Jinx,
A song of all ages, I'm afraid. Beautifully put together, looks simple (but isn't) :-)
Special thumbs up for Clare... with vocals that touch the soul...
I guess in a previous life I was Irish

We need more anti-war songs..... after all. we've been in a constant state of war now for how many decades? No victory, no enemies defeated.....lives shattered, sons and daughters buried.....

Maybe I need to write and anti-war song too.... oh wait, I have....


Nice song. This reminds me of Fairport Convention and some of the other groups of the time..... nicely done.

I like your singer's voice.

This sounds like some of the anti-war folk songs from the 60's maybe something Judy Collins would sing. Now that is a good thing in my book!

Everything about this is perfect!

This is a keeper.

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."
