(From wiki)
"Azteca was a Latin jazz-rock-fusion group formed in 1972, started by Coke Escovedo and his brother Pete Escovedo, who had just finished stints with Latin rock pioneering band Santana. Azteca was the first large-scale attempt to combine multiple musical elements in the context of a Latin orchestra setting, and featured horns, woodwinds, multiple keyboards, three vocalists, guitars, drums, and multiple Latin percussionists.
Onstage, the band consisted of between 15-25 members, and toured with acts including Stevie Wonder. Other notable Azteca alumni included drummer Lenny White, bassist Paul Jackson, vocalist Wendy Haas, trumpeter Tom Harrell, guitarist Neal Schon, vocalist Errol Knowles and percussionist Victor Pantoja. The group was also a musical starting point for Latin percussionist Sheila E. (the daughter of Pete Escovedo), who appeared with the band as a teenager. Two albums were released on Columbia Records, the self titled Azteca (1972) and Pyramid of the Moon (1973), before the band split up.
On September 15 2007, a number of the surviving members of Azteca performed together for the first time in more than 30 years in Hollywood, California. The concert was recorded for an eventual DVD release."


My personal opinion is that there was a rift in the classic Santana line-up and Coke decided to make his own LP , notice the reference to "egos" on the back cover blurb.
He then made a very good LP,this one, ,even borrowing guitarist Neal Schon for a few songs.
Although similar to Santana, it added a few more elements, like Gospel ("Empty Prophets"), making it a bit different and quirky.
This particular Quad mix has been out of print for more than 35 years , so here's to all of those listeners who wondered what it would sound like and for those who may have heard an "early" Quad SQ decoding/Q8 versions, none of which compare to this Hi Resolution DVD Audio conversion
.
ENJOY!!!!!
