"I love Santana. I also love the song "White Bird" from It's A Beautiful Day. So when I saw this, I scooped it up. It even says it is in DTS so I was very anxious to watch and listen. Was I in for a let down. The audio is the worst I have ever heard on A DVD. A 78RPM record sounds better. The film footage was most likely shot by drug-induced hippies. Shaky, out of focus, bad lighting, you name it. Unless you are a die-hard fan of the early 70's and want this for historical purposes only, do yourself a favor and pass this one by."
Is that Santana in the shadows????

"The DVD's title "Santana" and front cover photo of Carlos are rather deceiving since it only features two performances ("Medley" & "Soul Sacrifice") by the Santana band. The balance of the video features performances by Taj Mahal, Johnny & Edgar Winter, and It's a Beautiful Day. Recorded "Live" in 1971 at the Royal Albert Hall in London, the video quality is very, very poor. Want a better idea of the video quality? Take a look of the band photo from the Abraxas album which is dark and grainy. There is nothing worth viewing in this bootleg DVD that isn't already worth watching in higher quality DVD titles such as "Woodstock", "Supernatural", "Sacred Fire-Live in South America", or the VHS video "Viva Santana"."
