I have been very busy lately and must apologize for not commenting on any of the great songs that have been posted recently. I have also been dealing with some health issues which seem to come with the territory of getting older. I won’t shake up the natural order of the first page by going back and commenting on songs that I missed. I have been listening and continue to be impressed by the creativity that is the hallmark of this forum. To continue the Texas theme from floyd’s latest, here’s one.

Gone To Texas

There’s nothing quite as big as a western sky
When daylight fades and it gets a little dark
It’s tough to see what’s up and gone so far into the night
Especially when it matters to your heart

She’s gone to Texas
Back to Mission to try it on her own
we lost that connection
Says she thinks she’s better off alone


They say it’s never easy that’s just the way it is
Evidently people clearly change
What goes up must come down and all comes down to this
What once was love suddenly feels strange


She’s gone to Texas
Back to Mission to try it on her own
we lost that connection
Says she thinks she’s better off alone


I’m not one to try and claim I know the reasons why
All i know is my whole world is leaving here tonight


She’s gone to Texas
Back to Mission to try it on her own
we lost that connection
Says she thinks she’s better off alone

Again you nail it.

I loved this before you even started singing. That groove is right there from the start that I love.

Those are some ripping loops.... the ending was too soon for me..... yeah it could have rocked on for a while.

OK back to the song.... man what a phenomenal example of a chorus that just freaking delivers the goods! And you get there before the 60 second mark in the song. Everything about this says it should be a top 10 radio song.

Very nice....

It has been literally a few years since I've been able to listen to the User Showcase. I'm glad I'm back, cause the Biab Users have come a LONG way with their recordings. This was awesome ! Love the whole song and layout, including the harmonies added. My only nitpick, which may be due to my headphones, the Hi's were a little hot for my taste. Too crisp, in other words.

Great song though, keep on writing and rocking friend!

It just wasn't the same without you around here,
so glad to see and hear a new song.

Hell of a good chorus, everything about this song
just shines, pro sounding mix. Really nice vocals
and the guitars as always razor sharp good.
I'd stay away from Mission if I wuz you, think I went
thru there at some point, that whole McAllen area
is too far south and too dangerous amigo.
Great song

Kenny

Tom,

I was quite excited when I saw your name pop up with a new post. It's been quite a while! It really is great to have you back.

Once again you've written, performed and produced a work of art that is exceptional. You have a knack for this. Time and again you show us all how it's done.

This was a terrific listen. Ear candy? Nope, it went way beyond that. This was from the the top shelf liqueur section of the songwriting.

All the best and may your mending come along leaps and bounds.

Regards,
Noel

Man, just so good! Great chorus, really makes the song.
Loved the guitar solo at the end, would have never have guessed it was loops? Doesn't matter, it fit the tune perfectly.

Herb, Once again I thank you for being such a strong supporter of my music. That lead loop smokes. No need to try and top that. Whiskey For Breakfast is so strong. A great write by the Raleigh boys and some spectacular production, playing and singing from yourself. I really enjoyed it! Tom

I always look forward to hearing anything you post on the forum. Like you, health situations I have taken me out of commission in the forum quite a bit the past few months. I hope you are doing much better. This place isn't the same without you around.

This is really outstanding. Your choruses always seem to explode onto the scene, after some good introductory imagery in the verse leading up to it. Good writing. And your vocals and "pickin" always come across just right. Like Herb said, once again you nailed it!

Kenny, Thanks for the kind words. You're right the Valley area is a little rough. We've been there many times. Thanks again, Tom

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."
