Here is my latest new recording. I have a thread running in the recording section if you are interested in the technical details. I think it is a fun song, and also shows what one person can do with BIAB.

There is also a you tube to match the song. You'll find it if you go to you tube and search "aging hippie 64"

Enjoy

Brian

Brian, A lot of good lines in this one. I especially liked "still a hippie in his head". Nice surprise ending with the party sounds. The low back up vocal harkens back to the 60's vocal groups like The Chad Mitchell Trio. This also has kind of a Austin americana feel to it. I enjoyed it. Tom

Brian,

I can identify with that from across the pond (UK) and I STILL have my long thinning grey hair.

What a fun listen Brian. You have a very nice voice. Well written - some funny lines in there. Especially liked the "hippie in his head" part. I thought the upbeat production fit the song well.

I haven't seen the video yet - in addition to the song link perhaps you would add the video link to your post - make it easy for me. <grin>

Good job.

Brian,
Great lyrics and arrangement. It's got a Grateful Dead feel to it. Thanks for sharing. Can't wait to hear your next tune.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Brian,

Good tune. Here's what one aging hippie said to another, "Hey, man, wanna drop some antacid?"

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!
