Rob

Alone Again

Its four in the morning and my tear drops keep falling your gone again.
You just cant stay with me and so you will leave me I'm alone again with out you.

As I stare ceiling your harsh words keep on stinging my heart they do.
Oh I need you near me to hold and to cheer me alone again with out you

Chorus
Please lonely nights wont you stay away don't come back again.
You've befriended me but I don't need you here when I'm all alone.

Bridge

Hi Rob,

Sounds pretty danged good to me. You are so good with these ballads and the big band standards. The mix is clean and very well balanced. The vocal oohs and aahs are a real nice touch on the chorus well as the response b/g vocals. Really nice!

Alan

Great vocal! Background vocal are a nice touch too, makes the song special. Definitely sounds like something Elvis might have done as others have mentioned.
Mix sounds good at this end through my studio headphones.

Rob, I don't know why "easy" listening has such a bad reputation...this is surely 'easy' to listen to, and a great pleasure. We need a portion of slow/soft compositions like this in our music diet--my opinion.

It's got the feel you were intending..your voice fits perfectly, and the background ooh's were right on. A great slow dancing song.

One suggestion...I would have liked to hear a little solo in the break around the 1:45 mark.

Thanks for posting!

Most excellent. Everything sounds great on our monitors.

You own this genre.

As Tano Music said "We need a portion of slow/soft compositions like this in our music diet--my opinion." Dittos to that.

Enjoyed it!

I really enjoyed this one, Rob smile Very reminiscent of the 50's and 60's - I'm feeling some Elvis vibes here. I particularly enjoyed the background harmonies. They flow incredibly well and help the emotion hit harder.

Really well done! Thanks so much for sharing smile

Hi Blue. I'm working hard to improve the quality of my recording.
I really feel that studio one is going to help me do that.
Thanks for listening. Rob

Hello Tano. Really appreciate your thoughtful comments.
Thank you also for your suggestions.
May re-look at this song at a letter date.

A really nice song, well written and nicely done. I also was waiting for a guitar or pedal solo that wasn't there, but still very well done.

Rob,
Very classy vocal and love the background oohs.
The mix sounds good and clear ( maybe a little quiet, but its a low key song).
Enjoyed.

Rob, that studio one certainly seems to work for you.
You've come up with a very pro-sounding song with very cool backing vocals as well.
Nice, nice, nice

Hello, Rob

The fragrance of Elvis is strongly drifting as usual.
Male chorus part is grasping the taste of the 50's years.
It is very effective and comfortable.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Now this is great 50's music!

Are you sure that you were not signed by Sun Records?

Everything about this one is top shelf so its a keeper.

PS - Studio One is a great DAW isn't it!

Classic melancholy sound!! Your vocals always shine. I like the relatively sparse arrangement on this. Mix sounds great to me!! Take care. Greg

Rob,

I missed this one and I'm glad that Jim brought it back to the top of the list.

I really enjoyed listening to song. The arrangement, mix and production are great and, as always, you sound really polished and very easy-on-the-ears. It was a pleasure to jump on board for the ride.

All the best,
Noel

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. (Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
•There's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
