The 2 CDs in Electric Joe Satriani make a great introduction so Joe's music to anyone. The selection of tracks, which was made in part by fans on his official internet site is superb. It gives you the more rocking tracks as well as the ballad type pieces.
For anyone who is unaccustomed to his music, his excellent taste in straight-ahead rock creates excellent musical basis for him to play solo guitar melodies over the top of. At times, his playing can become highly virtuosic- this guy taught Steve Vai himself, as well as many other famous guitarists. However, he knows when to shut up, and has a brilliant ability to give each song exactly what it needs.
For experienced fans, this CD contains two previously unreleased songs, The Eight Steps and Slick. The former was actually a bonus track on the Japan release of Strange Beautiful Music but Slick's not been seen at all before. Every recording has been remastered, and it all sounds bigger and better than before. And to top it all off, Joe writes about each and every song in the liner notes, explaining things related to the tracks.
A great introduction to the new Satriani fan, and a must for experienced fans too.

A double best of from the ex Deep Purple and mainly solo geetarist. My fave Flying In A Blue Dream is on it and 3 or 4 tracks from each of his albums. I paid about £3 so great price for all the Satriani you would ever need.

If you are fan of rock. If you are a fan blues. If you are a fan of just good music then Satch is your man!. Perhaps you have heard of him but not sure where to start, this collection of 30 or so songs is a perfect introduction to his early to mid work. Included are all the bestsongs from his most famous albums (surfing, flying in a blue dream,the extremist etc). However you will also find some lost gems in the mix such as the funky yet brilliant "why" or "clouds race across the sky". I myself bought this album to see what he was all about and I have never regretted it.If you are into your shred guitar work, you will find that Mr Satriani really does stand out from the rest. He produces music which is not based around the basic premise of "look how fast I can play, I'm a knob!". His music is expressive and emotional, his technique probably unsurpaseed, his tone incredible but most of all his compositions are meaningfull and moving, something the likes of many modern guitarists seem to have overlooked over the years. Mind you if you want to have a good head bash there is still plenty of stuff for you get your hair flying!
In conclusion, highly reccommended worth every penny.
P.S. just in case im starting to sound like his PR man, I'm not! but I really do believe this guy is amazing!

I am ashamed to say until a few weeks ago I had not even heard of this man, my fiancé loves rock of all types and had remembered a friend introducing him to a few of his tracks some years ago.
This album is a fantastic way to hear all of his different types of music and his stlye of playing. my fiancé says he is an amazing guitarist and with my small knowledge of this type of music I definitely agree.

As a huge fan of Joe's, I bought this CD the second it hit our waters. For me, and other huge Satriani fans, this is basically all about theliner notes inside that Joe has written himself that give a reallyinteresting insight into what was going through his head when he wrotethese pieces and generally what makes Satch tick.
For Satriani newbies or less-dedicated followers, this is a great CD thathas the Joe Satriani you'll ever need in one place. Songs like "TheMystical Potato Head Groove Thing" demonstrate Joe's amazingguitar-playing ability, "Love Thing" shows off Joe's beautiful tone andsong-writing techniques and tracks like "Summer Song" and "Mind Storm"just show off how much Joe Satriani ROCKS!
All-in-all, a great CD for anyone who just likes to have their foottapping. The two bonus tracks are slightly disappointing and I would haverathered one CD had all his slow songs and ballads on it while the otherhad his more upbeat stuff though. Those points seem trivial though afteryou've just been blown away by how someone so technically gifted couldpossibly be able to have so much song-writing talent on top of that.

If you are a confirmed Satriani fan who (for some reason) needs a compliation then this is for you. It is a generous and well packed double disc. For that (and the undeniable technical brilliance of the playing) I will give three stars though it would be 2.5 if I could.

If you are new to Satriani and want to check him out then a fiver is hardly a big gamble. You may love it. You may find that you are not rushing to buy the back catalogue.

Years ago a friend gave me a "you must hear this" compilation tape. I listened to it a few times but was never grabbed. A few months ago I decided to give Satriani another go but I remain disinterested. There is not a single track that has stuck in my head; which I want to play again as soon as it has finished.

I have a large collection of music played by the likes of Iommi, Paige, Rosier, Young, Schenker, Blackmore, Rhodes and Clarkin. There is many a fine instrumental track amongst them but nothing in the Satriani Anthology ranks with them.

I cannot help feel that the term "noodling" fits too well. The tracks are often accompanied by an overly heavy drum kit which detracts from the guitar.

I will keep listening and may become a convert but it has not happened yet.
