Thank you very much, Scott. Glad you liked it!

To you and everyone else: I will be getting back to listening to everyone's tunes this week. I have a pre-op appointment in the morning, surgery to be scheduled and I'll be here a lot, given the fact that I will be out of commission to go to work for a minimum of 3 weeks.

Thanks again, Scott. Your kind words are very much appreciated! smile

Mike,

I liked your opening. A nice arrangement throughout. Bob does a cool violin, there. Some of the leads are a tad low. Cool harp.

A fun rocking tune. Sounds like you guys had fun doing it. It's agreat thing when that "shows through".

Hope we'll see more from you. And.. get some rest!

(chicken soup, ice cream).

Mike,

Cool rockin' shuffle. I liked it!
I agree with Floyd on the leads comment, especially the first slide solo.

Heal Up!

Mike, Now that's the way to rock. The leads need more volume, other than that the mix sounds good. Thanks for posting. Keep writing and recording. Good luck on the surgery. Tom

I really enjoyed this "tight sounding" rocker.

Nice job on the writing...

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."
