Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 294/500!
TAS Audiophile Demo Disc!
Released in 1970, Abraxas, Santana’s second album, sees the band expanding
its already wildly diverse Latin rock sound by adding deeper elements of blues
and jazz to the sizzling mix. Abraxas is home to two more of the group’s
signature monster hits: the hypnotic, rhythmically hectic interpretations of
Tito Puente’s “Oye Como Va” and Fleetwood Mac’s “Black Magic Woman.”
Sundazed’s exact vinyl replica of this calienté classic is sourced directly from
the original Columbia masters.
"Black Magic Woman," the Top Five hit from Abraxas, is definitive Santana: Afro-Latin grooves and piercing lyrical psychedelic blues guitar. It was a cover of a Fleetwood Mac song written by one of Carlos Santana's guitar heroes, Peter Green. The album's other hit was also a cover: Tito Puente's "Oye Como Va." - www.rollingstone.com
