Hey you guys sound great on this one. Very sultry.

I like the line:

"I'd rather be lucky than good."

Pretty funny!

Enjoyed this one a bunch. Great guitar.

This is blues the way blues *should* be IMHO. Cool lyrics all over the place, "Cross your fingers knock on wood, I’d rather be lucky than good" for example.

Janice is just over the top good on this one, vocal is perfect, and man, that phrasing!

And the guitar is so tasteful! Great tone too. Love the trade offs with the harp.

Great intro and super cool ending too!

Nice one guys and gal!
Dave, glad you liked it. Thanks for great comments,Tom

Janice - The. Best. Vocal. Ever. This leaves no question - You should be a STAR.

Tom - your guitar in this is hang-on-every-note worthy. Your Chicago is showing. Sweet.

The mix is I M P E C C A B L E. And just to be clear, here are listed synonyms for IMPECCABLE: flawless, faultless, unblemished, spotless, immaculate, pristine, stainless, perfect, exemplary; squeaky clean

WOW.

Just.... WOW.

Tom, Janice & Bud,

Great Jazz Blues!
Great collaboration!
You have a wonderful common language called "Blues" and I am truly envious from my perspective.
Janice's vocal is wonderful ever on this tune.
The true blues feel is overwhelmed from the whole voice and it is a masterpiece.
Tom's guitar work is fantastic and outstanding.
The mix is also exceptional.
I’m not a blues man as same as Robert, but I enjoyed this very much!

Best regards.

I especially love "you can’t always leave with who brought you to the dance". I think it's a really cool line.

Really great job guys!
Ember, No doubt Janice nailed it. Thanks for mentioning the lyrics, Tom

I agree with the plaudits coming in for Janice`s vocal- this is one of your finest!
Nice biting guitar lead, Tom, and a great mix.
I`m not a blues man, but I enjoyed this very much!

Robert, I agree this is one of Janice's best melodies and performances. Thanks for recognizing the lyrics in your fine review. We appreciate it, Tom

I love the blues and this is blues at its best!

If you would put out a CD of blues like this I would be the first to buy it!

This puts some of the new so-called blues artists to shame.

This is definitely a keeper.

PS- you all are not lucky you are absolutely good great!

Nice work.

Really "pro" in every sense of the word. As a guitarist. I really appreciated the tasty, pure tone, on the solo and the fills here and there and in the background.


Thank you Herb. I was delighted to be part of this.

Herb, I was trying to show a little restraint with the guitar in this one. It would have been too easy to just let it rip. Thanks for mentioning the clean tone, Tom

Tom/J&B, it doesn't get any better than that!! This song is pure greatness as far as I'm concerned! Janice has given some great vocal performances here on the forum, but to me this one sounds the best! The production could not possibly be any better! You guys have set the bar very high for all of us! Oh and by the way, the guitar was fantastic! A very fine offering! Thanks, Torrey
Torrey, your review is everything we could have hoped for. Thank you very much for your generous words, Tom

Jim. That line happened when I was thanking someone for commenting on one of my songs. As soon as I wrote it, I added it to my long list of song ideas. Thanks for stopping by, Tom

Tremendous sound guys...

Bob, you picked up on how I was really trying to hold back a bit and keep it restrained. The star here is Janice and I wanted to compliment and let here shine. Thanks, Tom

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
