Santana's first three studio albums remain their best, and THIS is the best way to get them. All three albums were reissued and remastered from the original master tapes in 1998. Those reissues also came with live bonus tracks, a huge plus with this band.

What "Santana: The Collection" does is include all three of those CD's in a red slipcase (what you see on this Amazon page - it's the only picture they give you of the product). These are the same exact CD's you would've gotten if you bought them separate - same discs, same jewel cases, same tray cards, same booklets - except now you have a slipcase to go with them. Quick and economical, this item's often on sale. I basically got each album for $6 apiece.

What you should avoid is the longbox version. There's another "Santana: The Collection" listed on Amazon. The longbox looks similar to the red slipcase here, except it's a longbox (it'll be obvious when you see Amazon's picture for it). One major problem: no jewel cases or the original packaging, it's just three discs with respective cards. If you keep all your CD's in a binder with sleeves, you may not care, but if you have a shelf full of CD's in jewel cases, you may want consistency.

The Santana fan will easily find a plethora of albums available to choose from. This set, however, is essential for for the Santana fan's music library.

This set contains the digitally remastered first three Santana albums, including what many believe, including myself, Santana's best early album, ABRAXAS.

The accompanying literature also gives a brief insite into the history of the group, explaining their debut at the Fillmore West in 1968, their successful merging of rock & roll, R & B, jazz and latino rhythms, and how the band shaped up and impact each member had on its early sounds.

The group that made ground breaking music that had no name produced two platinum albums and three hit singles in its first three years and you can have it all in one complete set.

With this great offer you get Santana's mould-breaking first three albums exactly as you might buy them separately, packaged in rigid plastic `jewel cases' with their original artwork, in an outer red cardboard slip-case.

The three albums are as follows:

* The debut `Santana' with its lion-face image

* `Abraxas'

* The `Third Album' (also known as `cosmic man with outstretched arm')

These three albums are the 1998 re-masters with extra material as bonus tracks - well worth having, as all the extras are good.

This was the `Woodstock-era' band between 1968-71 with Gregg Rolie on keyboards doing most of the lead vocals, David Brown on bass and Mike Carabello on extra percussion to fill out the band's distinctive, rhythmically complex sound - all of whom departed just before or after the recording sessions for `Caravanserai' in 1972.

If you don't have any of Santana's first three albums - still considered by many to be their best work - this is a great way to acquire them. Even if you have pre-1998 CDs or the original vinyl, then consider buying this set just to get the excellent 1998 re-masters with the bonus tracks at a bargain price.
