Santana is the debut studio album by Latin Rock band Santana released in August 1969 via Columbia Records.

Over half of the album's length is composed of instrumental music, recorded by what was originally a purely free-form jam-band. At the suggestion of manager Bill Graham, the band took to writing more conventional songs for more impact, but managed to retain the essence of improvisation in the music.

The album was destined to be a major release, given a headstart by the band's seminal performance at Woodstock earlier that August.

As Ben Fong-Torres noted in his excellent liner notes to the ’98 reissue, “Santana brought a generation of Latin American kids into the rock and roll community…but the reverse is also true: Santana introduced rockers to Afro-Latin rhythms.”

Here was a totally new and exciting sound that gathered together a melting pot of influences (Latin, blues, jazz, pop, r&b, for starters) without bothering with the superfluous excesses of other San Francisco bands, thereby cutting the exotic music down to its spiritual essence.

Although Jingo only reached No. 56, Evil Ways the second single was a U.S. Top 10 hit. The album peaked at No.4 on the Billboard 200 pop album chart and No. 26 on the UK Albums chart.

The beautiful and distinctive cover art was designed by Lee Conklin, an artist best known for his psychedelic poster art of the late 1960s.

This LP is a "Legacy Vinyl" limited release on 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl through Columbia Records and pressed in 2016 in Europe.
