Guitar virtuoso Joe Satriani’s new 15-CD box set, The Complete Studio Recordings, is scheduled for release on April 22 and celebrates his career with new digital remastering supervised by the artist. The set includes a disc of bonus tracks as well as all 14 of Satriani’s studio LPs, mastered in 96k 24-bit High-Resolution Audio and housed in a clamshell case.
For Satriani obsessives, Joe is also releasing the set as part of two lavish bundles that can be preordered from his website now.
The first bundle, called the Chrome Dome USB Edition, sells for $185 and includes the entire CD set housed in a life-size sculpture of Satriani’s famously clean-shaven head. The removable sunglasses have a pair of USB drives secreted within them that contain the same material on the CDs.
A second bundle priced at $210 adds a hardcover copy of Strange Beautiful Music: A Musical Memoir written by Satriani and Jake Brown. Both the CD set and book will be autographed by the artist. Both bundles are expected to ship on May 1, 2014.
