wasn't a fan Of Santana as a kid when these were all new . Now acknowledge there huge contribution to bringing latin rhythms to the Rock scene of its day and appreciate them much more. 
that's what happens when you get older and wiser i quess

Oh, I forgot I was on teh intarwebz for a split second! 
Straight up Latin rock from Carlos. And that album cover!
More cowbell!!! 
Some very tasty chops from Carlos.
God I love this song..brings back memories. Makes me want to find a way to include it in my start up blog

From a great musical soul. How many kick your ass angels can dance that gracefully on the head of a pin? 

I always wondered who played that anemic trumpet solo about half way through. Very uncharacteristic of this band.

Best of early Santana's albums. Jeden z najlepszych albumów Santany z początku dzialalnosci
Guajira es una cancion muy viva. El cantor esta rogando a la chica guajira bailar con el. A bailar todos!
I'll see those 34 and raise it 25.

The guitars, the guitars, the guitars......get high.  
This was Santana's funkiest album, the bass player David Brown laid some sweet stuff down

All the best!

That's somewhat drastic, or hyperbolic.  Which everything else are you referring to? My everything else is that this is a track one hears en route to musical heaven.
A year ago, I was enjoying the hell out of exactly this kind of music in Cafe Havana in Cartagena -- discovered it two years before and had to go back...now I am here and Yinna is there and I know the music is happening there still, and will be forever in my heart, mind and soul...

Had your medication today, turtle?
OK folks...here we go.

Carlos S. and Neil S. just freakin rock on this and the ryhthmn section is mind blowing. You get high on the guitar work and moving the body on the tempo.

This is what R&D is about!!!

This song is 40+ years old!

 Possibly "virtuous", but clearly virtuoso!

Too much Santana!! Seems every time we listen to RP Santana gets played. Ugh, that ground breaking guitar work just ruins the flow. I know I'm in the minority here but it's just too much.
 
Couldn't agree more! I don't personally think Santana is played too often here on RP...but I do think that whenever there's a great flow going on a tune of which he's anticipating a solo...he's always noodling and filling areas that don't need it. Almost like he doesn't know when to shut up. Especially when there's vocals present. This song isn't too bad though...

Just saw Carlos and band last night. He still puts on a great show.
I never get tired of listening to him play guitar.
Very nice!

I spent the last year taking portraits of guest appearing on the BBC's Breakfast News, for the programs website. The collection was then turned into a one off, 12x12 book which was auctioned for Children In Need, raising a tidy sum of money for the charity.It was a fun and a challenging project. I thank all the guest who were so generous and patient in allowing me to get the shot I needed. Here are some of those shots.

Dear Felix,

Not to worry, this was a compliment - an English one. See, the English (we know that Arserocket is English because he says 'arse' and not 'ass') say that something is the ' dog's bollocks'  when they really, really like it. I don't know why that is, but anyway, it was a compliment.

And I love the song, too.

Regards from cold Rotterdam
 
HAHAHA, OK OK, NOW I GOT IT, BEST FROM THE WET (AND A BIT COLD NOW ) BUENOS AIRES

This is head & shoulders my favorite Carlos song.  Dig this one.

A marginal improvement on his other dross....but he comes close to spoiling it all at the long awaited end.
This is an incredible album. My sister bought it, didn't like it, and gave it to me!
This is just a perfect compositon of great alternative rock n rooling. It´s like a backwards dinner. Start with a cremebrulé and take roasted duck wth raspbarry souse a rot grante´ng and drrrrag piis. Mums fillibabba!
So good! {#Music}
I guess I just don't like trumpets.

Also can be a slang for a person who lives in the country. As in the Yerba Buena song Guajira.
Sometimes, the perfect song is played at the perfect time.

You know, I think the guitar comes across as a little "clinical" sometimes. Maybe if they moved him backward on the sound a little and brought up the band some.

Or maybe they should have just asked him to leave the studio?

Sorry, had trouble distinguishing this from the construction noise outside.
wondered why I rated this an eight. Probably is, but not on quiet (work) speakers
How come the Santana bashers haven't chimed in yet?
love the live version of this song better...this not bad though
OMG!!! I'm all alone in my office today... and just found myself dancing! :dancingbanana:
