Santana - Abraxas [LP] (180 Gram, poster, gatefold) 2020 release
Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 334/500!
Celebrate the 50th anniversary of Abraxas, Santana's second studio album, with a 2020 repress on 180 gram vinyl. Containing the group's legendary covers of Fleetwood Mac's "Black Magic Woman" and Tito Puente's "Oye Como Va", Abraxas became the band's first album to reach number one in the United States. Abraxas is ranked at number 334 on the 2020 edition of Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
At the dawn of the 1970s, this unorthodox mix of rock, jazz, salsa, and blues proved quite successful. Whether adding rock elements to salsa king Tito Puente's 'Oye Como Va,' embracing instrumental jazz-rock on 'Incident at Neshabur' and 'Samba Pa Ti,' or tackling moody blues-rock on Fleetwood Mac's 'Black Magic Woman,' the band keeps things unpredictable yet cohesive. Many of the Santana albums that came out in the '70s are worth acquiring, but for novices, Abraxas is an excellent place to start.
