This is a great value box set, featuring some truly inspirational instrumental guitar tracks (and the odd vocal) from the legendary Joe Satriani. Sometimes the hands wander a bit, and the whole thing gets a bit self-indulgent (eg. widdly-diddly overkill) and other times I feel like I'm listening to the incidental music from Baywatch, but that can be excused when we consider the overall quality of the songs and the beauty of the playing. Standout tracks include Cool #9, Headless and Trundrumbalind.
My major gripe is that Satch's greatest achievement and one of his most popular albums - Surfing With The Alien - is missing. Released after Not Of This Earth and before Flying In A Blue Dream, I was amazed to learn that this sublime album is not included. So you won't be hearing Echoes, Satch Boogie or Lords Of Karma. Otherwise, nice collection.
