Author Notes

Back to Santana.  My last two offerings were Put Your Lights On and While My Guitar Gently Weeps, both from the modern Santana, when the group moved from jazz and Latin to more popular, chart-friendly songs.  This shift really dates back to 1978, and the Inner Secrets album.  I am going to pull charts from that album for the next few weeks.
 
Many of the songs on Inner Secrets were covers of famous pieces, but Open Invitation was a Santana original, written by several members of the group.  The tune is also much more pop-friendly than previous Santana hits.  Well, pop until near the end when Carlos unleashes a killer solo.
