Santana – Live At Montreux 2011 (Blu-Ray)


Live At Montreux 2011 (Blu-Ray)

2012, Eagle Vision

Rating: 4/5

Eagle Rock has done it again with another hi-quality ‘Montreux’ release. As with the vas majority of these releases the picture and sound is simply amazing and the highest possible for the times they were filmed. This Santana release is no exception. Actually this is probably the most pristine of the lot thus far.

The audio and video are crystal clear. A very hi-quality concert release. As you would expect Carlos plays flawlessly and delivers an exceptional performance. He is a true master of his craft. All his hits are on here from “Oye Como Va” to “Black Magic Woman” to the more recent “Smooth”. There is even a cover of AC/DC’s “Back In Black” early in the show. Interesting!  There is a heavy Latin influence on many songs which make for a bit of a different concert viewing experience.

An excellent release for Santana fans.
