Some die-hard Santana get the shivers when the late 70s and the start of the 80s are mentioned.
I have to be honest.....the albums from that era are not always very good and songs like Winning,
All I ever wanted, Lighting in the sky are not the best the band has given us... :))

But the the live shows......far better than the albums.
There have been some memorable moments in those years:

Bottom Line 10-78
Osaka 10-79
Berkeley 05-80
Dortmund 06-80
Old Waldorf 02-81
Tokyo 08-81(with Takanaka)

This FM recordings has some great songs:

Tales of Kilimanjaro(superb)
Aquamarine(the only good song from Marathon??), unfortunately the only "problem" in the recording, it fades in.
Transcendance(great track from Moonflower) with great jazzy interlude.
The version of Samba Pa Ti is nice as a closer.

Also fine is the guest appearance of Al DiMeola on Shake your moneymaker.
This results in a nice jam!
