Santana: Moonflower

Mick Brown, Sounds, 15 October 1977

THIS IS THE album that should have been called 'A Period of Transition'. Not that it has anything to do with Van Morrison, but it does have a lot to do with an artist coming to the end of one phase in his career and wondering where the hell to go next. Thinking about it, perhaps 'Holding Action' would be a better title, because that is what Moonflower is.
