With Santana’s fifteenth studio album Freedom he moved away from the poppy sound of his previous recordings and returned to the band’s original Latin rock. At that moment the band consisted of nine members, many of them already working together on other records. Songs of Freedom is the centrepiece of the album, and one of the most petulant songs in rock history. The funky grooves sets everything on fire, while Buddy Miles sings his texts. The great production and engineering makes this a really fine and versatile record.
