Marathon is the tenth studio album by Santana. This marked the beginning of the group's commercial slide, in spite of having the Top 40 hit "You Know That I Love You". Alex Ligertwood, who would sing with the group throughout the 1980s, joined the group for this album. DSD remastering

"All That I Am" is the nineteenth studio album by Santana and follow-up to the band's 2002 Shaman. It was released on October 31, 2005 internationally and a day later in the United States. All That I Am follows the format of his previous two studio releases, consisting primarily of collaborations with other artists. The album debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200, with 142,309 sales.
One of the defining and most critically acclaimed albums of the '90s, Supernatural was the record which brought Santana to the spotlight of a new generation of fans. Joined by Rob Thomas, Dave Matthews, Everlast, Lauryn Hill, Eric Clapton, Wyclef Jean and others, Supernatural set the standard for contemporary pop and rock records moving into the new millennium.
"Santana Brothers" (sometimes credited as simply Brothers) is a 1994 album by Carlos Santana, his brother Jorge, and his nephew Carlos Hernandez. It reached 191 on the Billboard 200 album chart. Carlos joins brother Jorge (ex-Malo) and young nephew Carlos Hernandez in a six-string summit that puts the three guitarists in all-instrumental solo, duo and trio settings. This album is full of delicate ambiances, a subtle marriage of styles and influences.
"Milagro" is the sixteenth studio album by Santana, released in 1992. "Milagro", which means "miracle" in Spanish, was dedicated to the lives of Miles Davis and Bill Graham, and was Santana's first album on the Polydor label after twenty-two years with Columbia Records. The album reached 102 in the Billboard 200.
Following a 20th anniversary reunion tour in 1989 to promote Viva Santana!, Carlos Santana reorganized the band as a sextet and recorded Spirits Dancing in the Flesh, Santana's 15th and final studio album for Columbia Records. It was an unusually eclectic collection, featuring songs by Curtis Mayfield ("Gypsy Woman"), the Isley Brothers ("Who's That Lady"), and Babatunde Olatunji ("Jin-Go-Lo-Ba"). For all those influences, it was more of a straightforward, guitar-heavy rock album than usual. Coming more than three years after Santana's last new album, Freedom, it sold to the band's core audience only, reaching number 85.
"Freedom" is the fourteenth 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.
