Description

2007 marks the 20th Anniversary of the release of this classic album.
To celebrate, Surfing With The Alien is being re-released as a 2 disc Legacy Edition with a bonus DVD
Disc One: The Album
This portion of the 20th Anniversary edition of 'Surfing with the Alien' contains the original ten-track album, newly re-mastered by Joe Satriani and original album co-producer John Cuniberti, at The Plant Studios in Sausalito, California. The ten songs were written and arranged by Joe Satriani, who played guitar, bass, keyboards, percussion, and drum programming on the original sessions. "From 1979 through 1984," Satriani recounts, "I was in a band called The Squares with John Cuniberti, who was our live engineer and also did our demos, and Jeff Campitelli on drums. I self-released my first EP (Joe Satriani) and then worked with John and Jeff on my first full-length album, 'Not of this Earth'. Relativity released that recording in December 1986 and after I played some new songs at a New York showcase in January '87, the label gave me the go-ahead to make 'Surfing with the Alien'.
Disc 2: The Live DVD
The second disc of the 20th Anniversary edition of 'Surfing with the Alien' features a never-before-seen live show that captures Joe Satriani performing at the Montreux Jazz Festival on July 14, 1988 during the bombastic 'Surfing with the Alien' tour. Expertly backed by Hamm and Mover, Joe tears through "Ice 9," "Satch Boogie," and "Circles" (among other favorites from 'Surfing ...') along with tunes like "Hordes of Locusts" and "Rubina" from 'Not of this Earth'. "It was my first trip to Europe and the first of our four shows overseas," Satriani recalls. "I was supposed to arrive at Montreux in time for sound check and play at midnight on July 14. We had a direct flight from London to Switzerland.

Packaged in a digipack with new liner notes written by Joe himself.
