AllMusic Review by

Purple Pyramid's double-disc collection San Mateo Sessions collects all of the demos Santana cut prior to Columbia (or at least the great majority of the known tapes). Though this isn't as professional or as dynamic as Santana's debut album, it is still fascinating to hear these tapes, and it's noteworthy just on that level.
