Black Magic Woman" is a song written by British musician Peter Green, which first appeared as a Fleetwood Mac single in various countries in 1968, subsequently appearing on the 1969 Fleetwood Mac compilation albums English Rose (US) and The Pious Bird of Good Omen (UK), as well as Vintage Years. In 1970, it became a hit by Santana, as sung by Gregg Rolie, reaching No. 4 in the US and Canadian charts, after appearing on their Abraxas album.

Black Magic Woman is a compilation album by British blues rock band Fleetwood Mac, released in 1971. It is a double album, composed of songs from two Peter Green-era albums, Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac and English Rose, as well as several non-album tracks. My Heart Beat Like a Hammer" (Spencer). Merry-Go-Round" (Green). Long Grey Mare" (Green). Hellhound on My Trail" (Johnson). Shake Your Moneymaker" (James). Looking for Somebody" (Green). No Place to Go" (Howlin' Wolf).

The sun is shining, Although it's raining in my heart. I'm in love with my baby And I hate to see us part. My baby left me this morning I didn't even say goodbye My baby left me this morning No, she didn't even say goodbye. You know I love you baby And I don't know the reason why. I had a dream, I had a dream one rainy night. You know I'm looking for my baby And you know the sun was shining bright.

Black Magic Woman', while of course not as inflammatory as the Santana version without the great Latino solos, still shows that Peter had gone a long way since the band's earliest blues period. The production is deep and all-encompassing, the tonality is what I'd call 'subtly minor', and Mick chooses a very tricky time signature, although I don't really know if the fast part of the song really suits the general atmosphere. For instance, I hate the band's reworking of Elmore James' 'The Sun Is Shining', since the vocals are shitty - Spencer playing his dirty tricks on the listener again? I'm so used to the pretty Clapton version of the song that I can't imagine it as a stupid parody version. And, while all the generic blues ditties are slightyl better in quality then the generic blues ditties on Mr Wonderful, they're still nothing but generic blues ditties.

Harmonica – Walter 'Shakey' Horton.

Jennifur Sun from RamonaStratis, I've been know to feel that way about a cool looking car and I don't consider myself materialistic Was track two of side one on the group's 2nd studio album, "Abraxas", and on October 8th, 1971 the album reached (for 1 week) on Billboard's Top 200 Albums . .Wayne from Salem, VaThis was an original Fleetwood Mac song written by Peter Green. It was on their "English Rose" album. Which is now titled "The Pious Bird Of Good Omen". It was just a basic track for them. A short and sweet rock song. Santana took it and expanded on Peter Green's hauntingly beautiful guitar chords.
