Alex V makes an impressive claim for the Carlos Santana/John McLaughlin album Love, Devotion, Surrender:
Then I put the needle to this one, and wild haired angels appeared to slaughter the unicorns and revel in their rainbow-hued blood, erupting in fireworks and fairy circles of mushrooms, collapsing the universe into the coils of Carlos Santana's pickups. Really, listen to "Let Us Go Into the House of the Lord" at least once in your life and get cleansed for the dawn of The Next Phase.
This was one of the first albums I bought, circa 1973. The spiritual aspects (and maybe even the guitar magic) were beyond my comprehension at the time.
The performance is inspired by the Pharaoh Sanders version of the song, but Santana and McLaughlin take it to incredible heights of guitar-shredding ecstasy.
Alex V also goes on to suggest we don't confuse the artifact with the attraction. The question then becomes whether I still have this LP up in the attic or if I've achieved enlightenment and let it go.
