3 stars When you are entering the average recored shop, you will be flooded by Santana compilations, incredible how many has been released, often for very low prices and with a 'smell of bootleg'. The main reason to review this compilation is that the track list looks good featuring the classic compositions with the Latin-rock sound like Black Magic Woman, Evil Ways, Jingo (mindblowing percussive riff) and Oye Como Va. I am not a fan of songs like HOld On, I'll Be Waiting, Winning and Wnning but you will be very pleased with two excellent instrumentals: the known Europa and the very overlooked I love You Much Too Much, the guitarwork in that song is so moving and captures the spirit of Santana his unsurpassed emotional guitarplay, a big hand for the 'master of the sustain'!
