Carlos Santana has today’s almost forgotten track

I’m aware that most of the time this space features bands that had relatively short lives, enabling the concept of almost forgotten, but sometimes a major act, still working, has material that deserves to be remembered yet suffers from the fact that they had so many other tracks that get all the airplay…Santana is an example and this live performance of Europa is the proof in the pudding…many members have passed through Carlos Santana’s band since he emerged at the end of the 60s, but as long as he remains the focus, who could complain? His tone, his sustain, and his musicality are matched by few. If I had to pick a favourite Santana track it would probably be Samba Pa Ti, but this one isn’t very far down the list…


Greg Simpson

Greg Simpson firmly believes his career in the music industry officially began on March 14, 1965 when a band gave him ten dollars as commission for helping them find a gig. He hasn’t looked back since then and looks forward to celebrating his fiftieth in 2015 with an enormous party paid for by the hundreds of dollars he’s made since then.

His career has covered all aspects from radio for many years, and including working for record labels, artists and, since 1992,Canadian Music Week where he programs the radio stream and manages all conference streams and events in real time annually. He also attends half a dozen conferences a year doing research for CMW and is generally accepted as a knowledgeable cat with a few stories to tell. At the root of it all, though, is his undying love for music and musicians.
