Revelations

Songfacts®:

  • Co-written with keyboard player Tom Coster, this largely guitar based instrumental is what might be termed a leftover from Santana's flirtation with Eastern mysticism. Though not as well known as "Samba Pa Ti" or "Europa", it is no way inferior, and shows another side to his indisputable virtuosity. The studio version from the 1977 album Festival runs to 4 minutes 36 seconds.
  • As well as his trademark heavy sustain, Carlos uses the wah wah pedal towards the end of the track. >>
