  CARAVANSERAI - LoveToKnow Article on CARAVANSERAI
Should the caravanserai be a small one, the merchants and their goods alone find place within, the beasts of burden being left outside.
Sometimes a municipality takes on itself toconstruct and maintain a caravanserai; but in any case the institution is tax-free, and its revenues are inalienable.
When, as sOmetimes happens, those revenues have been dissipated by peculation, neglect or change of times, the caravanserai passes through downward stages of dilapidation to total ruin (of which only too many examples may be seen) unless some new charity intervene to repair and renew it.

 The Caravanserai
The word 'caravanserai' is derived from the Persian "karwan," which signifies a company, or "caravan," of travelers in a serai (large inn).
It is believed that these caravanserais, also known as "khans," were originally an enclosure protecting a well which then developed into a unique type of architectural complex.
The main function of a caravanserai was to receive travelers and merchandise, and therefore space within them was provided in order to store a variety of goods to be traded.

 The Music Box: Santana - Caravanserai
In the early 1970s, Santana was focused primarily on interpreting the burgeoning jazz-fusion scene, and three of his albums from this period (Caravanserai, Love Devotion Surrender, and Welcome) as well as a concert recording from 1977 (Moonflower) have recently been remastered and reissued.
All he really does is expand upon the instrumental segments of his first three albums, but this time, he parlays them into a cohesive suite of songs that is, at times, as breathtakingly beautiful as Miles Davis’ In a Silent Way and, at other times, as frenetic as Davis’ Bitches Brew.
Right from the start, he charts out Caravanserai’s sonic space, beginning with the serene sound of crickets to which is added the guttural groan of saxophone and a percussive groove straight from John Coltrane’s Africa/Brass.

 Amazon.co.uk: Caravanserai: Music   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-19)
Despite the success of the first 3 albums, by late 1971 Carlos Santana had become disillusioned with the rock n roll lifestyle and its trappings and felt that the music he had been making was no longer what he wanted to do.
Clearly, this caused tensions within the band and Caravanserai was recorded with a different line up from the first 3, although Rolie and Shrieve were still present (this was Rolie's last album with the band however).
Caravanserai has always reminded me of that concert and it still holds up today I've always thought it the 'one' This remastered edition is splendid, all the detail is there particularly on La Fuente Del Ritmo

 Caravanserai by Santana CD
Though there were hints of jazz fusion on Santana's first three albums, 1972's CARAVANSERAI introduced a dramatic shift in the band's sound, away from essentially pop-based music to a freer, more harmonically complex jazz/rock hybrid.
Also of note is bassist Doug Raunch, who replaces David Brown's meat-and-potatoes R&B playing with a more technically accomplished style that edges the group closer to Tower of Power territory.
A dark and perhaps intentionally non-radio-friendly album that likely shocked many fans upon its release, CARAVANSERAI is an underrated, but important and fascinating, chapter in Santana's history.
