God-Like Genius
Zepfan | 10/17/2009

"Need I say more? Carlos at his best - peak period Santana and a famously hard to find, legendary classic album. The wife had this on vinyl and it cost a fortune in the seventies so fill your boots with this CD version for a fraction of the cost! All Killer - No Filler. Rock On!!"
Guitarist Carlos Santana And His "New" Band Get The House Ju
The Footpath Cowboy | Kingston, NY United States | 12/30/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"On LOTUS, the then-new incarnation of Santana really got the house jumping with a hot live show that, fortunately, was captured for posterity, even if it wasn't released in the United States until 1991. New vocalist Leon Thomas was even more soulful than Gregg Rolie, and the percussion section pounded away like nobody's business, creating plenty of room for leader/guitarist Carlos Santana to soar on lead guitar. And soar he did, playing like a fired-up hybrid of B.B. King, Otis Rush, and Gabor Szabo. If you loved the three CDs by the original Santana band, you'll love LOTUS."
Fantastic live album
John Alapick | Wilkes-Barre, PA United States | 08/03/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Santana's 1973 live album, Lotus, is a fantastic release that puts most live albums, including some of their own, to shame. Recorded during their creative peak, this is not the traditional Santana that most people know. The band's Latin rock sound is now even heavier on the percussion with large doses of funk, similar to what Miles Davis would later do on Agharta and Panagea. Even readings of their standards ("Black Magic Woman/Gypsy Queen", "Oye Como Va", etc.) are played with more vigor and fire than usual. Carlos Santana's guitar playing was simply wicked during these performances and the highlights are so many. His solos on "Gypsy Queen" and "Incident at Neshabur" are beyond sick. There are tons of instrumentals here, particularly on Disc 2 and there's not a dull moment to be found. Also worth noting is this appears to completely live; warts, feedback, and all. In my opinion, this is one of the five best live recordings ever released. Buy it."
