Same here.
Oh. And Voodoo Acid of course. What were you people thinking, leaving it out, hey?

Look at the needy little bugger, never satisfied and proud of it.

The mini site's awesome. I'm reading through all the track info right now. It looks like there's a little mix-up on The Black Forest where it says;

"3. The Black Forest (Naked)
Form: The form of this naked track is the same as the original recording.

The cue to get out of it is when you hear the reverend shout, “Let’em go!!!” Then the track jumps into the weighty E chord change. From there on out, it’s hammer time. "

Just so your aware of it.

Thanks! I'll fix that.

Steve writes in relation to FSE:

As difficult as this song was to perform and record, after it was done I thought… “Hmmm, I can get even freakier than that.” So wait till next time.

Interviewer : Don't you sometimes feel like you're beating a dead horse?
Steve - Yeah, and I'll flog it until ir comes back alive.
That made me laugh :)

And welcome to the forum!

Hey Mikey, just letting you know, no idea if you do, but Volume Three, the Fire Garden naked album is missing from the iTunes store (much to my dismay :D). Any idea why and when it will be up?

Should be any day now. Very frustrating.

If you really can't wait (which I can understand) you might want to get the tracks from Amazon's service.

Still not able to get Vol3 of naked tracks on Itunes and cannot download from amazon as I am in UK. Gutted. Every other track is fantastic though. Many hours of noodling enjoyed already. Love the mini site Mikey!!

Thanks Nick. Sorry about the delay with iTunes.. it's out of my hands unfortunately, but it should be any day now!

Once it's up, you'll see us give the Naked Tracks mini site more of a big announcement on Vai.com.

It will be available only through the Vai.com store for the time being. Only a very limited initial run is being printed. We're about 3 weeks away from having those.

Why make it limited ?

I am sure alot of people will be happy to buy the nice CD box set, so economics shouldn't be a problem as far as having enough printed so anybody who wants one could buy one.

I am one of them, and look forward to nuying the set and I have no trouble ordering through the vai.com store although I live in Europe, as I did for the Jewel Box (too bad the letters are falling off but I love it !)

'Cause the red ink of the booklet is actually Steve's blood.

Sorry guys, just pretend I never said anything.

Moving on, now.
