Kansas City 1979 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Uptown Theater, Kansas City, MO KS; September 2, 1979. Very good soundboard.

“This show has been [at Dime] twice but NOT in this quality!”

Thanks to the person who posted this show at Dime.

While Santana’s albums in the late ’70s - Inner Secret (1978) and Marathon (1979) - weren’t huge commercial hits, live, Santana (the band) were still rocking away. Interesting that while this tour was to promote the Marathon album, they left out the single, You Know That I Love You, from the setlist.

Artwork posted at ace.bootlegs (modified here) - Thanks!

  4. Great post! Maybe there is something wrong with my computer, but the CD front cover insert photo does not blow up to full size when clicked like the back tray insert does.
