The Best of Santana, Vol. 2

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
While the first retrospective from the copious catalog of the enduring guitarist is heftier in terms of hits, this 14-song collection is fairly tantalizing in its own right, thanks to the way it captures Santana's perpetual spiritual and sonic motion. The best known tracks on this set are live versions of songs that appeared in studio form on Volume One -- notably an incendiary one-two punch of "Black Magic Woman" and "Gypsy Queen." That energy level tends to eclipse the studio material, however, which puts a bit too much emphasis on the guitarist's largely forgotten mellow-jazz phase - "Stormy" and "One Chain Don't Make No Prison" are smooth without being, well, ...

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
While the first retrospective from the copious catalog of the enduring guitarist is heftier in terms of hits, this 14-song collection is fairly tantalizing in its own right, thanks to the way it captures Santana's perpetual spiritual and sonic motion. The best known tracks on this set are live versions of songs that appeared in studio form on Volume One -- notably an incendiary one-two punch of "Black Magic Woman" and "Gypsy Queen." That energy level tends to eclipse the studio material, however, which puts a bit too much emphasis on the guitarist's largely forgotten mellow-jazz phase - "Stormy" and "One Chain Don't Make No Prison" are smooth without being, well, "Smooth." Those missteps are easy enough to overlook when surrounded by clever, introspective pieces like "Incident at Neshabur" and "Toussaint L'Overture." Fans who've been drawn into the cult of Carlos by his mega-selling Supernatural album might find this collection a bit too esoteric -- but guitar aficionados and those who saw the superior Volume One as a mere appetizer will want to dig in with gusto.
All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
These 14 tracks lean heavily on the earliest phase of Santana. Nine of them, in fact, were recorded prior to 1972, and just one postdates 1978. As 1969-71 was Santana's most vital period, however, that's no cause for complaint, and indeed the later cuts really pale in comparison. For someone who wants a little more than a greatest hits collection but wants to stop after two volumes, this is good enough, with first-rate items like "Persuasion," "Se Acabo," and "Guajira." Nothing here is rare, and note that the versions of "Black Magic Woman" and "Europa" are live ones.
