Santana To Reissue 70’s Jazz Recordings

A quartet of classic Santana albums will be reissued Aug. 12 via Columbia/Legacy. All four titles — “Caravanserai,” “Moonflower,” “Love Devotion Surrender” (with Mahavishnu John McLaughlin), and “Welcome” — date back to the 1970s, and have been remixed and remastered for re-release. They feature newly written liner notes by Hal Miller; all but 1972’s “Caravanserai” feature bonus tracks.
“Caravanserai” marked the beginning of the Carlos Santana-led band’s jazz fusion foray. “Love Devotion Surrender”
The former features Carlos Santana and fellow guitarist McLaughlin, both at the time followers of spiritual guru Sri Chinmoy, joined by members of Santana and the Mahavishnu Orchestra. The resulting five-track album was a near-religious experience that kicked off with an interpretation of John Coltrane’s “A Love Supreme.” An alternate take of that cut, as well as an alternate take on Coltrane’s “Naima,” have been added to the reissue.
The title cut of “Welcome” is also a Coltrane original. The previously unreleased song “Mantra” bolsters the re-release of the album.
Finally, 1977’s double-disc “Moonflower” was a mix of live and studio material that grows here with the inclusion of single versions of three of the album’s songs: “Black Magic Woman,” “I’ll Be Waiting,” and the Zombies’ “She’s Not There.”

Copeland Settles With Doors Members

Former Police drummer Stewart Copeland has amicably settled his lawsuit against two surviving members of the Doors, now touring under the moniker the Doors of the 21st Century.Copeland had sued the group for breach of contract, claiming founding members Ray Manzarek and Robby Krieger reneged on a promise to use him during the tour and on an upcoming studio album.
This incarnation of the Doors has been peppered with lawsuits since last year. Original drummer John Densmore, who is not a part of the reunion, sued Manzarek and Krieger for breach of contract, claiming that after lead singer Jim Morrison died in 1971, the three remaining members agreed they would split any future profits from the Doors’ music equally. He alleged the members also agreed the band’s name would not be used unless all three of them were involved.
