3 stars Well, I happen to like this album. It is one of the few I have on CD by Santana, and has a lot that I like. Perhaps the sound quality could be a bit better, and perhaps some of the performances are not as inspired as they could be, but on the whole I think it is quite good. I tend to prefer CD 2 as it is more instrumental than CD1, but both are pretty good. For the most part, with the exception of the Caravanseri material (and Black Magic Woman) I prefer the versions here to the studio versions. The vocalist I dislike however, so a lot of the vocal material that he sings on is less than enjoyable for me (he is much worse on Moonflower though). All in all, a pretty good live album that I think is worth hearing for any Santana fan.
