Cover vs. Original

Black Magic Woman


So honestly have you known that? Yes, Black Magic Woman by Santana is only a cover version. The original song was written two years before by Fleetwood Mac.
However, Black Magic Woman became really famous in the version by Santana. And it is one of the hits from the wonderful and perhaps best Santana album Abraxas. But you should also listen to the original by Fleetwood Mac, it is a great song, too.

El cover es muy bueno, Santana es grandioso y le pone su estilo muy personal. Pero realmente Fleetwood Mac ¡Increíble!

Fleetwood with Bob Welch was one of the best bands on the planet. This isn't a run-away vote for their version, but I like it better. Less "produced".
