Yeah I'd like an answer to this too please Jeroen?

Does seem odd to have to buy one CD twice just to fill the Jewel Box...but at least we're getting somewhere.

The one on Amazon is the same.
There is a new batch in the webstore.

As far as there being two releases of MP (one with PAW and one Stand Alone), to the best of my knowledge:

The PAW/MP release was Sony and Sony's responsibility. Whereas the SJB release for MP was done by Steve under FavoredNations. I'm not quite sure actually how much influence Steve had over the Sony release.

So, it's $13.99 for the cd from the webstore, but $29.40 for shipping to the UK !! Seriously ?
So $43.39 for one cd to fill a bit more of the gap in the jewel box. I can't believe it !

I recently sent off for another cd from a US band, which was shipped from Hawaii to the UK, and the postage for that was $5, so how can it possibly be $29.40 for this ? I bought all the previous Secret Jewel Box cds from the Steve Vai webstore (an older version), and the postage to the UK was far more reasonable.

Looks like I'll have to go to Amazon. :cry:

I just dropped a mail to our Merch guys to see what's up with these shipping charges.

Last time I checked, following Jeroen's post above, the postage to Uk had dropped to $9.99, from the crazy $29.40 it was previously. However, I'd already ordered it from amazon.com by then, and have now received it. Cheaper ordering from amazon.com than from amazon.co.uk by the way !
