Re: The Official 'Secret Jewel Box' Thread

I know bumping this thread won't do anything - but I'll do it anyways...

Re: EVO Experience

I'm catching the tour in Chicago, but didn't go for the EVO option... So, can one of you guys do a brother a favor and ask Steve about "The Secret Jewel Box" (thread above at http://www.vai.com/messageboard/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=326" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;) and when - or IF - i...

Re: The Official 'Secret Jewel Box' Thread

Here's an idea: Anybody doing the EVO experience? Take your box set along and ask him when/where the rest of the discs are?!

I don't like the idea of putting somebody on the spot, but... sheesh!

Re: The Official 'Secret Jewel Box' Thread

It's been 7 years since the 6th of 10th installment in the SJB was released, being Mike Keneally's "Vai Piano reductions Vol. 1", which is a great Cd. The announced releases that complete the set are - - Alcatrazz: Panic Jungle [Live In Japan] (2 CDs} - Steve Vai & The Classified (1 CD) - Hot Chunk...

Re: The Official 'Secret Jewel Box' Thread

I have a few questions in regards to the Secret Jewel Box... Are the remaining CDs already completed for eventual release? Has this project been abandoned altogether? Are there legal or licensing issues holding back further releases? Have there been changes to what Steve Vai may or may not include ...

Re: The Official 'Secret Jewel Box' Thread

This is what we're still missing: DISC 07 & 08: "Alcatrazz: Panic Jungle [Live In Japan]" DISC 09: "Steve Vai & The Classified" DISC 10: "Hot Chunks" Now, being that it's been years since Steve worked on polishing the guitar tracks on "Panic Jungle", I don't understand why that hasn't been released...

I like the idea of releasing them in a Pro Tools format rather than just as Audio CDs because - now don't be a hater, you six string wankers! - I'd like to be able to remove the bass or drums and play along with the songs and have Steve on the 6-string while I thump (either four strings or tubs). Ju...

Just checking in too...

I'm a big VAI fan, but this is the thread that interests me most so it's the one I keep coming back to every few months.

Somebody throw us a bone here! :)

No sweat there RS - I knew it would be appreciated.

I've actually met Stu Hamm a few times - did you know he grew up in Champaign? :)

The pluses have all been enumerated well by previous posters - and it was a fantastic show. I've seen Steve multiple times before and really wasn't planning to go again (live in downstate Illinois and HATE driving into Chicago :roll: ) but got a pink pass in my Sound Theories CD so I HAD to go! :) D...

Lots of lyrics by Yes were just as inscrutable, and fans would try and make sense out of them anyways... Jon Anderson finally said how much it amused him because the lyrics were often "just pitched mouth noises" - and he did use actual words instead of "la-la-la-ing" as people liked actual words bet...

Waiting to hear from someone that's experienced the aftershow pass - as I've got one in my sweaty palm for Chicago! :)

I got this little "patch" in my Sound Theories CD.

and have tickets to the Chicago House of Blues show in September! :D

Not sure how to "redeem" this deal - or exactly what it involves - sounds kind of like an "EVO Lite" kind of deal.

Anybody that goes through the motions on this, be sure and post what I should expect please.

Thanks!
