Overview

Few "guitar shredders" of the late '80s were able to cross over into the upper reaches of the pop charts, but Joe Satriani proved to be an exception to the rule. And with over eight full-length studio albums in the shops by late 2003, Satch was ripe for a "best-of" collection -- resulting in the release of the double-disc overview Electric Joe Satriani: An Anthology. If you're a newcomer and are looking for a finely balanced set of highlights from throughout Satriani's career, Electric Joe Satriani is definitely the way to go. Like his pal Steve Vai, Satch could shred with the best of them, but always put the importance of songwriting before simply just blasting out a flurry of notes. Satriani's early work remains his best, including such uptempo air guitar classics as "Satch Boogie" and "Summer Song," as well as the gorgeous ballad "Always With Me, Always With You." But other highlights abound as well, including "Surfing With the Alien," "The Mystical Potato Head Groove Thing," "Devil's Slide," "Starry Night," and "Cool #9." While the majority of the tracks here are instrumental, vocals do appear from time to time, such as on the ZZ Top-like romp "Big Bad Moon." Electric Joe Satriani: An Anthology includes all the faves you'd expect.

Joe Satriani is without any doubt one of the finest guitarists of the past 20plus years. If you are looking for guitar wizardry and wonderful melodies this collection is it. I just wish he would collaborate more with contemporary bands like Nickelback or with other guitarists like Richie Sambora or Santana etc.
