Almost there but no cigar!,
This review is from: Santana (2CD Woodstock Experience Edition) (Audio CD)
I see that one reviewer has given the album one star because he personally already had these particular tracks in another format. On that basis all compilation albums would be given one star. This is the first time that all the tracks from their performance at Woodstock has appeared on CD so they should be given credit for that.
If you do wish to withhold stars, it should be on the basis that for some insane reason, several of the tracks have been edited and are shorter than the recordings on Santana Legacy. Why they went to all the trouble of bringing out a definitive version of their Woodstock performance and then chopped little bits off the running time is beyond me. I have given it four stars as it is a valiant effort but let down by sloppy execution. Still worth a four though, particularly is it now available for under £7.00. A snip.
