Carlos Santana : Selected solo and collaborative releases

The Santana Blues Band was formed at the end of 1966 or start of 1967 in San Francisco initially playing blues material. The personnel of the group changed regularly during the next two years with Carlos Santana and Greg Rolie being the only constants. The group started playing larger venues in San Francisco during 1968. In early 1969 the group recorded material that has subsequently been included on many budget compilations. They played at Woodstock to great acclaim and at the end of the year released their first album on Columbia. At some point in 1969 the group name was abbreviated to Santana. Second and third albums were released in 1970 and 1971 but the latter year saw further personnel changes. Through the years since then the group has changed personnel and musical direction a number of times.
