A n edited version of Tito Puente’s “Oye Como Va” became the second single from Abraxas, nearly following “Black Magic Woman” into the Top 10. The wonderful organ solo from Gregg Rolie is missing (arguably one of the great organ solos of all time), so it appears the beginning and the end were spliced together to come it at under three minutes. “Samba Pa Ti” is the same as the elpee version.
