Delivered with a level of passion and soul equal to the legendary sonic charge of his guitar, the sound of Carlos Santana is one of the world's best-known musical signatures. For more than four decadesfrom Santana's earliest days as a groundbreaking Afro-Latin-blues-rock fusion outfit in San FranciscoCarlos has been the visionary force behind artistry that transcends musical genres and generational, cultural and geographical boundaries.
Best known as the drummer in Jimi Hendrixs Band of Gypsys, Buddy Miles also had a lengthy solo career that drew from rock, blues, soul, and funk in varying combinations.
After backing John McLaughlin on 1970s Devotion, Miles returned to the role of bandleader and recorded his most popular album, Them Changes, in 1971; it stayed on the charts for more than a year, and the title cut became Miles signature song. From December 1971 to April 1972, Miles toured with Carlos Santana, which produced the CBS-released concert document Carlos Santana & Buddy Miles! Live!; recorded inside an inactive volcano in Hawaii, the album sold very well, climbing into the Top Ten.
"From December 1971 to April 1972, Carlos Santana and several other members of Santana toured with drummer/vocalist Buddy Miles, a former member of the Electric Flag, and Jimi Hendrix's Band of Gypsys. The resulting live album contained both Santana hits ('Evil Ways') and Buddy Miles hits ('Changes'), plus a 25-minute, side-long jam... The album went into the Top Ten and sold a million copies." - William Ruhlmann, allmusic.com
