The Essential Joe Satriani
Passion And Warfare
Passion and Warfare is the second studio album by guitarist Steve Vai, released in May 1990 through Relativity and Epic Records. It has been certified Gold by the RIAA. It was written based on a series of dream sequences that Vai had when he was younger, and in the guitar music book of the album, Vai sums it up as "Jimi Hendrix meets Jesus Christ at a party that Ben Hur threw for Mel Blanc". It was all recorded in The Mothership studio at his home in the Hollywood Hills, a 1,600-square-foot building in which his guitar parts for Whitesnake's 1989 album Slip of the Tongue were also recorded. As such, Whitesnake frontman David Coverdale has small spoken parts on the album; Coverdale, Adrian Vandenberg and Rudy Sarzo are credited with backing vocals.
Vai states that planning the album started as early as 1982, but was shelved after joining the David Lee Roth band and not picked up again until parting ways with Roth in 1989. Vai utilized many unusual recording techniques on the album. For what would come to be one of his most popular songs to date, "For the Love of God", he fasted for ten days and recorded the song on the fourth day of the fast.

The basic tracks for the album were reportedly completed within just four days of recording.

No Gravity is the first solo album of Brazilian heavy metal guitarist Kiko Loureiro. Kiko recorded with Mike Terrana in drums. It had a worldwide release in 2005. Both a "No Gravity" songbook and a playback CD were also issued and are highly sought-after by musicians and fans alike.
The title, "No Gravity" comes from the feeling that musicians feels while playing. "The further we know and dominate the rational and mathematical part of the music, the intuitive parts take control of us and really take us to 'travel' with the music we're playing. It's this point that the musician wanna hit the people, but he must achieve with himself first. For this feeling I have chosen this term: 'No Gravity'"
