This two-CD career summation of Santana's four decades of music, the first release to encompass the guitarist's late-'60s band, '70s fusion, and '90s makeover. Furthermore, it's bostered by three new recordings, each featuring a marquee vocalist: Nickelback's Chad Kroeger on “Into the Night,” Jennifer Lopez and rapper Baby Bash on “This Boy’s Fire,” and Tina Turner on “The Game of Love.”

Good stuff, you can't go wrong with Carlos. I'd suggest Moonflower and Abraxas to the newly converted Santana fan, but if you want to start here, with the more recent duets, you can't get hurt. Hey, you can never have enough versions of Europa. Anyone who loves this song should also catch up with Gato Barbieri's sax version. 'Smooth' sounds great, and having two recordings of 'The Game of Love' is a plus as well.

I Love this CD! It has some of his new songs like "Smooth"; a track with Tina Tuner ( a blissful surprise; each of their chosen instruments blend so incredibly). There were many of his songs from the album "Abraxas", but it's Carlos Santana! I have loved his work for many years, and I still believe that Carlos Santana does not get the respect he deserves.

I have been listening to Santana since I was five because my dad listened to him. I must say this CD is awesome!! Put all of the best with new material to show a bright future maybe for another CD. Totally putting this on my birthday list!!
