Well, I thought since I had the good fortune of having a testimonial on the PG Music website speaking of how I planned to use Real Band and BIAB to produce my next two albums, I should put up the opening track to one.

This is called Spotify. It is a heartfelt and poignant tribute to the music industry and all my friends writing great songs all over the world. I hope you like it.

very Dylanesque, David!

and I think Spotify is a good target for a humorous arrow of a song. It's also such an integral part of today's music scene that you have an automatic recognition and identification advantage with your audience.

Cool photo on Sound Cloud too. Looks like the guy who might have written this song. ;-)

but.. I never did see your lyrics on soundcloud. oh wait... I neglected to click the little "see more" arrow. My bad. (Erase erase. )

What a wonderful and creative write and performance. I was hearing David Byrne (Talking Heads) every now and then. The title made me curious, I use Spotify as the first place I look for new and old music. Every week a ton of useless crap (to my ears) comes out, but I search for and find Steve Earle, John Hiatt, Jason Isbell(live in NY sessions) no Lucinda Williams (she don't play with them) Ryan Adams and so on. So, I take the good with the bad, please don't destroy my Spotify, it's how I get by, I can find James Brown there
along with Frank Sinatra.
I'll write an answer song to this! Don't destroy my Spotify, good music will come back by and by...

Kenny

Great stuff David!! I love the message and the delivery (I too thought of Dylan). I'm a big fan of the old days, and there certainly is a lot of crap out there but a few diamonds are buried beneath here or there. You did a great job with this. Enjoyed it thoroughly! Take care. Greg

Very interesting delivery - (the music reminded me of Dave Mason's last album that I was listening to recently -and he often sounds like Dylan). Nice production,

Kenny,

Thanks! I would LOVE if you wrote a response song. I was giving a little nod to the Traveling Wilbury's here and I think if you riffed off of my riff that would be hysterical!!! Go for it man!

Ha ha ha. Great idea. Love it.

David,
Right on! Funny stuff. To my ear it reminds me of Randy Newman.

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...

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."
