4434 - SANTANA "ABRAXAS" DTS 5.1 Surround
Carlos Santana has artfully built his namesake group into quite a legacy, and the mega-hit Abraxas is a fascinating journey into the universal appeal of Santana’s legendary musical style. This amazing 5.1 surround mix adds an exciting new dimension to the classic hits “Oye Como Va” and “Black Magic Woman.”
Artist Background: Santana is the primary exponent of Latin-tinged rock, particularly due to its combination of Latin percussion (congas, timbales, etc.) with bandleader Carlos Santana's distinctive, high-pitched lead guitar playing. The group was the last major act to emerge from the psychedelic San Francisco music scene of the 1960s and it enjoyed massive success at the end of the decade and into the early '70s. The musical direction then changed to a more contemplative and jazzy style as the band's early personnel gradually departed, leaving the name in the hands of Carlos Santana, who guided the group to consistent commercial success over the next quarter-century. By the mid-'90s, Santana seemed spent as a commercial force on records, though the group continued to attract audiences for its concerts worldwide. But the band made a surprising and monumental comeback in 1999 with Supernatural, an album featuring many guest stars that became Santana's best-selling release and won a raft of Grammy Awards. This is a new Surround Sound CD sealed in the orginal jewel case. This CD is in the DTS 5.1 format and you must have a DTS decoder or preamp to play this CD.
