Alive in an Ultra World is a live album by Steve Vai, recorded during The Ultra Zone world tour in 2000, and released in 2001. The songs compiled on this album were written specifically for the countries that Vai and his band were visiting. Aside from "Devil's Food", which is found on Vai's previous album Fire Garden, these songs were penned during long soundchecks and could not previously be found on any other album. Due to logistical complications, some songs could not be recorded in the nation they were written for.[2]
