    I'm sure this has been done before but anyway... A thread for the songs that stiffed on first release, but became hits later when they were covered by other artists. Inspired by the "Better than the original" thread, but here we emphasize that original.

    Feel free to argue about which version is better

    Peter Green wrote and recorded Black Magic Woman with Fleetwood Mac in 1968. The song was later made famous by Santana in 1970.

    To me, John Schneider's hit cover is the definitive take on this song.
