The song “Black Magic Woman” was made famous by Carlos Santana. It first appeared on his 1970 album Abraxas and then on various greatest hits compilations. The song hit number 4 in the US and Canada the same year.
The song was first recorded in 1968 by Fleetwood Mac. It was written by Peter Green, a founding member of the group.
When Carlos Santana decided to do the song, he created a medley arrangement that incorporated Gábor Szabó‘s 1966 instrumental “Gypsy Queen”, a mix of jazz, Hungarian folk and Latin rhythms. My mother is half Hungarian. She LOVES to tell people these details.
