Finally got around to listening to these - great stuff!
However, if I could pick my fav Sammy lineup (yeah, I know we were talking about Satch!), it would be HSAS - Hagar, Neal Schon, Kenny Aaronson, and Michael Shrieve. Talk about a super group - the members were part of (not including Sammy's history): Santana, Santana, Journey, Jan Hammer, Bad English, Automatic Man, Buckethead!, Dust, Pat Travers, Leslie West, Rick Derringer, on and on...
Great live cut of Whiter Shade of Pale:
Listen to Sammy's pipes on this one, and Schon shreds like a demon, My Home Town:
On the same page, punch up the majestic Valley of the Kings. This was a great band!
You know, Sammy can also shred like a maniac, if given the chance! And he still sounds great at 63!
