Inner Secrets is the ninth studio album by Santana. It marks the start of the phase of Santana's career where he moved away from the fusion of Latin, jazz, rock and blues that marked his previous records and began to move towards an Album Oriented Rock direction. As such, the album's quality is widely disputed among fans. "Stormy" and "One Chain (Don't Make No Prison)" were both hit singles. In The Netherlands "Well All Right" was released as a single and reached #22 in the top 40.
Most CD releases of Inner Secrets use a different version of track 3, One Chain (Don't Make No Prison), than the one that appeared on the original LP, Columbia FC 35600. The version used on most CD releases is an extended disco mix (Running time 7:10), that appeared on a 12” single (Columbia 23-10957). The original album version of track 3 is available on CD in a Japanese Mini LP sleeve, Sony Music SICP 2875, released in 2010.
