Review

By the release of Amigos, the Santana band's seventh album, only Carlos Santana and David Brown remained from the band that conquered ~Woodstock, and only Carlos had been in the band continuously since. Meanwhile, the group had made some effort to arrest its commercial slide, hiring an outside producer, David Rubinson, and taking a tighter, more up-tempo, and more vocal approach to its music. The overt jazz influences were replaced by strains of RB/funk and Mexican folk music. The result was an album more dynamic than any since Santana III in 1971. "Let It Shine" (number 77), an RB-tinged tune, became the group's first chart single in four years, and the album returned Santana to Top Ten status. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi
