Was there ever a Vai Album released under the title “Light Without Heat”? Thanks,

“Light Without Heat” was the original name for the VAI band (1993) and the “Sex & Religion” record. Both were originally going to be called “Light Without Heat”, but Steve has a couple of companies by that name already (Light Without Heat Merchandising and an equipment rental company) so it would have been a headache for accounting, file keeping, etc etc. The VAI name added the recognition factor to the band’s name so that made sense, and as the record progressed, a theme started to emerge and the “Sex & Religion” title became the right one for the project. Collectors take note: advertisements for “Light Without Heat”, the band and the record, did actually run in a few music magazines in early 1993 before things were changed.
