Limited edition 180-gram gatefold LP
Mastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and pressed at R.T.I.
1974 saw Carlos Santana and the Santana Band evolving into one of the world's most beloved arena-packing bands of all time. After several studio albums and the two live albums Lotus and Carlos Santana & Buddy Miles Live!, the world was now buzzing about what these superstars would lay down next with the classic Borboletta.
Featuring a cross section of Santana hits like "Mirage," "Practice What You Preach," and "Give and Take," plus the exotic rhythms and jams on workouts like "One With the Sun," and the stellar orchestrated "Aspirations," Borboletta was yet another giant step for Santana and company with Carlos' guitar work as explosive as ever.
The guitar icon is joined by original Santana band mates Michel Shrieve on dynamic drums, both Doug Rauch and David Brown on prolific bass, Jose Areas on hard hitting percussion, plus the brilliant R&B and funk superstar Leon Patillo on vocals, the celebrated Latin percussionist Armando Peraza, the legendary team of Airto on percussion and Flora Purim on vocals, Stanley Clarke on bass, and the stellar keyboard work of long time Santana associate Tom Coster.
The original vinyl version of this masterpiece has been out of circulation for decades — that is until now... Friday Music continues their exclusive Santana 180-gram vinyl series with the groundbreaking first-time North American release of the 1974 smash Borboletta, mastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and pressed at R.T.I.
