Hi All,

This is called Albuquerque.

I walked to Albuquerque
In the first part of my dream
Following the path you left me
Following the path you left me

I left my home in Woodstock
In the second part of my dream
Following the path you left me
Following the path you left me

Woke up in Albuquerque in the rain
Running horses and falling manes

I walked to Albuquerque
It was midnight in my dream
Following the path you left me
Following the path you left me

I traced my steps this morning
In the third part of my dream
Following the path you left me
Following the path you left me

Woke up in Albuquerque in the rain
Running horses and falling manes

I walked to Albuquerque
In the first part of my dream
Following the path you left me
Following the path you left me

I walked to Albuquerque
In the first part of my dream

All BIAB Tracks:

Bob,

A very dream-like write. Which makes sense - it's a dream song!

The baritone guitar suits the subject matter, too.

This could easily be in the background of any number of current shows on Netflix or Amazon. (OA would be a good one for it...)

Good mix (as always).

Poetic and non-specific, very evocative.

I liked the subtle build as you brought in the instruments.

Nicely done, as usual.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

I recall Neil Young doing a song called Albuquerque. In fact I could hear him covering your version.
Nice relaxed mood and immediately familiar. Good choice of instruments and nicely performed.
Very enjoyable.

Bob,
I read the lyrics, listened to the tune and had very particular thought in mind to my response, but as soon as I scrolled to the first reply, FJ's post caught my eyes. He wrote exactly what I was feeling smile This was wayyy strange.

A very calming, dream like song indeed. Nicely put together and performed. Loved the tremolo guitar choice.

Thank you for sharing!

Misha.

Bob,

Your vocal carries the feeling. A dream that gets to you is powerful song inspiration!
I like the repetition in the lyrics and of course that tremolo guitar.
I also hear a little Neil Young in this... and also the kind of song Emmylou Harris chose for Wrecking Ball.


Robert

I always like it when you use that tremolo guitar, it is a good fit for your sound I think.

Great as always, Bob, I'm a fan!

Another cool track Bob!! Very textural. Rolls along so nicely with that Brent baritone guitar feeding the rhythm as it goes. Nicely done!! Take care. Greg

Nice work on this smile Love the imagery in the vocals, your rustic delivery adds a lot of merit as well. I found it fit perfect with the instrumentation, and it was nicely catchy too.

Thanks for sharing!

Really cool vocal Bob. Sounds so different than you other tunes. Super lyric and background. Just loved the guitar with the tremolo. Very cool effect..

RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

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."
