Hi All,

Here's a song I wrote several years ago - this rendition features fresh instumentation, a new vocal and vinyl processing with Ozone.

The Scene

She is digging the scene
Minetta Lane never looked so clean
Headphones on to drown out the sound
Minding her business as the deals go down
She is digging the scene
 
Hey pretty baby can you look over here
Hey pretty mama can you lend me your ear
She ain’t your baby she ain’t your mama
She bought a ticket for the Café Wha?
She is digging the scene
 
Subways on time cause it’s late again
Heading back to Brooklyn at 2AM
All these hustlers wanna follow her around
They look her up and they look her down
She is digging the scene
She is digging the scene
She is digging the scene
She is digging the scene
She is digging the scene

Bob!

This is the Rock-iest song I've ever heard from you (I think).

I never considered how well your lyric style would fit a flat-out-rockin' sound... but MAN! does it ever.

A great DRIVING mix. Drums and bass are excellent. A nice balance of rock guitars. And the vocal sits in there just right.

REALLY enjoyed this. Had me rockin' in my chair.

A big WOW on this one, son...

Bob,
Hot stuff! Wholesome tune. Listens very well. Very cool use of scratch loop. I initially thought that was Fx'd Wha Wha pedal, until I looked at your recipe smile

Thank you for sharing!

Misha.

Bob,
I kind of squirm when reviewers say "this sounds so much like...,but hey, Lou Reed channeled with amazing authenticity through the Robert Dean style is just so good!
Bass and drums are loud and a little bit garage loose. Your vocal and the lyrics are fine... Cafe Wha? You take me there.

Robert

Robert pretty much sums it up for me.

Outstanding track!

Nice work on this! The Lou Reed comparison brought up is totally valid in my point, and never a bad thing in my mind. The song really has some punch to it, and your gruff vocal suit the instrumental perfectly.

Thanks for sharing smile


Cheers,

Enjoyable fast pace tune, great groove, that loop works nicely and the guitar going back and forth gives vivid third dimension feeling. I like your rock voice.

Fantastic. Immediately engaging(the sort of song you know well after one listen), some wonderful textures, great vocal and lyric.

Really very, very good.

Out of the park, Robert. Yeah, early Lou Reed "Sweet Jane." Way to strike it, Robert.

You paint the picture well. I like this rockier side. The band is nice and loud, but not overly dramatic, leaving room for your signature vocals. Good one, Bob.

Hi Robert,

On your SC-page I wrote this is realy a Rocksong! My last song was qualified as a rocksong, where I thought it was just Pop. But yours surely is!
You did a good job there. And made good use of your vocals.

How cool is that?!!!!!


Well rsdean meets the wall of sound smile

Anthemic we think.

Perfect drums/bass for the feel.

Great vinyl effect.

Man, talk about jumping outa your niche!

Love it ALL

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.

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.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
