light and Sound

I have - and thoroughly enjoy - Vai's somewhat recent album "The Elusive Light and Sound Vol. 1". My question is: will there be a volume 2? or 3!?

Yes, they are all done and ready to go. The only problem is securing the licenses. This is tremendously complex, time consuming and expensive as my attornies need to contact all the owners of the masters and negotiate. Some of them want more money than the CD will make but I'm willing to make that sacrifice becuase I like the idea of having this stuff compiled on a few CD's.
It's changing a bit but hold tight. I'm shooting for a January release on vai.com but It's all subject to the completion of the master licensing agreements.
The plan is to make them available on vai.com for a limited run and then eventually make them available in a very limited number at retail. The reason I do this is because some people can't get is any other way than to go to a store and buy it.
The only 2 CD's that are in the box that will not be available outside the box is Archives Vo. 2 (Frank Zappa) and The Alcatrazz "Distrubing the Peace" CD....
