Carlos Santana

Album of the Week - 2-4-23

Afternoon folks!

This week I've got a couple of good harmonica blues albums from James Cotton and a compilation of (Little) George ("Harmonica") Smith's early recordings. Then there's a mess of blues rock from Roy Buchanan, Carlos Santana and Buddy Miles, Hot Tuna and Bonnie Bramlett. Following that, there's another Richard & Linda Thompson album and finally there's some serious prog rock from Lenny White (from Return To Forever, for those of you following along in the hymnals) - Al DiMeola makes an appearance on the album.

Take care and have a great weekend everybody!
