Ultimate Santana is a greatest hits collection from the band Santana, released in 2007. Amongst the 18 tracks, there are three new recordings, including the bonus track „The Game of Love“ performed by Tina Turner. The track was originally recorded with Tina, but when she declined to participate in making a music video, Michelle Branch was invited to record a new version, which was released as a single in 2002.
Carlos Santana about Tina: "There's only one Tina Turner...No one can hit a note like Tina Turner" - "I love Michelle and she did a great interpretation of it. It's just that with all honor and respect to Michelle, there's the girl and there's the woman, and Michelle is unfolding into a woman...but it takes time to go from a girl into a woman."
