HAWKWIND - This is your Captain speaking

The man's in a good mood. He has a good time, owns a farm in the English county of Devon. His wife Kris, his dogs and other "amenities" around him. No wonder that he seems deeply relaxed, laughs just as often as he speaks, does not always hit the core of the questions with his answers. After all, he'll soon be seventy-five. He knows the past very well, and the future does not seem to affect him.

eclipsed: You've just completed a tour of England. How are you now?

Dave Brock: Thanks for asking. Kris, my dogs and I are sitting here in the garden of our farm. The weather is fine, jazz music plays in the background. We drink wine and smoke marijuana. The dogs, of course not. So I'm fine.

eclipsed: On the tour you put the new album in the spotlight. How'd it go?

SANTANA - Blues Magic (4:25)
Album: Santana IV (2016)
Label/Distributor: Santana IV/Thirty Tigers/Alive

A fascinating album that not only takes up the spirit of the early Santana in its title. If you listen to the new songs of the guitar magician, you immediately get the often quoted 'Woodstock-Feeling', also with the atmospheric "Blues Magic". Produced in a pleasantly old-fashioned way and yet never old-fashioned at any time. Album of the month!
