Re-mastered version is worth owning | Silicon Valley, CA | 06/08/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The engineering work of re-mastering these excellent music recordings is decent. Compared to the original releases, these sound much better in terms of audio dynamics and noise level. It is definitely worth owning the re-mastered version, even if you already have the original releases."
If you love music, you won't read this and just get it NOW!

"What do you get when mesh together blues, jazz, Latin rhythms, and psychadelic improvisation that could have only come out of San Francisco, all centered the raw energy of rock and roll? You get Santana. Now what happens when you take Santana's three greatest albums, have them digitally remastered, and add some awesome live performances to the mix you get a box set that everyone should own, and is perfect for all you low-budget shoppers.Santana- 5 stars A fiery debut! Santana meshes Latin music and psychadelic rock 'n' roll into something that was completely new and original. They quickly prove that they are an intense, powerful group that demands attention, and are never any less than amazing.Abraxsas- 5 stars Everything that their debut was, and more! This is an all time classic that belongs in everybody's collection. Tighter musicianship, improved songwriting, and Carlos Santana playing at his peak make this an all time great rock and roll album.Santana III- 5 stars The weakest album in the set, but still brilliant. Contains a harder and slightly edgier sound than their first two albums, though they are also relaxed and more mature in the studio and as songwriters and musicians. This album was the last album of the woodstock lineup of Santana, and the end of a brief but glorious streak atop the music landscape. Santana may have matched and exceeded the sales of these three albums (The overblown Supernatural), but they would never match the creative level of their first three albums. All three are essentials of the music business, and everyone should own a copy. If you don't this is the way to get them. With perfect sound, excellent bonus performances, and a low price you simply can't pass this offer up. Get it TODAY!"
Incredible Box Set!

"This box set contains the three best albums of Santana's career. They have had other great albums, but Santana, Abraxas and Santana III are there three best of all time. These three albums are essential to any rock collection. My personal favorite of the three is The third album. However, all three albums would be five stars, and when combined, they are still five stars. These three albums contain some of Santana's all time best songs, including Soul Sacrifice, Evil Ways, Jingo, Black Magic Woman, Oye Coma Va, No One To Depend On, and Everybody's Everything. These songs alone make these albums worth owning. Plus, these albums come with three different live songs on each CD, including Woodstock, where the great version of Fried Neckbones is. These CDs are essential to Santana fans, and all rock fans."
