Joe Satriani (Dreaming #11) 1988




I got a soft spot for this one in particular for one reason and one reason only. I'm on it!!! No lie!! Dreaming #11 is an EP of 4 songs. 3 live tracks were recorded at the historic California Theater in Downtown San Diego during the Surfing With The Alien Tour. The 4th song was a brand new song called The Crush of Love.

Ok, enough with the praising. I give Dreaming #11 the rating it gets for the simple fact that it's incomplete. Not only that, the entire concert exist. How do I know? The night of the show, KGB 101.5 broadcast the entire show live, which I had the good sense to have a friend of mine tape direct off the radio while I went to the show. And let me tell you...the sh*t that's on that audio tape is f*cking insane. The best, and I mean absolute best parts never made it onto the album. I really don't understand why they didn't just release the entire show as is instead of making it an EP.  I understand that the record company wanted to throw something out into the market to capitalize on Joe's now legendary status as Guitar God. But if they can make an EP, why not a full LP?

As for the new song, The Crush Of Love, it wasn't even "new" at the time. It had appeared in the pages of Guitar World Magazine earlier that year as a free flexi-disc, which I still have to this day.

Fave songs: The sh*t you don't hear. Seriously, this version still gives me goosebumps.
