Legacy Recordings today released Joe Satriani: The Complete Studio Recordings, a 15 CD library box housing the rock guitar virtuoso's most comprehensive anthology ever.
Joe Satriani: The Complete Studio Recordings is also available as a collectible limited edition USB drive exclusively on satriani.com. The entire collection on the USB will be in 24-bit/96kHz "High-Resolution Audio." HRA offers Joe's audiophile fans higher resolution in bandwidth, wider dynamic range, greater detail, and more depth than a conventional CD. The HRA recordings are as close as a fan can get to both the early 1/2" analog masters and the later high sample rate digital masters. All albums have been re-mastered specifically for HRA delivery by John Cuniberti.
All 14 of Joe Satriani's landmark studio albums, from Not of This Earth (his 1986 debut) through Unstoppable Momentum (2013's masterpiece), are included in the new collection alongside "Added Creations and Bonus Tracks," a newly-curated anthology disc of rare compositions and performances falling outside the purview of Satriani's official album canon, and Surfing with the Alien, 1987's platinum-selling breakout.
Joe Satriani: The Complete Studio Recordings presents brand-new digital masters, overseen by Joe Satriani, with each CD packaged in a replica cardboard jacket. The library collection is housed in a specially designed clamshell box with a booklet filled with photos and memorabilia from across the decades.
