The #1 smash that changed radio playlists forever. Includes Black Magic Woman/Gypsy Queen; Oye Como Va , and the seven other tracks from the original album. The CD-only bonus tracks are Se a Cabo; Toussaint L'Overture , and Black Magic Woman/Gyspy Queen , recorded live at Royal Albert Hall on April 18, 1970.
Santana's 1970 follow-up to their Woodstock-propelled smash '69 debut found leader Carlos Santana further expanding his San Francisco group's already broad musical boundaries. To wit: two hit singles that emanated from opposite ends of the spectrum--"Black Magic Woman," originally written and recorded by English blues-rock guitarist Peter Green and Fleetwood Mac, and New York Latin percussionist/dance music king Tito Puente's infectious "Oye Como Va." Tying blues, rock, and salsa together in one pancultural package, Abraxas also featured such standout tracks as "Gypsy Queen" and "Singing Winds, Crying Beasts." The latter underscored the growing Eastern sensibilities of guitarist Santana. --Billy Altman

|Donovan's Greatest Hits
Lowest new price: $6.18
Lowest used price: $2.72
Don's 1969 bestseller is now revamped to give you the original versions of Catch the Wind and Colours , while adding later hits like Atlantis and Barabajagal (Love Is Hot) to the original tracklisting that features such classics as Mellow Yellow; Sunshine Superman; There Is a Mountain; Season of the Witch; Jennifer Juniper , and Hurdy Gurdy Man .
Greatest Hits is the budget option for those who've concluded that two discs of Donovan is a disc too many and zero is one too few. Troubadour, Sony's 1992 Donovan box set, boasts nearly three times the tracks this 15-song single-disc retrospective offers, but Greatest Hits delivers what it promises: "Colours" and "Catch the Wind" from his folkie phase and "Mellow Yellow," "Sunshine Superman," and "Wear Your Love Like Heaven" from the lad's best-pal-a-flower-ever-had period. Also included are plenty more catchy folk-rock hits cut between 1964 and 1970 as well as four bonus tracks, including the delightfully earnest "Atlantis" and "Barabajagal," with the celebrated first-edition Jeff Beck Group providing backing. Donovan's blissed-out liner notes ("Whatever you think this song is about, it probably is") round out the package quite quaintly. --Steven Stolder

|The Very Best of Cream
Lowest new price: $5.14
Lowest used price: $2.03
Unavailable in the U.S.! Import pressing of this collection from the British trio, the most comprehensive single-disc Cream compilation on the market. Despite the fact the group was mostly esteemed as a live, Blues-based extended-jams outfit that sometimes didn't know when to quit, most of the songs here are tuneful, concise studio tracks with Beatle-esque touches in the arrangements; it's hard to imagine how anybody could dismiss gems like 'White Room', 'Strange Brew' or 'Badge' as excessive. 20 tracks. Polydor.
The groundbreaking work of this British psychedelic-blues supergroup deserves more thorough study, but this 20-song compilation provides a useful overview for newcomers. Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, and Ginger Baker--virtuosos all--expanded the parameters of rock by incorporating a jazz sensibility into their distorted blues jams. This compilation mixes their odd original hits with a number of souped-up blues covers. The live version of Robert Johnson's "Crossroads" remains one of the greatest blues workouts a rock band has ever produced. Since Cream released only four albums, this set includesv most of the highlights, and it illustrates how Cream cast the seeds of heavy metal. -- Marc Greilsamer
|The Greatest Hits
Lowest new price: $9.00
Lowest used price: $3.61
2012 collection from the Post-Grunge rockers containing two new recordings. From that first explosive burst of 'Kryptonite', which ignited their storied career at the top of the last decade, to subsequent multi-platinum albums, and non-stop touring regimen that finds them still notching shows around the world at a record pace, they also earned a hard-fought pedigree as one of most exciting and authentic radio icons. Their impressive and steady ascension up the ladder has seen them score multiple #1 hits across formats, snag several Billboard and other awards, and log scores of sold-out shows over a growing global terrain that is nearing 40 countries. Greatest Hits reflects on 3 Doors Down's incredible journey thus far, while paving the way for even more success and timeless rock to come.
