Beyond Appearances is the fourteenth studio album by Santana, released in 1985 (see 1985 in music). The album took seven months to make, and (apart from Carlos Santana himself) involved a completely different line-up from Santana's previous album (released two and a half years earlier).

Freedom is the fifteenth studio album by Santana. By this recording, Santana had nine members, some of which had returned after being with the band in previous versions. Freedom moved away from the more poppy sound of the previous album, Beyond Appearances and back to the band's original Latin rock. It failed, however, to revive Santana's commercial fortunes, reaching only ninety-five on the album chart. Veracruz" (Jeffrey Cohen, Buddy Miles, Gregg Rolie, Carlos Santana) – 4:23.

Santana enlists the touch of contemporary producer Val Garay for the band's enduring offering of red-hot guitar and a universalist message. Highlights of the lineup include the debut of longtime keyboardist Chester 'CT' Thompson and bass sage Alphonso Johnson of Weather Report fame.
