Looks pretty good.....

Shame that there will only be 1 CD of content I don't already have - though I guess the CD of Alcatrtazz will be better quelity than my age old tape. The FZ I have built up over the years.

Nice desk though....

Are you sure? *They don't call it the 'Secret Jewel Box' for nothing... *

How much for the foam?

Yes, you're right, the last box set I bought was vinyl! :biggrin:

Great distraction and stupidity have prevented me from ordering mine. I have neglected a great many things of late, but this one is most disturbing.

I had no idea they were already shipping.

Is it just me, or is that thing way overpriced at $65?

It's kind of like MS Windows, you'll have to get the service packs (CD's, in this case), every so often, to keep it up to date :lame:

I can't stand when a product is released, with the promise of 'more to come.'

For Vai's music? *Nope. *If you count the 3 CD's @ $14.99 each, then that's $44.97 + the 'secret' within... *Let's call it $55. *Then, $10 for the box which is pretty cool IMHO. *$65 isn't bad at all. *I ordered 2 of them so shipping was cheaper.

If you think it's overpriced now, then wait until it goes up to $83.98. *That's a little steep.

I received my box on Wednesday!.. What's so secret besides the picture puzzle and the message on the CD spines that will take a few years to complete?

By the way, the Elusive Light And Sound disc won't boot up on my 1998 Gateway CD rom drive. This is the only one I'm having problems with. I can only play it on a regular CD player. Could it be that my CD rom can't handle 40 tracks on one CD? *

Ha ha! *Use your imagination. *Look around... find something unusual about it?

Please don't ruin the fun for everyone once you find out what I'm talking about. *Refer to it as 'The Secret Jewel'. *

yeah, unless you live in Canada, which, Rikk, you know from experience isn't really anymore money to ship to than the US, but, if you lived in Canada, shipping was $34, so the total was a whopping $99USD, sorry, but it's sure as hell not worth that to me, I've had whole guitars sent to me from Michigan that only cost $34 to ship insured!!!!

Weird. My Sony Vaio desktop PC will read that disc, but my car's CD player won't! *My regular CD player at home plays it fine, and so far all the computer CD-ROMs I've tried it on worked, but my unmodified Saturn in-dash CD/Radio spits it right back out at me. *

Just the excuse I've been looking for to upgrade that car.
