Compared to the fusion flavor of BORBOLETTA, AMIGOS marks a return to the harder Latin rock of albums like ABRAXAS. The set features one of the stronger post-Woodstock lineups, with maestro Tom Coster on organs and Ndugu Leon Chancler and the stalwart Armando Peraza covering the substantial rhythmic foundation.
"Take Me With You" is an Afro-Cuban rock romp from the very first, stinging notes of Santana's guitar, slowing only towards the end for a gentle, organ-laced Sunday afternoon groove-out. "Let Me" is brisk, thumping bass and clavinet funk of a hot-blooded order, with vocalist Greg Walker spreading soul-mantras all about. The Iberian-Salsa-flavored "Gitano" offers a rare spotlight on Armando Peraza, written and sung entirely by the longtime Santana percussionist. Nothing quite compares, however, to the bittersweet balladic glory of the classic Santana instrumental, "Europa." The deep sustain of his bluesy, wailing melody gives way to a searing wah-guitar finale worthy of unsettling the foundations of buildings.
