Borboletta is the sixth studio album by Santana. It is one of his jazz-funk-fusion oriented albums, along with Caravanserai (1972), Welcome (1973), Love Devotion Surrender (1973) with John McLaughlin and Illuminations (1974) with Alice Coltrane, Jack DeJohnette and Jules Broussard. The guitarist leaves a lot of room to percussion, saxophone and keyboards to set moods ("Spring Manifestations"), as well as lengthy solos by himself ("Promise of a Fisherman") and vocals ("Give and Take", a funky guitar-led song). The record was released in a shiny blue sleeve displaying a butterfly, an allusion to the album Butterfly Dreams (1973) by Brazilian musician Flora Purim and her husband Airto Moreira, whose contributions deeply influenced the sound of Borboletta. In Portuguese, borboleta means "butterfly".

Recorded live at the Hammersmith Odeon, London in Dec 1973, and live at the Uris Theater, New York NY in May 1974. Released in Nov 1974. The original album was a single disc with one side per show. CBS refused to release a double album, or even consider a "bonus" mini-LP (10-inch), so these magnificent performances were edited down to fit on a single LP. They also refused to allow any Hoople tracks to be included, which certainly affected the track selection of the Uris side, which were also presented out of real-time sequence for programming considerations. At over 50 minutes, it was still quite a long LP for 1974. The 30th Anniversary Edition 2 CD set (2004) reissue has a full disc dedicatd to each show.

Jethro Tull - War Child (1974) {Japan Mini LP Edition 2003, TOCP-67182}

Two years on from the conceptual innovations of THICK AS A BRICK, Tull had learned how to crystallize the creativity of that prog-rock masterpiece and incorporate it into more traditional song structures. Thus, the songs here are full of daunting time signatures and dazzling feats of instrumental derring-do, but all in the context of shorter, more concise composition. There's also a darker edge to things here, as introduced by the tumultuous title cut.

From 1968 to 1971 Godfrey became the resident musical director with Barclay James Harvest, making musical contributions to early recordings which established their full, orchestral style of rock music. The relationship fell apart and accounts differ as to why. For a short time after this, Godfrey played in the band Siddartha. In 1974 the Charisma Records label released his first solo work, Fall of Hyperion. Although not a commercial success at the time, this work has since become collectible. Godfrey then went on to form "The Enid".

Produced by Pink Floyd's own David Gilmour, Blue Pine Trees was the second release from British folk/country rock act Unicorn (though self-titled here in the US upon its release on Capitol Records) back in 1974. Blue Pine Trees is country rock, more mellow then rock actually. It begins with the upfront mandolin, vocal harmonies and fine bass playing from Pat Martin on "Electric Night."
