Hi John,

I love the upbeat, feel-good groove you've got happening here. "Keep on Running" was a pleasure to listen to. Early on in the song, I couldn't stop myself thinking, "This is an extremely well crafted song - lyrics, music, arrangement, mix, performance." The slide-show video was the icing on the metaphorical cake.

I'm already looking forward to your next one!

All the best,
Noel

Great! I was half expecting something on the maudlin side and it was a surprise to discover how upbeat the tune is. Nice lyrics, vocal and mix. Thanks for posting this. And the vid is great. Love the imagery and the B&W production.

John,

Have to agree with Noel when he says:
"This is an extremely well crafted song - lyrics, music, arrangement, mix, performance."

Nicely done. Nice job on the video. And what a great gesture. I commend you.

PG Music News
Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
