(Former lead singer of Santana/Journey)
Louisville, CO 2012 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Louisville Street Faire, Steinbaugh Pavillion, Louisville, CO; August 10, 2012. Very good audience recording.

Gregg Rolie was one of the founding members of the Santana band and known for being the vocalist on Black Magic Woman and Evil. He left the group in 1971. He was also in Journey between 1973 and 1980.

On this Louisville show, Rolie relives those Santana days.

In an interview with, Rolie talked about the early Santana music:

Well, it’s exciting! The main thing about the music that we created back then, the six of us, was the fact that it’s kind of like blues, it never goes away. It is what it is, and it still has the same excitement, the crowds still get just as crazy as they always have listening to this music, and they love it. And I love playing it. Like I’ve always said, If I couldn’t play this right, I’d rather drive a cab. So I’m still in!

Thanks to Patrick H who recorded the show; and to sweet_music_maker for sharing the tracks at Lossless Legs.

  2. Too bizarre, to see a boot from my home town, wonder if he caught the Smithereens the week before?

    By Rob on Aug 12, 2012

  3. he was likely on tour so he probably got into town the nite before the show. no more than a day or two earlier.
    there are times when musicians who dont have a grueling schedule will spend more time in a town or city than they normally need to like nyc or la, ca or chicago etc.
    many musicians have their fave cities that they like to spend time in. i didnt even know there was a louisville co. wow.
