Hi Chris,

 

Thanks for the tips - will check them out. Hadn't realised that Black Magic Woman was a FM song - it's my favoutite track on Santana's Abraxus. Might give The Rumours  BluRay a punt, GRRR sounds very good in places despite frustrating menu and set up. Been chasing my tail with digital since my foolish early adoption in 1984. Oh for my vinyl collection back. A few of those original albums would  pay for a very tasty hifi

Yep!  Peter Green wrote Black Magic Woman and it was a minor chart success in the UK in 1968 (when I was 18 ).  Santana had a much bigger hit in the US with it sometime in the 1970s.  The opening note/chord of the PGFM version is one of the most striking I know.

My uncle had a record shop (remember them?) and I worked in it from 1964 to 1974.  I had loads of classic vinyl (like a low-numbered Beatles White Album) and let it all go in the 1980s.
