Hi Floyd and Scott,

Thanks a lot fellas.

Remember that all those groups had a "bass man" who could hit the real deeeep notes? Then, along came Leo Fender to invent the electric bass and put all those guys out of business.

To add insult to injury, now there must be 40 groups calling themselves The Drifters, 40 more doing the "Oldies Circuit" as The Platters, etc.

Time marches on ... Thanks for your kind words.

Dean

Cool. Got the 1950's standing on the city street corner vibe nailed. And a little finger poppin' too if memory serves.

Hi Guenter - and Happy New Year to you too.

Yeah, it was fun and also unbelievably time-consuming. I've been having lots of trouble with the 2014 version of RealBand, even with the patch. It seems not to be as good in rendering RB files into WAV files as previous versions.

Shoobydoobydoo, shoo-bop shoo-bop, ramma-lamma-dingdong, baah-doo, bop-sha-waddy-waddy and sha-na-na-na / sha-na-na-na-na to you too, my friend.

Dean

Very nice Dean the Doowopper !:))

You´ve put together a nice tune
that I´d love to dance to, but
angels are too light for dancing
down here on the ground so I guess
I´ll have to wait for a swing yet some time !:))


Cheers
Dani

Dean The DooWopper - I love it Dani!

I'm happy you liked the tune but as I mentioned it was really murder to put together. I can't imagine doing something like that without the RealTracks. But the bass line I had to handle myself. I think you can hear a few fairly wicked licks every so often.

With kind regards from the whole group,

Dean and the Baah-Dooos

Thanks SpaceDog,

I have a real soft spot in my heart for DooWop. And I come from the subway and the street corner, so my creds are in order.

Happy New Year to you.

Dean Clark (aka Aleck Rand)

Whoa, Janice and Bud -

You picked out Fingerpoppin'! Now, do you remember who did it?

OK, this isn't a quiz - I'll tell you the answer: Hank Ballard and the Midnighters. I would have sworn it was Chubby Checker - bet anything on it. But I was never able to find any version done by him.

By the way, I was one of those kids in the subway or standing on the corner with my buds. We were trying to figure out who wrote the book of love, but we just stood around scratching our heads.

Dean

Dean,

Listened to this one last night but got sleepy and didn't leave a comment. Yes, I thought of Clyde McPhatter and "Finger Poppin' Time", too. it's one of my very favorite DooWhop songs.

Ya did a great job on this. Just listened to it again. I'll have Di listen later to night. Gotta go fix dinner (Di is significantly disabled, so I do most of the cooking and housework).

Loved it! Take care...

Al (and Di)

How cool! Thanks for taking BIAB in a new direction! DooWop is one of the lost genres of RnR.

You are right about the "tribute" bands out there. It was like that even 30 years ago when I would tour with them. But, then the unwritten rule was the band had to have at least one original member before they would be added to the bill at a Nadar's Rock n Roll Revival back then. They were a ton of fun in addition to playing the music, it was great to meet the guys behind the mics like Cousin Brucie and Don K Reed.

You have to figure doowop is 60 years old. That would make many of the guys today in their mid 70's at the minimum. Not too many have kept their chops that long. That is the nice thing about playing an instrument. I suppose this is where we players that used to get their early to set up and stay late to break down can still do what we do.

Keep pulling out the nostalgic sounds!

Rick,

Great to hear from you. Yeh, I do remember the "one man rule" and your mention of Cousin Brucie - I can still hear that jingle: "Seventy seven, WABC" and Brucie would play something like Blue Moon (Ba ba ba ba ... dingy dong ding Blooo Moooonnn) - Wow, you bopped some nostalgic nerves right there.

Here's another thing I wonder about: How did the Platters -> FourTops/Temps/Motown -> Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes/Philly Soul (with The Mighty James and Pickett riding the entire train) evolve into .. -> Rap? Is there a missing link that just passed me by without notice?

Regardless, I'm glad there are some folks out there who appreciate this great stuff. I miss a lot of things and that's one of them. The next one I do will be what I consider to be the greatest of the great from 1959 (shoo-bop shoo-bop). That one's gonna take a while.

Dean

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."
