Rescue

Yesterday i knew my life was over

when i saw her walk away with you

I always thought that i was your only lover

And Now i find out that i was played for a fool


I’m feeling strung out chewed up spit out and shoved down in the corner

A woman should never have to feel what I’m feeling inside

Now i’m keeping on the lookout for some kind of hero

To rush right in rescue me and save a heart that died


Now i wonder how i was left without a warning

some little ol sign I must have missed along the way

The answers still haven’t come to light this morning

My whole world went dark when I saw you yesterday


I’m feeling strung out chewed up spit out and shoved down in the corner

A woman should never have to feel what I’m feeling inside

Now i’m keeping on the lookout for some kind of hero

To rush right in rescue me and save a heart that died

Good job. I'm impressed repeatedly how well Janice interprets songs. Just listened to another of her vocals on a song done back in January she helped Floyd Jane with. Completely different vibe but she nailed it and in turn, nailed it on this one too. I don't want to overlook the great instrumental performance either. The vocals, mix, writing were all in the pocket on this.

Great balance in the arrangement. Very nice lead guitar. Nice bluesy vocals by Janice and love her phrasing. A satisfying flow to the whole song. Really woke me up this morning! Cheers.

Wow!! I was sold from the first guitar lick, and never let down! So sweet, soulful, and deliciously delivered! Great stuff! The only thing I would change is heart that's died to heart that's dyin'. In fact, if it were written that way, I don't know if anyone would hear the difference. It is a subtlety but logically it works better for me, even though it's not a perfect rhyme. Great work!!! Take care. Greg

Well, i like. Great vocals, great guitar work and the style really fits the song As a guitar player the only suggestion i can make is MORE GUITAR! What i mean is i would love to hear some fills answering Janice's lines ( kind of call an response). When she sings her phrases ( which she does really, really well) there are some nice gaps to insert an "Amen, i hear you". And the guitar work is top notch so why not smile. It is great as is, and i suppose i am just being greedy to want a more.
Thanks so much for sharing some tasty music with us. Please keep 'em coming, -Patrick

Charlie & Richard, Thanks for listening and commenting. Janice does a fantastic job of fleshing out the melodies. She has an amazing gift that make these collabs a blast to work on.

R&AM & Dani, Thanks for checking in on this one and for your kind words.

Greg & Patrick, I think both of your points are valid and I appreciate you both taking the time to explain your observations. Greg, I was having trouble with that line and I think you're right. Patrick, I originally was going to add fills but after we got the vocal in there I added tremolo to the rhythm guitar and it seemed like enough to take the place of the fills. I was thinking that 3 guitar solos was enough but I definitely get what you're saying. I have been finding lately that less is more especially when the vocal takes center stage. Thanks again to you both for making those points. It's helpful.

Guenter, Thanks for your generous comments. Tom

Hi Tommy.

I loved this one from the opening few bars.

It screamed out professional even before Janice started singing, but when she did it was the icing on the cake. There was so much drama in that vocal, I can't imagine anyone doing it better.

The backing is wonderfully smooth, almost a jazz-blues and then that amazing guitar comes in and makes your ears bleed. Very, very nice playing.

Not had time to listen to much, recently, but so glad I didn't miss this one.

ROG.

Charlie, you are too kind! We are just having BIAB fun and when you have Tommy, floyd and my hubby to work it I feel like I do little of the work.

Thank you so much! Bud and I love the blues and having a chance to explore them vocally with BIAB and collabs has been very exciting.

I'm not much of a blues fan of what's sometimes called blues but I enjoyed this and think it's one of your best together.

Tommy really like the way you got the tremolo gtr to sit in the mix without it sounding too swishy. And the effects you used on Janice's fine vox are right in the pocket. Some cool guitar licks in there too.

Written, mixed, played and sung well.

Nice collab y'all.

Super song! Janice's Vocals have a Bobby Gentry vibe going here. Superb!

And I really dig the guitar intro!

Much enjoyed!

Josie , Thanks a lot. It is amazing the way you can pick out the important pieces to a song. The tremolo guitar came very late in the process after I listened to every single real tracks guitar- I added the tremolo and reverb and it quickly made the track come alive for me. Thanks again for your kind words. Tom

Y'all just make this look easy!

Terrific write, guys... a ton of emotion packed in to just a few number of lines.

Tom, your production is stellar. The combination of organ and tremolo guitar is tasty! Your leads are even tastier!!! How about doing some User Tracks with that lead!?!?!

The mix is excellent. Sounds like a band that has played together for years and was perfectly captured in the best of studios... Not sure it can be done better than this...

Janice - Wow! You have the ability to make a lyric come alive. Your phrasing in the chorus... well...just a big OMG at ya!!! You're breaking my heart...

A pure pleasure to listen to.

Our "Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows®! New Features, RealTracks, and other content!" video is now ready! Get to know all about the newest features in Band-in-a-Box® 2019: Click here to watch...

We have listed a table of contents for this video, you'll see it within the YouTube video description, or by visiting this forum post.

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!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
