Carlos Santana @ACL_Live, Sept 12, 2011

I first saw Santana at the Texas Pop Music Festival in Lewisville, TX in 1969. It was 2 weeks after Woodstock and almost all the same performers were there. It was just as big a deal in Texas as Woodstock was in NY, only the media wasn’t there….3 days of wildness like The Metroplex hadn’t ever seen. Funny how history gets made by where the writers are… Anyway, Santana played a lot of the same songs in 2011 as he did in 1969. They sounded great then and now. He has a remarkable ability to connect with the audience with just his guitar & his heart.
