A thoroughly enjoyable new offering from Carlos and an excellent Santana band, recorded in July 2011 at the Montreux Film Festival. Both the visual and audio content of the disc is stunning throughout the two hours and forty minutes length of the concert. For me there is nothing quite like hearing and seeing the energetic Santana percussion section, Raul Rekow and Karl Perazzo, playing "flat out" alongside the incredible guitar playing of their leader.

The highlight for me this time around is the inclusion in the set of the opening track of Abraxas "Singing Winds, Crying Beasts" - I believe recorded on video for the first time. It is a favourite of mine, and did not disappoint.

This choices for the "Greatest Hits" concert was well balanced in terms of including songs from different phases of Carlos' long career, although shows a bias towards those wonderful early albums. Although the songs are familiar to most fans, they are often played in new and interesting ways, which gives the whole DVD a freshness that adds to the listening pleasure. There are some new to me melodies to be heard here and there, and I particularly liked "Spark of the Divine" which began the concert.

Santana has always been a band which defies categorisation, and there are examples here of music ranging from heavy rock to lilting guitar melodies. All of the musicians play a significant part in making it such an enjoyable experience, and a special mention here for David K Matthews who has the unenviable task of following in the keyboard playing footsteps of the great Chester "CT" Thompson. The brass duo, Bill Ortiz and Jeff Cressman, have been an established part of Santana for some time, and play an important part in adding that "extra little something" to many of the songs.

I really enjoyed this concert,one of the best available on DVD ,BUT please Carlos what on earth is SOCC? the second number on disc one,it sound like a bunch of drunken madmen
I always think of Santana as melodious but this number is a thundering racket, its horrible

A very good selection of older numbers nicely played is on offer here.
My favorite Samba Pa Ti played beautifully,never tire of this,likewise Black magic women, Jingo,Oye Como Va,
Evil ways etc.
Benny and Cindy solo was toooooo loooong.....and became boring.
Derek Trucks playing is extraordinary in short measure I wouldnt want it for too long though. Whats happened to Chester Thompson? I miss him, but David Mathews takes his place,does a fine job, Hammond sounds great,please Dave its looks like you're catching flies,you might get something you dont want!a Wasp, Bee, Mozzie,and that would put paid to the playing for the evening.....

The interviews were nice I always like to hear what Carlos has to say on the state of the world.
The behind the scenes was very short and showed us nothing really,disappointing.
Nice to see Cindy speaking too,I wish them all the best, Carlos looks very happy.

Overall a good buy for nearly 3 hours of 1st class music.

This is pretty good Santana stuff - especially compared to his Blues at Montreux blu-ray. Loses a star for me due to the rap intrusions and the weak drum solo from Mrs Santana. Otherwise, it's Santana at his grooving best, with some wild and wonderful versions of classic tracks. Against the negative reviewers I don't think the brass is a problem (and I've been a Santana fan since mid-70s) and it is definitely NOT lounge music, unless your lounge is rocking! On a good 5.1 system turned up loud this does it for me, anyway!

Another superb live performance from Santana which is beautifully captured on this DVD with a great range of songs from their extensive repertoire. A must for all Santana fans, old and new, with something to please just about everybody. Short of seeing them live this is as good as it gets. Fantastic!

Watched this concert, presumably extracts from the DVD, on a Singapore Airlines flight - it's in their February 2012 selection on Krisworld. Absolutely sensational bunch of musicians, I counted 11 in total including two drummers and a further percussionist, great brass section, two good vocalists and superb renditions of the Santana classics.
