Japanese bonus tracks are about as old as records being sold in Japan. :p

I know, I have all of Vai's japanese editions since well before the Archives CDs.

My gripe is finding out about this by ourselves, instead of from official sources.

Then what does the English text in liner notes say?

Don't know, maybe it'll appear one day on VaiTunes or so.

The full album download - updated last night to become available via the preorder receipt thingie - only has a single song: Gravity Storm. Hopefully Topspin will unscrew this one. :)

Had the same thing when I clicked on the link on the invoice. You should have received another email with a web address to click on together with a pass word. After using that I got the full album. Hope that helps.

Hmmm, not likely, at least for several years...hehe.
I was still waiting for a VaiTunes release of "The Boogey Man", the bonus track for Real Illusions: Reflections.
Had to recently buy the Evo Experience Interview Disc from eBay to get it.

I would buy the japanese release just for this track, and for collecting purposes, of course.
I'll look for it on eBay.
