YouTube Channel (3gviii)
You know something is good when the artist that is playing it is blown away and Carlos was and is always fun to watch facially as he reveals every single feeling, emotion and expression throughout the duration of each song.
Performing stunning instrumental hit “Revelations” in Chicago, February 22, 1977, Santana is another level yet again with some of the most insane drum and guitar work we have ever seen.
One thing we really love about Santana is that they make their instruments sing for them, no vocals are necessary when you’re creating something so insanely beautiful and breathtaking. It may be safe to say that “Revelations” might just be their most underrated hit of all time with its subtle and soft beginning, but the evolution of the song unwinds wildly and takes you on a ride that you never even imagined possible.
Interesting Fact: When the band had some hits and became a popular live draw, some of the members started using drugs, and Carlos thought they were getting lazy at their shows. He briefly left the band, but rejoined them later on tour.
Do us a favor when you listen to this song: close your eyes. Let the slow beginning sweep you up as you carry through the undeniably beautiful evolution of the song and once you hit minute 3:20, your mind will be officially BLOWN. We promise, enjoy!
