All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
Recorded in Japan in July 1973, this massive live album, originally on three LPs and now on two compact discs, was available outside the United States in 1974 but held back from domestic release until long into the CD age. It features the same "New Santana Band" that recorded Welcome, and combines that group's jazz and spiritual influences with performances of earlier Latin rock favorites like "Oye Como Va."

    A Landmark Fusion Record

    I always have had doubts about Carlos Santana's ranking among the greats of electric guitar. This CD showed me that, at the time it was recorded, he and his band were almost the equal of the Duane-Dickey Allman Brothers when it came to jamming. His playing is far more varied than you would suspect after hearing his hits. Only a few vocals interrupt the instrumental firestorm of organ, guitar, and percussion. The only low point is a drum solo during Kyoto, a curio of the 70s era. I am afraid I will be disappointed by other live Santana efforts after listening to this set. There is nowhere to go but down.

    An excellent live recording!

    I loved this album to pieces. My dad had it on record and I played it a lot. Somebody was nice enough to order a deluxe 2 CD box set from Japan of it, and it became my heart's delight. I've enjoyed it and played it so many times, that I need to get disc 2 repaired. I love the album. Listening to a live recording makes you feel as if you were there.
