Albums I Haven't Listened To In Over 30 Years - Moonflower
I'm sure that we all have albums in our collections which we have not listened to in a number of years.
I have gone for a short series of those I have not listened to for over 30 years and in some cases for considerably longer.
It is a relatively short series as many of the albums I bought at the time were on pre-recorded cassette and are currently rotting in a landfill somewhere.
The first culprit is Moonflower a 1977 album by Santana.
Carlos and the boys churn out some Latin percussion and jazz fusion over four sides in an album that features a drum solo -FFS!
I obviously haven't listened to the whole thing but gave their cover of the Zombies She's Not There and the instrumental Zulu which I remember quite liking at the time a quick blast.
Actually these two tracks weren't as bad as I thought that they may be.
I am still eternally grateful, however, that punk came along and saved us from all this!
