Power of Peace Tracklist:
Santana has been a disappointment since he started playing for the money, I recently saw “ The Isleys” in concert and I left. It was a money grab as well. The highlight of this set is the old Chambers Brothers song,” Love , Peace, and Happiness - and that ain’t much. There’s far better Isleys recordings, and grab Caravanserai or Welcome if you don’t already have them to hear Carlitos at his peak.
I think the song selection and the vocal/instrumental arrangements do very nicely what they were intended to do: showcase superb musical talent who still sound great in a collaboration 50-plus years after they started their performance careers. Maybe the songs are old school (like me) but these guys don't sound like old men.
this is what the music industry needs right now, because there is a lot of trash being put out.These are two of the powerful acts of the past and if you were unable to see them perform during their hey day you missed some good performances,while these are remakes of classics they have been tastefully reworked,the standouts to me are "I Remember and Body Talk".I was fortunate to see these artist (Isley Brothers) during the seventies and early eighties when they were steam rolling everyone and I saw The Santana Band back in the day also, way to go guys. Peace. Hector V. (The One)
My 1st impression was that I was unimpressed (like OpattyrickO). However, I gave it a 2nd listen off the iTunes preview and went from 2 stars to 4 in my rating. I'll give it another listen and may actually buy the CD
