    Hey...

    Has anybody checked out the new live double Vai album? I just got it and am still on the first disc, but it kicks ass so far. And I think I'm one of the few who appreciate his vocal tunes...I dig his voice and writing. I don't think there's many on this album but a good one just passed by. Anywho, check it out...

    This release from Vai is the closest you will get to Passion and Warfare! He is playing these songs live and with little rehearsal. His band is awesome and they play songs in genre to the country they are playing in.
    This takes guts and total determination...something that we haven't seen in a while from a guitarist. Song 8 on CD 1 is my fav...and Whispering a Prayer is as emotional of a song as Hand on Heart and Tender Surrender. CD # 2 is AWESOME!!!! This is THE Vai album to get and if you are lucky (LIKE ME) You will see the G3 tour!
    Just go for it!

    I notice by the track listing that Mr. Vai isn't playing any material from his 1986-1988 gig, either!

    After a few listens, I like this one...as Brew Crew said, there are very different musical styles here, but held together the one constant, Steve's guitar. This guy is a true musical virtuoso. My personal fave is "Babushka" on disc 2. Cool intro, where Steve explains to the crowd how they have to play the song again because it wasn't recorded the first time. Then they start the song then stop because Steve's out of tune....and then the band rolls into a jazz number while he tunes, then he tells them to stop playing jazz. Funny stuff, and then the actual song is this Russian-influenced jam.
