2 stars The original Santana Greatest Hits compliation. This contains 10 songs from albums up to 1974. Most people who would get this probably already own his first few outstanding records, so this is really not an essential package. highlights are "Evil Ways", "Jingo", "Black Magic Woman", and, of course, "Oye Como Va", one of the great latin-rhythm rock tunes eve recorded by any artist. Nothing here is bad, but nothing essential that can not be found elsewhere, sometimes even in longer versions. Not really any jazzy/progressive music from Santana on this release, that would come later on some of his other albums. Overall, this rates only a 2 because of it's lack of anything original or critical that can't be gotten elsewhere (gotten?).
