Santana III (Bonus Tracks)

by Santana
Santana III by Santana
Released: Mar 1998
Label: Columbia/Legacy
Santana III isn't Santana's most loved album -- that's most definitely Abraxas -- but it is his most intense and ultimately rewarding. Right from the opening notes of "Batuka" everything here is heavier, darker. Gregg Rolie's organ stabs fluctuate between orgiastic and straight up violent. Carlos, meanwhile, delivers one nasty lick after another. By track two the group can be heard chanting "I ain't got nobody that I can depend on" over and over. So yeah, Santana III is basically the dude's Riot.
