Tunes for Tuesday: Soul Sacrifice

Sorry, this post is a little late. It has been a busy day putting some finishing touches in place for the release of my new book, Montagnard. If you are interested, you can check it out here!

Sometimes when you have limited time, you have to make a sacrifice. So, let’s head back in time to 1969 and Woodstock, and check out Soul Sacrifice by Carlos Santana.

Soul Sacrifice (Woodstock, 1969)

Carlos Santana was one hell of a guitar player. You’ve heard of blues guitarists making a deal with the devil at a crossroads for fame and success. Sometimes I wonder it Carlos Santana made a deal with some black magic woman.

Black Magic Woman (Tanglewood, 1970)

I once wondered if I could make a deal like that, but when I looked around, she wasn’t there.

She’s Not There (1977)

This was a poor sound quality video later dubbed over with the CD)

Santana’s guitar playing spoke may languages and his music is still appreciated around the globe.

Europa (Live, 1982)

Santana is an American rock band formed in San Francisco in 1966 by Mexican-American guitarist and songwriter Carlos Santana. The group has undergone several line-up changes in its recording and performance history, with Carlos Santana being the only common denominator.

Maria, Maria (Live at Montreux, 2011)

This post does not have as much text and commentary as some of my other Tunes for Tuesday posts. Sometimes you just have to let the music speak for itself!

  1. Great post! One of my favorite musicians. His music incorporates so many influences and his talent is unparalleled. Nobody can make a guitar do what he can. His music speaks for a generation and continues today.

  2. I played Black Magic Woman to my 15 year old recently and he was in awe! I guess it’s been redone with a new sound that’s nice but nothing beats the original..
