Abraxas is the second studio album by Latin Rock band Santana, released in September 1970 on Columbia Records.

Abraxas showed a musical maturation and consolidated on the interest generated by their first album, Santana (1969), and their highly acclaimed live performance at Woodstock in August 1969

The band’s blues-rock-salsa-soul-fusion is surprisingly heavy, but the band also excels on the mellower moments of Incident At Neshabur, which hints towards their future fusion oriented direction, as well as on Samba Pa Ti, where Carlos’ soulful guitar playing complements a slow, seductive rhythm.

Abraxas contains more discernible individual songs than the debut, with high points including their definitive takes on Fleetwood Mac’s Black Magic Woman and Tito Puente’s Oye Como Va, two soulful songs that remain radio favorites.

Samba Pa Ti along with Black Magic Woman helped underpin the truly unique blend of Latin American / Blues / Rock style created by the band.

Abraxas was deemed "culturally, historically, or artistically significant" by the US Library Of Congress and was selected for preservation in their National Recording Registry in 2016.

This LP is a "Legacy Vinyl" limited release in a Gatefold sleeve on 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl through Columbia Records and pressed in 2016 in Europe.
