Album Review

Drawn from a concert recorded May 3, 2006, at the Grove in Anaheim, CA, Joe Satriani's Satriani Live! comes as both a double-CD and a simultaneously (and separately) released DVD. The audio version presents more than two hours of typical Satriani guitar work. He was promoting his latest album, Super Colossal, but that didn't prevent him from casting back across his career for selections from such previous sets as Joe Satriani (1995), The Extremist (1992), Flying in a Blue Dream (1989), and particularly Surfing with the Alien (1987), making this a de facto best-of. The crowd was wildly enthusiastic, and Satriani wasted little time doing anything other than playing, pausing only occasionally to talk about his guitar and his guitar picks. The first disc maintains a steady pace, but the guitarist varied the mood in the second half of the show, turning to what pass for ballads in his repertoire ("The Meaning of Love," "Made of Tears," "Circles," "Always with Me, Always with You") before revving up for a powerful finish. Casual fans can pick this up as a good sampler of the entire Satriani catalog, while more intense fans will enjoy noting differences between the live versions and the studio recordings with which they're already familiar.

Customer Reviews

Amazing

This performance is flat out, hands down, amazing. Made of Tears is phenomenal and Circles is a display of guitar masterwork. His impromptu solo in Just Like Lightnin' is a nice change of mood that you really don't expect at all. Crowd Chant is fun as always but some idiot whistles and ruins a couple parts. If you download this I do want you to know one thing, I bought the DVD and I obviously know his songs very well. Flying In a Blue Dream is the first song, however, somehow Redshift Riders is first so switch the titles and track numbers. Enjoy. I know you will.

Great New Material...

The CD is pretty good in my terms - I've been a Satch fan for a long, long time - however, I would really have liked to have heard the signature licks that are on the studio CD for his new material. That's lacking. However, it's never a disappointment. I must say I’d really like to hear some older material versus the same 5 songs he continues to play when he’s on tour. Ie.. The Mighty Turtle Head, Speed of Light, Echo, Luminous Flesh Giants. All-in-all – great CD and DVD.

Under the radar!

I'm a huge Satch fan and I completely missed the release of this, I'm not sure how. But regardless, it's a great release, and I've been itching to hear some Super Colossal material live, (particularly Crowd Chant,) at least until he comes touring near me. Highly recommended. Also, there is a DVD of this in stores as well that is great, except for some weak camerawork.
