if you MUST get only ONE joe satriani cd, let it be this one. it has a pretty standard mix of joe's hits, including most of his best work. if you have the budget, and are truly interested, you should just go ahead and buy his individual CDs in order of appeal. they are pretty cheap, and each one is a fantastic mix of it's own. there are simply too many songs to fit on two, or even three CDs, but this one is a good buy for those who simply don't want to buy all 14 his studio albums.

This is a good collection of classic Satriani. It exemplifies why he is considered among the top of guitar virtuosos.

I have been a satch fan for years. I have to say this is a great essential collection. While it pics great songs I can't help but feel its not quite complete. Where is "big bad moon"? There are other songs that I would have put on here but this is the only one I feel needed to be on the essential. But I'm nit picking. Good album if your a fan and can't affored to get the entire album catalog or if you just found joe.

This CD is okay. Especially for only 30 songs from the guitar virtuoso Satch. I have started to develop bigger taste in Joe Satriani and it turns out that the songs listed as well as the mastering is better on the anthology set over this one. I still do not regret buying this though, I am always willing to pay supports to this awesome dude. lol
