This show might be recorded in 1973, not sure
WOW, I never knew much about Santana & John McLaughlin. I wish I did now. This very jazzy show (in the mode of "Return to Forever") is super hot. Fantastic guitar playing just keeps coming at you full force. Long songs and who is laying down this great drum track. Very little vocals just jamming, Hot stuff.
