Eternal Caravan Of Reincarnation

  • Credited to Tom Rutley, Neal Schon and Mike Shrieve, "Eternal Caravan Of Reincarnation" is the title track of the 4th studio album by Santana, and was the start of a whole new ball game. According to Simon Leng in Soul Sacrifice: The Santana Story, this downtempo instrumental 'takes shape, with the sounds of double bass, phased piano and jazz guitar [reminding] the listener...of Pharaoh Sanders' "Astral Travelling"'. He appears to have forgotten the crickets; running to 4 minutes 25 seconds, this track and album cannot be appreciated at a first or probably even a tenth listening. "Eternal Caravan Of Reincarnation" segues into the guitar instrumental "Waves Within". >>
