Taking on a full-keel wooden sailboat whose racing days were long over, a boat that had almost sunk into the mud in its berth behind the St. Francis Yacht Club, in San Francisco, resulting in the need for a year’s worth of work before she would be ready to sail again, was an unfathomable undertaking.
The answer was simple for the Kaplans: the love of sailing together with the unique nature of Santana, and the knowledge that one of the wonderful elements of sailing is that it is a lifelong interest entertaining a level of activity as varied as the different types of boats on the water.
The Kaplans were quick to execute Santana’s rescue mission, and both agree, she is completely unlike any boat they’ve known.

Consider a modern Santana record, complete with guest performances from Rob Thomas (Matchbox 20), Dave Matthews, Wyclef Jean (The Fugees), Lauryn Hill and Eric Clapton, along with a handful of Grammys, and you have an argument for Carlos Santana being one of the biggest rock stars on the planet – again.

 Santana
Santana's guitar technique is fantastic here, and adding a second guitarist (Neil Schon, later the co-founder of Journey) seems to help (I'm told that's his blistering wah-wah pedal work on "Everybody's Everything").

Santana's playing is brilliant as usual, even on the duller tunes (Eagle-Eye Cherry's "Wishing It Was"), and you've got to give him credit for sticking a stinging attack on US immigration policy ("Migra") into such a commercial project.

 Abraxas by Santana CD at CD Universe
All the elements that made Santana's debut dazzling--roiling, polyrhythmic percussion, dense, pancultural influences, virtuoso guitar work--are here--sharpened and painted with the rich, heady sound of late-'60s San Francisco (Santana was just as exploratory and innovative as their hometown cohorts the Grateful Dead and the Jefferson Airplane).
Santana, Abraxas, and Santana (III) are the original classic gems from the Woodstock era lineup.
This is where all of the tunes from Santana's greatest hits are compiled from, however, these tunes are done so much more justice within the context tof the entire albums from which the came from.
