Re: The Official 'Secret Jewel Box' Thread

Long time since I have been here and I just found out about Piano Reductions 2, I also am confused about the MP version that I have, since it doesn't have anything on the spine. I got it once it came out via Amazon. Can I get a current roster as to the SJB? I purchased mine from Vai.com long ago an...

Re: The Official 'Secret Jewel Box' Thread

Appreciate the replies Jeroen, thanks. 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 a...

Re: The Official 'Secret Jewel Box' Thread

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 tha...

Please do, as I've only just seen the email I received 3 days ago, saying this is now available, only to find it listed as Sold Out in the webstore. Thanks.

Re: THE SECRET JEWEL BOX

Hello! I am the happy owner of THE SECRET JEWEL BOX by Steve Vai and the first five released CDs. These CDs have the letters on their spine : L, I, G, H and T, giving a whole word “LIGHT”. My question: Do the following two released CDs (DISC 06: "Vai: Piano Reductions Vol. 1 - Performed by Mike Ken...

Re: The Official 'Secret Jewel Box' Thread

I agree with ccristal . For example, I bought this Secret Jewel Box together with the six CDs on Ebay. And I bought the last album also on Ebay. Will I get in this case the free book? Well, I can't say for sure, but I would have thought it would be original purchasers of the box and cds from the of...

Re: The Official 'Secret Jewel Box' Thread

Apologies if this has been asked before... How will vai.com know who has purchased all the CDs in the SJB, in order to send them the free booklet? I mean... people can buy those CD from different retailers, can't they? How can vai.com keep track of who purchased what? Thanks! Maybe if and when the ...

Re: A personal message to Steve from a Jewel Box owner.

CD's are over CD's are done Who the fuck cares about a box with extra room for future crap There are plenty of people who still buy cds. They're not dead yet. Many people prefer a physical product to computer files. I seem to recall people saying vinyl was dead when cds first came out. Now look, vi...

Re: The Official 'Secret Jewel Box' Thread

Woah, nearly 3 years since I last posted here in this thread !! Still very sad that there's no further solid news on this, but thanks PSD for asking Steve about it. At least he has said it's not dead, so that's a thread of encouragement.

Re: The Official 'Secret Jewel Box' Thread

It's hard to be an artist and promise stuff. Sometimes things get pushed to the back burner when other projects come up. Think of all the cool things we have gotten in the last 7 years as Vai fans. I'll take that stuff over worrying about a box set of stuff that is hard to find but already released...

The Box ships with three discs inside [The Elusive Light and Sound; Alcatrazz Disturbing the Peace, and Archives V...

Re: The Official 'Secret Jewel Box' Thread

I think it's a great shame that many of us paid a lot of money for the box itself when it was first released, and were full of enthusiasm about it , looking forward to ending up with a FULL set of cds in the box, and are now losing that enthusiasm. Everything was great to start with, with each relea...
