my view. I cannot tell you how good this album is. Go get it. And I want "Moonflower" on SACD next!
