I try my best not to get into other people’s business. But if you are a true friend sometimes you have no choice and then you might end up with the blues. All comments / suggestions welcome. Tom

I Thought You Ought To Know


Well I know that you’re in love with her

I know you’ve made some plans

But i thought I ought to tell you this

Man to man

I saw her at the club last night she was with some other guy

I think that she’s back on that stuff she looked a little high

I guess that’s just the way it goes

And I thought you oughta know


I warned you all about her i said she’d bring you down

She’s got a reputation as trouble in this town

I hate to see this happen but it’s a cold hard fact

It just won’t work out for you she can’t clean up her act

I guess that’s just the way it goes
And I thought you oughta know ©2015 Thomas Adams

Hey Tommy.
Don't normally like long intro's but this was a great lead in to your excellent vocal.
Great blues feel.
You nailed it.
Thanks for sharing.
Rob

Hi Tommy,

that's blues at its best! Your voice and guitar make it special.
I like that live ambience you mixed in.
You chose a very nice sax and piano.
An over all enjoyable listen (not only one)!

Great track, Tommy.

Liked everything, but particularly your guitar work - superb blues playing.

A nice live feel to the band, enhanced by the audience participation.

Just very professional all round.

'Bout as good as it get.

Dang cool intro. Just the right touch of everything. Should be a BIAB commercial... "Is it real.. or is it RealTracks?..."

Excellent write. A blues song with a story....Nice.

Good vocal. This fits you well.. I really like that reverb on ya...

Guitar = Tasty, tasty, tasty. Dripping with feel... maybe my favorite of your leads... S W E E E E E T!!!

The mix is IMPECCABLE.

'Bout as good as it get. I thought you ought to know....

Tommy,

Outstanding write and recording!

The crowd sound effects sold me on the idea that you had recorded "I Thought You Ought To Know" live at a club even though I knew better from reading your notes prior to listening. The illusion worked until the end of the sax solo. The crowd noise begins and ends too abruptly after the solo.

Herb, I played many years in a country band and I insisted that we mix in some blues. The hard core country guys were totally against it at first, but in the end I won them over. Hope I can do the same here. Thanks for the kind words. Tom

Glad you caught this one before you take your leave of absence. All the best, Tom

Guenter, As I was mixing, I kept thinking it sounded like something you would hear in a small club. So I tried to find some crowd noise to fill it out. Thanks, Tom

PG Music News
RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

Do you have something to say about Band-in-a-Box®? Post your own thoughts for Windows or Mac version today!

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."
