Robert alluded to it...the lyric is ethereal yet the vocal is so organic and, yes, it does make for a great and effective contrast.

If CD's were still popular we'd say you are working on a boxed set. And ALL of them are so good.

You ain't one for filler!

Great band here as always and we agree with floyd on the held chords. Perfect glue.

And the vocal delivers and delivers.

Wonderful listen(s)

Nice vocal - tons of passion...

I like the production - a bunch. LOVE the way you used the held electric chords...

Terrific listen.

I agree completely with Floyd. I really like the way you put so much feeling in each and every song.

This is a winner.

Bob,

You consistently put out some very engaging songs—all of which just hang together and accentuate each other. There’s a killer album in the offing . . . if that’s the direction you are going. This tune, as do your others, creates such a compelling atmosphere—lot of emotion here, and your vocal sells it. Great stuff!

All the best,

Deej

So much to enjoy here Bob. Cool imagery, and backing that's just right and nicely mixed.

Cheers

Really well done! It flows tremendously well, and I liked how the lyrics really tell a story here. That, paired with your voice on this makes it a very grabbing listen for me. Perfectly catchy on the hook too - the chorus was a standout to me.

Nice work and thanks for sharing smile

Really liked the vocal delivery and the acoustic guitar. Lyrics had me wondering which, I think, is a good thing in songwriting.

Very nice write! Strong and airy. Nicely mixed and listens easy. Different from last several tunes, but in a very good way.

Thank you for sharing!

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-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.
-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.
-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 it.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry 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.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-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.


There's detailed information on our 2019 notation enhancements here: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 New Feature - Notation Enhancements

Jump to the Notation topic in our Band-in-a-Box® 2019 new features video.

Attention Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac users - a new FREE patch update (build 315) is available!
Review details and download here

Summary of changes for build 315 (Nov 15, 2019):

Fixed: Exporting MusicXML files was not working.
Fixed: When using "Auto-Hand split Piano track" feature, exported MIDI files contain wrong note durations on the Piano track.
Fixed: Note-based lyrics were not included when exporting MIDI files.
Fixed: User should be prompted to save their song when exiting, if they had added or removed plugins.
Fixed: The Record Audio dialog always says “Track type is Stereo” even if the track type is mono.
Fixed: The [Audio Options…] button in the Record Audio dialog was launching the Audio Devices dialog instead of the Audio Settings dialog.
Fixed: Loops dialog title bar displays wrong track name.
Fixed: Large patch map files are not completely loaded (were limited to 1985 patches).
Fixed: Notation context menu > Edit Section Text… did not do anything.
Fixed: Notation context menu > Insert Section Text… did not do anything.

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
