Moonflower is a part studio and part live album by Santana.
The live tracks were recorded at concerts in Europe in 1976 while the band were promoting the Festival studio album.
Irritatingly the studio and live tracks were intermingled on the double album rather than having one live album and a studio album.

What Do You Think?
Do you think it is the best live album by Santana?
I haven’t included in any of the genre polls, partly because there are so many songs recorded in the studio. Do you think it should be listed somewhere?
