I haven't but one my my friends who was a young man in the Vietnam era was in a group that seemed to be on it's way and then he got drafted.

He said he was in the jungles when they turned on the radio and he heard this from the former lead singer of the band that broke up when other people went off to war.

He was like: "Gee thanks God!"

Yeah, this whole thread is just a big "Tanks for reminding me!", swiftly followed by "Rub it in, why don't ya", innit crazy

David,

For what it's worth, Oliver was born in North Wilkesboro, North Carolina and died from cancer at age 54. Allmusic.com has a short +++ biography +++

I almost, sorta, kind of did if regional one hit wonders count. Back in the 1960's and 70's because of regional genre of music, that today is called Carolina Beach Music, it was fairly easy for local bands if they cut a record to get it played on Myrtle Beach radio. Well, I was in a band that cut a record. Actually several and two eventually were played locally in Myrtle Beach. "Linda" did quite well on radio. Interestly, I also redid the song using BIAB once I began using the program and it was the first BIAB song that I created and posted here on the User's Showcase.

But back to my 'One Hit Wonder'. Fast forward 20 some years and I was at a meeting at my job in our Charlotte NC office and during a break, the discussion somehow drifted to a few of the participants discussing the summers they use to spend in Myrtle Beach and their summer jobs. The subject turned toward 'Beach Music' and ultimately that I had released a record called 'Linda' that was played on the Myrtle Beach stations. To my surprise, one of my co-workers began to sing the song.

It had been one of his favorites the summer he worked there and he had recalled the tune and and some of the lyrics. No money involved but the moment was priceless to me. One of the biggest compliments I recall ever receiving.

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
