Santana's star arrived in the era-defining late 1960s San Francisco Bay Area music scene with historic shows at the Fillmore and other storied venues. The group emerged onto the global stage with an epic set at the Woodstock festival in 1969, the same year that its self-titled debut LP Santana came out. Introducing Santana's first Top 10 hit, "Evil Ways" plus "Jingo" and "Persuasion," the record stayed on Billboard's album chart for two years and was soon followed by two more classics - and Billboard No. 1 albums - Abraxas (1970) featuring "Black Magic Woman" and "Oye Como Va" and Santana III (1971) featuring "Everybody's Everything" and "Everything's Coming Our Way." 1974's 7x Platinum Santana's Greatest Hits gathers all of the many highlights from those first three cornerstone albums in one essential right of passage package!
