Beautiful!

Your voices are blended so nicely on this. The instrumentation is terrific - and very well mixed. (Love the crisp piano)

Rob, your vocal on this is a real stand out!

Very well done.

Hi Greg,

Thank you!
Yes we are usually not in the habit of covering songs.
However, since this was a "public domain song" we thought we'd give it a try (Rob has been a fan of DonMclean's version for ages).

Hi J&B,

Thank you!
We already thought you guys might like this, since you have posted public domain covers before.
Yes, public domain can be a wealth of material.

Hi Anne-Marie and Rob,

Absolutely stunning work!

Rob's singing = perfect; Anne-Marie's harmonies = perfect; arrangement = perfect; production = prefect; video presentation = perfect.

I really enjoyed listening to this.

All the best,
Noel

Wow.... very nice.

I liked the feel to this song....and the story was excellent.

Recording, tracks, production was top quality all the way.

This song took me on a ride....which is what a song should do. It pulled me into the lyrics and the story and put me in the middle of the action..... great job on this.


My only nit.... if you could call it that... was the ending....The ending IMHO, really needs a 4 bar musical outtro. Tag it musically.... and then slow the final measure. But, that, my friends, is how I would have ended it. The way you did end it works fine....

Another great job.... I didn't watch the video initially.... I came back here and browsed the comments as it was playing.... then about halfway through, I popped over to the video and realized I needed to watch this from the start, so I restarted the video.....

As usual... great track, excellent vocals. As others mentioned, the piano was particularly nice, especially how it lightly overlapped the vocals, but didn't intrude.

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

Receder, Floyd, Tommy, Noel, Josie, David and Herb...
thanks you for all your kind words.

Floyd: yes.. although a midi, this is one of our favourite piano's

Herb: yes, the end is somewhat abrupt. Next time we'll add some extra bars.

Rob and Anne-Marie

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box®!

Here's some of the amazing feedback we've received lately, from program users just like you!

Arthritic fingers means I find it very difficult to play anything. This program is amazing - and it does use real musicians!
-Bob E.

The power of this program is just unbelievable! It's been a best kept secret for a couple of decades now. A song writer's dream!
-Mike D

This band can practice any time of day ...LOL
-William G

Band-in-a-Box works so simple you could teach a child to do it within minutes - the RealTracks are amazing. Doing an album as we speak. I challenge you to give it a try. I am 60 years old and even though I've played 50 years, I am no engineer. But as a song writer I needed some effective tools to create quality production of my work. This is IT! It's as easy as typing and filling in the blanks. The instructional videos allow you to change settings while watching the pro. I myself purchased every "RealTrack" I could get... Take it from me, don't let this overwhelm you. It is absolutely a writer and solo artist dream!
-John S

Best part of Band-in-a-Box is that it saves me having to program drums, the Real Drummer part of the software is brilliant and natural sounding. I then layer real instruments with guys from my band. As a songwriter, Band-in-a-Box has saved me so much time it's ridiculous.
-Andy B

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "Band-in-a-Box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy. ;)
-Ilija B.

Been a BIAB man since '92, such a comprehensive source for music making! So much more to offer than "loops", it allows actual music composition to be realized. Evolve from harmonic ignorance and find out what REAL music is made of!
-Don D.

A must for any musician who wants to improve on his own, or to share his musical ideas in a professional high quality rendition.. You just play with the best musicians and that's great ♪ :)
-Jean-Marie D.

I use Band in a Box all the time. I couldn't be more pleased. It's easy to use and it sounds super-big time!
-Max R.

An excellent tool for generating backing tracks. Saves me hours of MIDI programming. Combines the best of MIDI and live audio samples.
-Steve A.
