Despite an unusual mix (the audience is entirely in the left channel and Carlos is panned hard right), this is a very sweet recording of Santana in Spain. I wish
I could remember my university Spanish. Need I say more?

Please Note: This recording has cassette generation(s). Therefore, it has some cuts (D1@52:21:09,D2@27:37:27 & 46:40:40), possible noise reduction, and is incomplete. I welcome any analysis into the noise reduction and generational issues. I suspect that the cassettes I copied in 1995 (or their forebears) were copied from the master sbd source (DAT?) some time after the performance because of the "convenient" places they were flipped/cut. The third flip/cut might indicate a 120 minute DAT flip/cut.
Any set list corrections/additions are always appreciated. Thanks to Santanamigos for lots of extremely useful information.
Once again, PLEASE support the musicians and ENJOY...
