VARIOUS ARTISTS Sacred Sources, Vol. 1: Live Forever (1993)

Sacred Sources, Vol. 1
Live Forever
(1993)
Santana Pays His Respects
.

Intriguing release from Carlos Santana’s short-lived boutique label, Guts & Grace. According to the liner notes, Santana himself petitioned the estates of the participants to secure these, at-the-time, previously unreleased (in their entirety, anyway) live recordings. You get about 10 minutes from each artist, less from Coltrane, more from Hendrix. The sound quality is a varied bag, however, with Coltrane’s “Ogunde” faring the worst. The Stevie Ray track comes from his final 1990 tour, while readers tell us the Hendrix comes from 1970, at the Berkeley Community Theatre. It’s all obviously a labor of love for Santana, as he gathers together some of the inspirations that have gone into his own heady fusion of jazz, blues & rock. Sadly, a Vol. 2 never appeared. Back when Ebay was first kicking up dust, these went for $40-$50. Now Amazon sellers (HERE) have ‘em for a buck.

    the Jimi tracks come from the Berkeley Community Theatre 1970–don't remember if they're from the early or late shows!
