Don't know why anyone should be surprised that Norah Jones is loosening her shirt more and more these days. After all, growing up, the ingénue liked Mötley Crüe! "My neighbor and I would go listen to Mötley Crüe all the time," she says of the boys at right. And in her concerts, she's been known to do a gritty cover of "Ride On" by the boys Down Under, AC/DC.
I've said it once in these pages, and I'll say it again: SANTANA's self-titled third album, a.k.a. Santana III (gatefold below), is the best thing they've ever done. Columbia/Legacy has reissued the 1971 album once, and now they've done it again, making it a two-disc Legacy Edition.
This DVD-Audio has been a long time coming. Many a planned release date came and went before this one finally hit the shelves back in November, but I assure you that it was worth the wait. The high-resolution, multichannel audio soundtrack allows an already great album to realize its full potential.
