Absolutely great cover pick. People forget how great a guitar player that Peter Green was. Everybody knows Santana is.

I read a lot of comments on youtube by deep-seated, die-hard, blues fans who know the Green version. A lot of them think that Santana went too far with his arrangement, doing Green a great injustice.

 

On the other hand, Santana plays it the way he would have written it, and I think that is why a lot of folks like me think that it's a Santana song. And of course, Santana had the hit that's still playing around the world.

Okay, here's one that y'all may not know is a cover song. I didn't either until I saw it on an AXS-TV program called Hits That Were Covers. A lot of music professionals didn't know it was a cover either. This one got the no. 1 ranking on the show.

 

Black Magic Woman - Santana (1970 cover)

 

So here's the original - Fleetwood Mac with Peter Green (Green wrote it) 1968
