After a full long year of producing my latest CD, 50 Years Singin' & Playin', it is finally finished.

CLICK HERE to take a listen...

There are 15 songs... some are gospel and some are country hits and a few I wrote myself.

I turned 62 years of age just a few days ago, and that's when I sent the project to the duplicating facility to have the CDs and covers manufactured. Last year 2008 was a long year and I was finally pleased to get the project completed. Maybe there'll be some songs that you will enjoy.

I had lots of help on this CD. From BIAB and Real Tracks to live musicians:
OC Clinton
Mario D. DeLaura
Muzic Trax
John Ford
Mick Emery
MAC
Alan Simm
John R. Whitney
...and others...

I was delighted to have our lead guitarist from our local country music band (The Pickup Band), Mr. Kevin Goodwin playing some guitar licks on several songs. He's a talented 25-year-old, and a super friend of mine. We have lots of fun playing in the band! He's also a great singer too, but does not sing on this CD, unfortunately.

I am grateful to all the participants who contributed their talents to make this CD a success.

I know you will enjoy hearing their talents too!! Thanks guys!!

Congratulations. The music sounds professionally done (no surprise, there). It's a big achievement, be proud of it.

Thanks, guys, for your kind words. I kinda think this is the best CD i've ever produced. The reason for that is: I had the best talent to make it all happen. Without high quality musicians and singers, there would have been no high quality.

Many of you guys made it happen. And for each and every one of you, I am grateful and thankful.

I don't have any way of doing credit card transactions over the net, but if anyone wants the actual CD, just send me a PVT message, and we'll go from there.

Thanks, folks!

Ray,
You should open a PayPal account if you don't have one. Then people can pay into that. You'll have to see what the fees and transactions costs are, but they aren't that high.

Ray,

A magnificent accomplishment! Nicely crafted in every detail - performances, mixing and mastering.

First-rate work from all concerned; and a credit to your organizational abilities, your skill with PG software, and your sense of music.

Congratulations ...

Next up should be the obligtory album cover picture of Ray walkin' down the railroad tracks with his MIDI keyboard over his shoulder. Preferably in a cowboy hat of some kind.

"Ray Thigpen -- Travelin' Man"


Extra points for doin' it in artsy monochrome.



Good job, Ray!

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!
