Heard It Before?

Black Magic Woman, a classic hit from 1970 for rock maestro, Santana, was actually written two years previously by Peter Green and recorded by his band, Fleetwood Mac. The Mac’s single release reached number 37 in the UK singles chart in 1968 but it was Santana’s infectious medley of the song with Gypsy Queen with that eventually propelled it to number four on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and worldwide popularity in 1971.
