Hawaii 1970 [no label, 1CD]

Live at Waikiki Shell, Honululu, Oahu, Hawaii; May 22, 1970. Very good soundboard.

On October 26, 1970, Santana released their classic Abraxas album. It was recorded from April 17 to May 2, 1970 so at this show, the group was fresh from the recording session and was raring to give the new songs a go, songs like Se A Cabo, Black Magic Woman, Oye Como Va and Hope You’re Feeling Better.

This show has appeared as Aloha From Hawaii (Vintage Masters) and there is an incomplete 30-minute version that’s been circulating. This is the 55-minute show. Thanks to wildbluesage (and HermanLR) for sharing the tracks at HungerCity.

Uploader’s notes: “The CDR I received contained some spaces between the tracks. I’ve tried to reduce the hiccups as much as possible. Overall, I am pretty satisfied, though the result is definitely not flawless. Evil Ways already starts at the end of Toussaint…”

  2. this should be a barrel of fun - thank you :)

    By the way, people…
    I have Almost perfected an app that will allow you to browse a Darth-free BigO.

    EVERY comment that mentions Darth, is signed Darth, or is signed by one of the troll-Darths, pro or anti, will be blocked, never to darken your screen.

    Ay $99, it would be worth every cent. At $9.99, I reckon I will be onto a winner and a possible Nobel Prize.
    Watch this space, more to come…

    [Don’t worry 5YWNJ - yours will be free!]

    Peace all

  3. Thanks, bigO! Love Santana.

    I really appreciate the vast variety of genres posted here. It’s not all my cup of tea, but if it were, someone else would feel left out.

    Music, of all types, is worth, at least, a moment or two of listening.
