total DVD length.....82 minutes
after the Santana Tokyo 1973 transfered from VHS tape was uploaded to dimeadozen in march 2010 a member contacted me they had a shorter but better quality disc they bought on ebay and mailed me a copy and I saw that it has better picture quality, no picture drop outs and does not have the DEPAS onscreen logo, not A+ mint but much better than the old uploaded version
I rate this new version as an A ......... this is an UPGRADE to the previous upload
Santana at the Budokan in Tokyo Japan from the concert there on July 7, 1973 they played there the 6th & 7th (the 7th is most likely date they were filmed for TV) this is from a broadcast in 1993 shown in 2 parts
The end credits of Part one and the 1st minute of "Mantra" and the last song Toussaint L’Overture were taken from the previous version using tmpg-mpg editor and patched in without any re-encoding the new menu is slightly different. the disc 200 meg larger than the previous upload this is due to a slightly higher bitrate of the better quality disc
05 - Castillos de Arena ....... the screen wrongly says " Swallow "
07 - Incident At Neshabur also includes parts of "My Favourite Things" & " Fool on the Hill "
11 - Free Angela .............. the screen wrongly says " Sanba De Sausa Rito "
07 - Incident At Neshabur ......in Tokyo near the end they play a few minutes of the end part of
" Let us Go into The House of the Lord " very much like the way it was recorded with John McLaughlin
but in Osaka it is very different and hard to even tell that they are even attempting that song
and it explains why you can see Tom Coster give Carlos a big grin when this time they nail it
(the part they play is on the Love Devotion Surrender CD from 13'10" to the end).
I've never heard a Santana show where he follows the recorded version so closely and although it's only the end part it was great to see on this video Carlos Santana, Armando Peraza, Doug Rauch who in 6 weeks time joined Mahavishnu John McLaughlin, Billy Cobham, and Larry Young on the tour to promote the recently released "Love Devotion Surrender LP"
