Great blues, super blues' harp, catchy lyrics, and a fantastic voice. What's not to like here.

Late on this one-
Lawd Have Mercy!!!! That's what I'm taking about! Oh yeah!!!! Awesome!! The Christmas fire is still burning hot in them pines. LOL! Wow, you`ve mixed sexy with Christmas and made it rock! Bluesy Sexy and Down & Dirty And very traditional. Ahem - nice sexy voice there Janice! Yes indeed it works for me! Janice, you sound to be having SO much fun there! Incredible bit of vocalising with absolutely superb improvisation, but yet always still in control. Great vocals that add just a enough spice to the lyrics. A great voice for blues! Great production, and OF COURSE, GREAT VOCAL!! I still say Janice sounds a lot like Susan Tedechi ... and that ain't a bad thing. What a great riff on the ending! Girl you can Sang!!! It's easy to hear influences of older blues singers and it's easy to imagine that you both have been studying ,listening to and absorbing the blues genre for a long time. The mix sounds great as usual. The four real tracks are not directly related to each other but work spectacularly well together. The bass is killer. The harmonica is a brilliant touch to the vibe, Very rockin! Great job! Very good stuff as usual.
Is this too cool, or what? I say "too cool"! I love 12 bar shuffle blues ...one of my very favorite song styles. This ain't your daddy's bluegrass. Blues Piano is also nice. Love the rhythm of this song. You guys are so versatile. Really enjoyed this and loved the walking bass rhythm. Fantastic blues, very talented people. It's so great you can put this together. Excellent production and performance.
The minute Janice started singing, it sounded like home base! My first impression was "This style sits with Janice's voice and Bud's engineering as comfortable as an old and favourite shoe". Everything rings with authenticity and polish. I really enjoyed just sitting back in my chair, admiring the talent on show and listening... first class music. A fun song and outstanding mix and vocal. This should be playing at the mall. Don't forget to leave a note for Santa containing the link along with his milk and cookies so he can use bluetooth to stream it in his sleigh. What a fun track! Instant Christmas Classic! Great Christmas pick-me-up! Terrific!
As I commented on soundcloud the vocal is terrific!! Anyone should enjoy this one
Though Santa has already appeared and gone for the previous year I must say that this was just a wonderful little bluestyped tune that was so delicately sung, orchestrated and mixed
Now that's the sort of Christmas song I DO like. Thanks for livening up the season. Gonna add it to my fav Christmas song list. One for the annual Christmas playlist.
That's good fun. Two thumbs up!
Merry Christmas to you both from Japan!


**Full disclosure. Since you reposted this song from 3 years ago, I was unable to repost my own comments from that same time. I had not been commenting much at that time. I feel I did the next best thing. I took pieces from every response from 3 years ago and reposted those as a substitute. wink
Seriously great song, performance and production. No shocker on any of those for me coming from you. I listened to this no fewer than 30 times while driving since you posted it. This truly does belong in a movie or tv show. Seriously, loved it!

Glad you liked it. We were aiming for a two minute little Christmas ditty so no room for solos...but adding them might be a fun project. Thanks!

Like this one - I don't think that I've heard it before, so I can't compare it to a previous version, but what the heck: This one is sooooo great. Love thos easy-coming lyrics, and who could ever bring them 'onto tape' more easily than you, Janice.

I do love the arrangement very much, the harmonica is a gas. Everything sounds so fresh and clear - Bud, you really got the hang of making a production sound absolutely pro.

Love this one very, very much and I'm really looking forward to the stew you'll be cooking in 2020. I think I can already smell something ... yam...

I wish you all the best, I am extremely happy that I met you and your music here on the forum.

All the best,

Stefan


Thank you Stefan for you support and for our fun conversations over the year. Oh, and thanks again for our little appearance in your video!

Best to you and Maha,

PG Music News
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!"

continued...

Do you have something to say about Band-in-a-Box®? Post your own thoughts for Windows or Mac version today!

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."
