This remaster sounds awesome, which is a blessing given the fact that some remastering jobs really mess up the sound quality compared to an original vinyl pressing. The only complaint I have is that the insert here is not faithful to the original LP packaging, which is a real shame. The back cover of the original LP was this great outdoors shot of Carlos and John standing each to one side of Sri Chimnoy, who is dressed in bright orange with a big, bright grin on his face, contrasting with the stark, white suits and somewhat stoic aspects of Santana and McLaughlin. The original gatefold had on one side a rather staged picture of Santana and McLaughlin sitting on the floor around Chimnoy, who is in a chair, and on the other side an essay written by Sri Chimnoy. My only guess is that Sony/Legacy weren't allowed the rights to re-use Chimnoy's image or writing. The original LP was impressive--I cut out the back cover and put it on my wall. The spiritual-ness of it really contrasted with a lot of the demons & wizards & general stoner-decadence photos/illustrations that covered most of my rock albums and walls.
