Friday Jam: Buddy Guy and Carlos Santana


Here's a little something to cruise into the weekend with. It is a slow, slow burn, as all the best things in life are.

As a lifelong fan of Carlos Santana, we're talking 1969 from the very beginning, I have never, never, heard Carlos play like this. I'm talking style now. I love Buddy Guy, too, always have; one of his things is to come out and play every imaginable style possible and literally blow anybody on the stage off if they can't stand downwind of his immense power, intelligence, and subtlety. In this clip it is like Santana decided to come out and play Buddy's style and the result is, well, see for yourself. The smile on Buddy's face says it all.

Enjoy.







best,
Don

Got a black magic woman
Got a black magic woman
I've got a black magic woman
Got me so blind I can't see
that she's a black magic woman
She's trying to make a devil out of me


Don't turn your back on me baby
Don't turn your back on me baby
Yes don't turn your back on me baby
Stop messing 'round with your tricks
Don't turn your back on me baby
You just might pick up my magic sticks
Black Magic Woman

Got your spell on me baby
Got your spell on me baby
Yes you got your spell on me baby
Turning my heart into stone
I need you so bad, magic woman
Please don't leave me alone

Greg, yeah, I stumbled on this one and couldn't resist ... youtube told me I'd like it!

Ed, those early albums still float in and out of my mp3 player ... I just can't get enough.

Remember the original (pre-Stevie Nicks/Lindsey Buckingham) Fleetwood Mac (with Peter Green, who wrote it) version of Black Magic Woman?
