Beautiful Album cover day, Guys! I keep going back to the classics. Here is Santana’s Borboletto. It was his sixth studio album released in 1974 by CBS, Inc (Miracle Music and Berna Music).
Though his guitar playing was the main attraction, Santana leaves adequate room for percussion, saxophone, keyboard and vocals to shine. As a result the sound is a melange of Afro-Cuban Jazz, Fusion, Hard Rock, Jazz-Funk, Classic Rock.
The record has an eye-catching, shimmering, iridescent blue cover and sleeve displaying cool graphics including a butterfly (Borboletta in Spanish.) The album design was by Santana himself aided by Barry Imhoff. The art director was Ed Lee who is also a designer and photographer and has a large portfolio of record covers amongst other media as he is active even today. The credits for lettering have been given to Eloisa Vega.
Released in 1974 by CBS/Miracle Music/Berna Music AL 33135
