Just reminds me of listening to this album so long ago when people still bought and listened to a whole album. Such nice music that one doesn't hear anywhere else.

Good call.  Except for the bit where it goes a tad jazzy.  

Man, did this album get a lot of air time when I was growing up.

Only to the extent that the two bands came from the same San Francisco music scene in the mid-late 1960s and both liked long improvisational jams. 

The Dead don't have the same latin influences nor do they have Carlos' inimitable guitar style.  Conversely, Santana doesn't have the same blue grass influences or Jerry's inimitable guitar style.

Growing up in Nuevo Mexico, I used to ride my stingray bike to the Albuquerque Dukes stadium to see the great Santana headline a funky list of bands every year in august!  Puro party, ese!  That piano break is mui bueno        {#Motor}

The US isn't much different today, still a very prudish society where Twitter and Facebook ban the nipple (female of course because mens are somehow different) but show decapitation videos.

It's always struck me as a Scot that you've got this the wrong way round!

I think this shows that it's still a patriarchical society where female nipples have been sexualised while mens have been normalised.

I wonder was that white dove on the album cover conceived by the artist or was it added at a later date by the record company as a form of coy censorship? Pity, might have sold more albums - well at least one more {#Ask}

so what exactly happened at Neshabur?

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Nishapur

Maybe this is this incident:

Nishapur was conquered by the Muslims, without struggle, during the caliphate of Umar. The Caliph appointed Ahnaf Ibn Qais as the chief command of the Muslim army out of Isfahan. From Isfahan, two routes led toKhorasan: the main route via Rayy and the other via Nishapur. The people of Nishapur chose not to fight and surrendered on the condition of paying a tribute.

Having conquered the region around Nishapur, the Muslim force advanced to Nishapur itself. The city was divided into four sectors, with each sector under a Persian chief. These chiefs shut themselves in the city and closed the gates. The Muslims laid siege to the city for some days. In the meantime, the Persian chiefs quarreled among themselves. One of the chiefs entered into negotiations with the Muslims. He offered to open one of the gates for the Muslim army to enter, provided he was granted immunity. The Muslims accepted the offer. The Persians were taken by surprise, and the Muslims became the masters of Nishapur.

Or this: (lovely time to live there)

After the husband of Genghis Khan's daughter, Taghachar, was killed at Nishapur in 1221 by a Nishapur Muslim border guard, Genghis Khan ordered the death of all in the city—1.7 million were killed, and the skulls of men, women, and children were piled in pyramids by the Mongols.

All greats of course (the dozen+ mentioned already), what about The Edge, Mark Knopfler, Larry Carlton, Michael Hedges, Nick Drake, Phil Keaggy... there's at least 20 or 30 or players who defined modern guitar at different levels, with greater or lesser popular acclaim, and often for contributions other than just screaming fast leads.
