Unable to give this 3 1/2 stars, I lean towards 4. Those who rate this CD low miss the point. They're either unable to seperate Carlos' from his harder edged guitar laced rock music of old, or are "Supernatural" saturated comtemporaries who expect some current flash in the pan "star" to be present on any Santana music of value. Or, they simply didn't notice the title of this CD. I mean to say the song, "Vereda Tropical," is the worst song on the CD because it sounds like a marriacci night club band...um.. eh hem... THE CD IS NAMED "HAVANA MOON!!!" If anything this song is the most definitive- the perfect backdrop to the picturesque Havana Moon setting atop the water at night that graces the cover of the CD. Not to belabor the point, but this is a cover of a classic, old mexican ballad of a broken hearted man singing of his sorrow that only Santana could do as magnificently as he does on this CD. I guess remakes have to be of songs (or even movies come to think of it) that are not even old enough to be redone yet, or of songs so fresh on the minds of contemporary listeners that they even garner a listen. I chuckle at some of the more recent reviews of this album that seem to reak of desperation for the type of "Supernatural" commercialism that only comtemporaries or philistines would expect, indeed, demand of Santana music. Carlos does seem a little indecisive in that choosing, with the first half of the CD leaning in that direction, but coming off somewhat uninspired.Read more ›

The middle section of Carlos Santana's career saw the creation of numerous forgettable albums. Havana Moon is the gem in the midst of this detritus. It is a totally unique amalgamation of a wide variety of American musical styles. Where else can you hear Booker T., Willie Nelson, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Jimmie Vaughn, Greg Brown, Chuck Berry, and Carlos Santana all on the same album? NOWHERE, MY FRIEND! And the best part is that all of the cuts are done well. This album presages Santana's current penchant for guest stars, but Havana Moon is done in a much more laid-back, mellow style than his current efforts. Get this, relax, remember, and wonder.

Great album but I had the original Japanese release on CD and they sound identical. Even the db level was the same. If your inspiration is to upgrade then "this isn't the droid you are looking for". If you don't have this album it is a Santana classic with amazing guests like: Booker T, Fabulous Thunderbirds, Willie Nelson and Tower of Power horns etc on various tracks.

Havana Moon was first released in the Spring of 1983 and , for me, it's one of the more successful releases in the Santana and Carlos Santana catalog. Guests on the album include The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Willie Nelson, Booker T. & The MGs and Jose Santana. The album contains a fairly heavy Tex Mex feel and it really works well. The opening Watch Your Step and Lightnin' rock hard. Who Do You Love isn't jammed out in the way that Quicksilver used to but it rocks hard. The instrumental Mudbone has more of a Latin jazz feel while One With You has a nice laid back R&B feel. Ecuador is quite short while Tales of Kilimanjaro is another great instrumental. The album's title track is very well done and Daughter of the Night has the same feel as One With You. They All Went To Mexico is a great, if dark, song and really benefits from Willie Nelson's singing while the album is rounded out with Carlos' dad Jose singing Vereda Tropical.

The title Havana Moon was a tad bit misleading to say the least. I guess I was expecting traditional Cuban latin classic songs covered a la Santana style. Instead, the first two tracks are more of a throwback to the almost 50's noirish style of rock and roll blues. There's even a faint undertone of Cajun as well. Was Santana trying to cover different eras or genres? I'm glad the Fabulous Thunderbirds as well as Jimmie Vaughan were included to pull off this feat with finesse.Yet, they seem out of place at times. The only fault I can see with this collection is that maybe the tracks were not engineered or placed in the proper order. Tracks like Ecuador, Tale of Kilimanjaro, and the last tracks are defintiely the sounds of Carlos Santana (trademark sound) ! They All Went to Mexico (vocals by Willie Nelson) has a Texas Tornadoes feel to it-very sharp, very nice ! However die-hard Carlos Santana fans will feel somewhat disappointed in the other styles included here. The mood of the album is very experimental and raw at times. Yet, it can be quite an entertaining departure for Santana and fans!

Replacing a lot of old vinyl's with digital and as I fumbled through I found an old friend in Havana Moon. I love the mix of blues, rock and country on this album. Certainly one of my all time favorites.
