For a 2-disc collection that is.
Two and half hours of music, 39 tracks in chronological order spanning 18 years from 1969-1987, is about as good a Santana collection as you can indeed squeeze on two CDs. It hits all the high points though inevitably some favourites will be omitted because Santana has just such a huge back catalogue. As an introduction to Santana's alternative Latino rhythm-based guitar rock I can't see it being bettered.
This is seriously good stuff.
I should note that an alternative collection is The Essential Santana which is cheaper, has a slightly different track list, and is seven tracks fewer. This collection is better but you pays your money ...
