Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 334/500!

It would have been remiss of us to ignore an act who ignited the beginning of the 1970’s the way that Santana did. After all, Santana were the first group who successfully managed to fuse rock, blues and latin music into an artistic and commercial success. So welcome to the groundbreaking Abraxus where the fusion is particularly potent! From the brilliant re-interpretation of Peter Green’s Black Magic Woman to the hypnotic rhythm of Oye Como Va, Abraxus takes you on musical odyssey with a latin foundation and groove. Abraxus scored on both coast with a No.1 in the US and a respectable No.6 even in the conservative UK. A unique album which sounds every bit as good today as it did then. Oh yeah wild psychedelic cover too!

"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." -

Selections: Singing Winds, Crying Beasts, Black Magic Woman / Gypsy Queen, Oye Como Va, Incident at Neshabur, Se A Cabo, Mother’s Daughter, Samba Pa Ti, Hope You’re Feeling Better, El Nicoya.
