Limited 180gm audiophile vinyl LP pressing including insert. The third Carlos Santana solo album marks a surprising turn toward 1950’s Rock ‘n’ Roll and Tex-Mex, with covers such as Bo Diddley’s ‘Who Do You Love’ and Chuck Berry’s title song. The album features performances by Booker T & the MGs, Willie Nelson and the Fabulous Thunderbirds, and also Carlos’ father Jose singing ‘Vereda Tropical’ a song Carlos had first heard when his father was serenading his mother following an argument. Produced by veteran R&B producers Jerry Wexler and Barry Beckett, the album features an eclectic mix of sidemen, including Booker T. Jones of Booker T & the MG’s, Willie Nelson, Jimmie Vaughan, Flaco Jiménez, Stephen Kupka (of Tower Of Power) and many more. Havana Moon is a light effort, but it’s one of Santana’s most enjoyable albums, which may explain why it was also the bestselling Santana album outside the group releases in ten years.
