Santana - Abraxas RIAA Certified Multi-Platinum! Click here to see this CD at!

By Billy Altman

Santana's 1970 follow-up to their Woodstock-propelled smash '69 debut found leader Carlos Santana further expanding his San Francisco group's already broad musical boundaries. To wit: two hit singles that emanated from opposite ends of the spectrum--"Black Magic Woman," originally written and recorded by English blues-rock guitarist Peter Green and Fleetwood Mac, and New York Latin percussionist/dance music king Tito Puente's infectious "Oye Como Va." Tying blues, rock, and salsa together in one pancultural package, Abraxas also featured such standout tracks as "Gypsy Queen" and "Singing Winds, Crying Beasts." The latter underscored the growing Eastern sensibilities of guitarist Santana.

"Carlos Santana has taken some strange side trips in his career (remember when he called himself Devadip??) but early on, he and his band were simply astounding in their musical vision. Abraxis is a must have for anyone serious about music. The mixing of latin rhythm and rock gutar was never better than early Santana. And don't forget to check out the solo guitar work! (Be careful though, I've fried speakers on some of those high notes!) Abraxis was the first CD I bought when I got my CD player. It is that important. "
