All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
Two-CD package drawn from performances at the Fillmore West in December 1968, with an early lineup including Bob Livingston on drums and Marcus Malone on congas both of whom would be gone by the time the group recorded their official debut in 1969. The band sound only a bit more tentative here than they would in their Woodstock-era incarnation, running through several of the highlights of their first album "Jingo," "Persuasion," "Soul Sacrifice," and "Treat".

More interesting to collectors will be the five songs that have not previously appeared on any Santana recording, including covers of songs by jazzmen Chico Hamilton and Willie Bobo and a half-hour original jam that concludes the set, "Freeway." The sound is excellent and the arrangements a bit more improv-oriented than what ended up on the early studio records. Its appeal isn't solely limited to committed fans; on its own terms it's a fine release, highlighted by some burning organ-guitar interplay in particular. Live at the Fillmore 1968

    Marred by an Aimless Jam

    I was surprised at how well this pre-studio live set held up. The organ-guitar interplay sounded great and there were a couple nice blues songs to vary the Latin groove.Alas, the final 30 minute jam called Freeway contains a percussion interval that lasts forever. The track should have been titled Gridlock. Had the compilers left it off and made this a one disc offering, I would have rated it at least 4 stars.
