Legendary engineer Tomoo Suzuki, who was responsible for recording and mixing of the original work, is responsible for mixing the seven unreleased tracks, using the original master tapes stored in Japan. 7-inch size mini LP (22 panel) faithfully replicates it's original LP designed by Tadanori Yokoo, including original color photo(s), liner notes, and the original obi.

Also includes reproductions of a Japan tour pamphlet and an Osaka concert ticket. Lotus is a 1974 live album by Santana, recorded at the Osaka Koseinenkin Hall, Osaka, Japan in 1973. This is the ultimate version of Santana's classic album Lotus.

I had the original SQ LPs from Japan, and always wished this would be available in surround in the modern era. This exceeds every expectation that I had. This is truly a collector's package, and the music and sound are amazing. The ensemble was really up that night; this is truly one of the great music concerts for the ages. Grab this one while you can.

This is the best sounding version of this album I have ever heard, it even tops the vinyl. The mastering is top notch and the extra disc of bonus tracks makes it even better. I have the domestic SACD as well and this one kills it. This will be getting lots of playing time!
