Ultimate Santana

Ultimate Santana is a compilation by rock band Santana, combining hits from recent albums Supernatural, Shaman and All That I Am with early classics. Amongst the 18 tracks there are three new recordings. This album was made possible when Sony Music Entertainment (parent of Columbia Records) merged with BMG (parent of Arista) to form Sony BMG (Sony later bought BMG's share, subsequently reforming SME).

On November 3, 2007 the album debuted at number eight on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, selling about 56,000 copies in its first week.[1]
