Santa Ana

SANTA ANA - V1a 4:50 UNE / PS / EY / US5 / SA914

Note: Also known as "Hey Santa Ana", "My Contessa", and "The Guns of Kid Cole". Written in late 1972 or early 1973, performed live by Bruce at a few shows during April-June 1973. Both V1a and V1b are the same basic recording. V1a was recorded on either June 22 or 26, 1973. However V1b is an embellished mix and was completed on June 28 or July 1. V1b includes piano (courtesy David Sancious), a layer of acoustic guitar (Bruce), calypso percussion (Richard Blackwell) and the addition of Suki Lahav’s voice in the group vocal mix. However the flute playing heard in V1a (courtesy of Clarence) has been entirely removed from the V1b mix. V1b had never circulated prior to its emergence on Tracks and it’s stunning.
