Anyway if any people are interested, this message is ment for them. Because in Finland you can't get a credit card so easily, so the ordering through vai.com store is not so easy.
Um... that's kinda expensive! 106.95 Euros = $131.31 US Dollars.

Purchase the Secret Jewel Box through the Vai.com store and it will cost you $85 (not including shipping). $US85 = €69.22

Peace,

p.s. You can order from music today by mail too - without using a credit card.

Oops, I calculated wrong :oops:. Well anyway the costs for me were 100euros when I ordered it through Vai.com store.

P.s I didn't know that you can order it without a credit card. Thanks. But anyway I have one now so I don't need to borrow someone elses. :D

Mine finally came through the post the other day, only a two week wait so it was a lot sooner than I expected to get it. Thoroughly enjoyable, especially listening to the Alcatrazz and Zappa stuff which I wouldn't necessarily have thought to pick up otherwise. I know Steve rates Frank Zappa above pretty much anyone else, but having not heard much of his stuff I wasn't sure it was for me, even though I was curious to hear Steve's contributions to his work. Now though, having heard a decent cross-section of Zappa stuff with Steve, I might be tempted to look further into Zappa as I quite enjoyed what I heard (some of it really cracked me up as well!).

Looking forward to hearing (hopefully) the rest of the discs when they are released.

I was about to ask the same question...
Last time they went out on Steve's B'day. Do they plan the same for this year ?

What do you think the secret phrase is on the jewel cases?
I think it might be "light'sout"(or some other spelling of that phrase. What do you think?

I vote for "Light w/o Heat"

Or maybe the 6th disc will have the word "WITHOUT" in the title, then the last 4 will spell out HEAT. Just a thought.

I thought initially LIGHT_HEAT, but now that other ideas have been mentioned, I don't know...

At the moment it does look something like Light w/o heat.
Can I ask, How long did it take people to find the Secret Interview Disc under the panel???
I am only asking because I had it for let's just say over a year before I read it on these Message Boards and decided to raid the box. I would love to get the box autographed but where?!?!....
Maybe the mirror! 8) :D

It took me about thirty seconds to find it... but then again I was already looking for it before I opened it. Steve had already told us that here was something secret about it. Btw the secret disk was rather disappointing. I mean it was an interview that could already be found on vai.com in writing. I was so hoping for a few extra tunes. Can't win 'em all.

On the bottom of the Secret Jewel Box. (Maybe the top :? )
There are four corner screws, unscrew them all carefully and then you will be able to pull the panel out.
Then there is a seperate CD, and it is Steve Vai going through each track either on The Elusive Light and Sound CD or all three. (I actually screwed it back in once I heard it, so I'm going by memory...)
It was a suprise, and yeah I agree some secret tracks would've been great, but I'm glad I found it!
I actually read about it at Vai groups on Yahoo before I found out about it on Vai.com.
I am looking forward to some of the forthcoming releases Steve has lined up, and I hope we don't have to wait too long! 8) :D
