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 ...

As a Santana fan, if I had to chose one album to give someone for them to get a flavour of the band and the man himself, this would be it! From the potted history of the group through the tracks selected this is a wonderful album. For chillin' and hangin' this takes some beating. Or for something different, put this on, grab your partner and start dancing to the Latin vibes that rip from your stereo! The final word? ENJOY!

This compilation has all the best santana songs.Im not too keen on the recent stuff he has done.If you want to hear the real santana and his beautiful and thought provoking music then buy this cd!It is the perfect chill out album while at the same time an energetic fusion of latin and blues.

This is pure Carlos Santana. One of the best music compilations of Santana and his group.
Unfortunately Sony has "forgotten" to include the tracks #9 on Minidisc 1 ( which is "No One To Depend On" ) and track #16 on MD 2 ( "How Long" ). Both titles figure on the printed track list.
Finally we^re getting 37 tracks insgtead of 39 !

This is a very good collection and great to listen to both indoors and loud whilst driving. There are a few disappointing tracks in the later CDs but to be fair I much prefer Santana's earlier music anyway.

I bought it as a gift, and it is much appreciated by the recipient. I thought the product was great value for money (considering it's a two-disc album). Overall, perfect purchase.

I hasn't listened to much Santana but bought the CD based on the few songs I had heard. I was disappointed as I didn't really like the rest of the album. Think there was about 3 / 4 songs I liked off the album. Someone who is more of a Santana fan would probably love it but I bought it with a view to liking Santana more but realise it's not totally my kind of music.
