Steve Vai and Legacy Recordings announced the release, on June 24th, of a special 2CD edition to celebrate the 25th anniversary of ‘Passion And Warfare’. The first CD is ‘Modern Primitive’, Vai’s first release, and the second is the remasterded ‘Passion And Warfare’. Talking about the collection Steve Vai mentions: “The music on ‘Flex-Able’ is so vastly different from ‘Passion and Warfare’, one could wonder if the same guy actually made both records. Modern Primitive is the missing link between these two records. It’s sort of Cro-Magnon Vai.
