Recorded live in Mexico in 1993. 

"Europa (Earth's Cry Heaven's Smile)" is an instrumental from the Santana album Amigos, written by Carlos Santana and Tom Coster. One of Santana's most popular compositions, it is a staple on classic rock radio stations and oldies radio stations.

The 16 bar harmonic composition (chord progression) is that of the jazz standard "Autumn Leaves" (originally Les Feuilles Mortes") 

Upon seeing his friend was suffering a bad experience whilst high on mescaline, Santana composed a piece titled "The Mushroom Lady's Coming to Town". This precursor contained the first lick to "Europa". It was put away and not touched for some time.

When Santana was touring with Earth, Wind & Fire in Manchester, England, he played this tune again, this time with Tom Coster who helped him with some of the chords and thus Europa was born. It was renamed as "Europa (Earth's Cry Heaven's Smile)". 

Released: March 26, 1976
