Ditto!

Tommy, you should sing more often as you have an excellent voice. Super lyrics also. I loved that snare!

This should be on the radio today!

My best to you,

Enjoyable listen!

Nothing new to add to what's already been written: Good backing tracks, engaging melody, interesting lyric with some evocative lines.

Good song. smile

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

Hooked, the both of us, by that second line - a great one of many.
You have a wonderful gift in the way you can write/sing song stories that seem, as Bill Monroe said, so "true life."

"grab a beer you won't believe the stories i can tell"

Well you may not be from the south bro' but we have had the pleasure of hearing many great ones from you!

Janice was singing harmony before the first chorus was over...it is immediately engaging.

As always your playing, the RT's and the loops make an absolutely seamless band sound -- like guys/gals that have played together for years.

The mix? You have always been one of the absolute best on this forum and this is no exception Pro studio stuff happening here.

Welcome back!

J&B

PS Yeah, we called our mamas all the time!



After having lived in both the North and the South, l have always found how different the cultures are to be an interesting subject. This story was based on a kid I went to high school with from Kentucky and how hard it was for him to assimilate to the Chicago boys who teased him unmercifully. Thanks for the really nice review, Tom

As an Australian it's hard to comprehend the cultural divide between the North n South in a balanced way as, in the 60s, our minds were filled with the pastiche romanticism of Gone With The Wind/Song of the South/Birth of a Nation & all those Shirley Temple flicks...heavy propaganda that predisposed Aussie's of a certain age.
This song shows a willingness of the protagonist to move north to a future that wasn't on offer at home.
Musically this is really tidy and very well sung.
I enjoyed it.


Cheers

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

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.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

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."
