- steve vai: naked tracks vol.1 - 5 cd box
(2009, 5cd, usa, favored nations)
Steve Vai's "Naked Tracks" box arrived earlier this week.
Steve Vai goes karaoke, as this box contains 5 CDs with backing tracks from 7 of his albums.
I admit that it is a bit strange to listen to backing tracks of classic guitar tunes such as 'Answers', 'Touching Tongues' or 'Lotus Feet', while noodling the guitar melody line.
And, yes, this box is only aimed at musicians that want to play along, but on the other hand, these albums do show that Steve's compositions are so much more than 'just' a lead guitar melody line.
Available through Vai dot com.
