180 gram Audiophile LP
Ranked #205 on Rolling Stone’s Greatest Albums of All Time list.
Picking up on the momentum of the band's excellent 1969 self-titled debut and drifting into harder-edged, more versatile territory, Abraxas is the confident sound of Santana stretching out and carving its own Latin rock subgenre. The 1970 set is nothing short of legendary. A confluence of celebratory vibes, bluesy jams, mellow vocals, and hip-shaking grooves, it is a cornerstone of any music collection.
Now, for the first time, you can listen to Abraxas the way it was meant to be experienced, with the instruments and musicians placed in the proper channels. In addition to correcting the imaging, Mobile Fidelity's collectable version captures the stunning tonal range of Santana's guitar as well as the nuances of his distinctive touch. Every imaginable detail is brought to the forefront.
YOU’VE NEVER HEARD SANTANA SOUND MORE SPACIOUS, AIRY, TEXTURED, OR DYNAMIC.
