''Welcome'' is the fifth studio album by Santana, released in 1973. It followed the jazz-fusion formula that the preceding ''Caravanserai'' had followed, with a different lineup this time. Gregg Rolie had left the band along with Neal Schon to form Journey, and they were replaced by Tom Coster, Leon Thomas and John McLaughlin, who had collaborated with Carlos Santana on ''Love Devotion Surrender''. ''Welcome'' also featured John Coltrane's widow, Alice, as a pianist on the album's opening track, "Going Home" and Flora Purim, the former wife of Airto Moreira on vocals. Because this album was far more experimental than his first four albums, ''Welcome'' did not feature any hit singles.

In 2003, the album was re-released with a bonus track, "Mantra", which was part of a jam session between Tom Coster, Carlos Santana, and Mike Shrieve.
