‘Not Of This Earth’ was Joe Satriani’s debut album and it are an eclectic collection of songs. Since Satch didn’t have a ton of money to make this recording for around 5K, the songs have simple drums/percussion and he plays bass on the tracks as well as the guitar. A refreshing and multi-faceted first album from electric guitar’s foremost virtuoso. Satriani’s music refuses to be pigeonholed into a particular genre. He tosses around rock, metal, funk, fusion, prog rock and blues with the ease of a juggler and never drops a note. With this debut album, Satch already proves to us there is nothing that he cannot do. Satch’s wonderful career pretty much starts here, and is worth a closer listen.
