PARADISE IS EVERYWHERE

This song was sung by my good friend Karen Wilmot. The video is from my family's trip to Mauritius about 13 years ago (hence the video quality!) My favourite part is when Holly is sitting in a submarine looking absolutely terrified!

Joanne,
My favourite image is of the little girl snoozing on the boat...and of course the lovely, lazy summer atmosphere to the music.
Happy memories to a swing beat!

Robert

The trip looks absolutely lovely. I was never able to take trips like this with my family, so I shall live vicariously through your experiences!

Robertkc pretty much said what I was going to say! <3

Hi Joanne,

That was so nice! Love the casual music and it was perfect for the video. This was a real treat - watched and listened twice! I was going to mention my favorite places in the video, but that would have been about three minutes worth.

I really loved it! I've traveled a lot - over 40 countries - but never got to Mauritius. In fact. I've never been anywhere in the Indian Ocean - flown over it several times, though!

That was so relaxing and your vocal was captivating. Thanks for the smile ion my face!

Alan

Joanne and Karen,

This has some similarity with the ukulele version of Over the Rainbow.
It sounds different from your usual work, but very nice.The video is lovely.

Robert, Ember, Scott C, Al-David, Rob and Anne marie, Graham, Peter and Bud and Janice.
Thanks for the nice comments and for viewing the video. It was so much fun going through all this old footage to select some for this track.
Al-David, Mauritius is really a place to visit if you can get there. Paradise smile

Nicely done.

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."
