Well done Atticrock,
yes there is a bit of hiss but this show is good & I think best left as it is.

I always liked this unbalanced recording because the percussion is louder than everything else! Carlos' guitar is dwarfed by the percussionists' attack! Sometimes i run on the treadmill to this sucka and it always gets me pumped. If you love latin percussion & drumming this one is essential!

Sounds like a cool album! Is it the original (at least, what I think of as the original) Santana band? (Carlos, Rolie, Shrieve, Carabello, Areas, Brown).

That's the formation in this recording but not the first Santana line-up, check it out here.
