Recording information: Pacific Recording Studios, San Mateo, CA (1969).
A two-disc set of early recordings by Santana, THE ANTHOLOGY primarily features 1969 studio sessions by the groundbreaking Latin-rock band (which at the time was still very much an ensemble, as opposed to a vehicle for Mr. Carlos). Although the group was still in its infancy, the signature Latin-psychedelia sound was already well established on these tunes, with Carlos's blistering guitar leads and Gregg Rolie's bold keyboard lines soaring over propulsive and contagious rhythms. While the various jams (most notably "Santana Jam" and "Jam in E") shine the spotlight on Santana's energetic and already-intuitive instrumental interplay, a soulful, Joe Cocker-inspired cover of the Beatles' "With a Little Help from My Friends" and the sauntering "Travellin' Blues," showcase the band's skill in interpreting pop and blues, respectively. Of the collection's two bonus tracks, DJ Rad's club-ready remix of "El Corazon Manda" seems wholly out of place, while a sprawling 1968 concert version of "Evil Ways" proves to be a lively addition that sheds further light on the group's pioneering early work.
