This has a classic late 60s blues feel...the sort of track like The Thrill Is Gone that knows how to use a bit of orchestra, light & shade and an understated vocal.
I like the original and this is a different beast.
COOOOL.

Hi Moto,

A very relaxed song with a very good band and sologuitar. The brushes sounded so bright and closeby I felt I was sitting near to that drumkit. Loved that!
Your singing was almost hypnotic and very good.
I think it was Floyd who wrote "bartender... another drink" (or something like that) and that was how I felt too.

I enjoyed it all,
Hans

Hey Rayc,
I'm a kind of the 60's, although I try some more modern things, I love aiming for the vibe.
Thanks for listening and your comments.

Hans,
I can't tell you how pleased I am to read your comments.
I was shooting for that intimated feeling, glad it came across that way.
Although, I typically use BIAB for drums, I still like to treat them with EQ & compression to deliver the sound I'm aiming for.
Sometimes I get close, sometimes I blow it.

"Music is all about the story and the emotion so, when a listener feels the emotion, I feel I've accomplished my goal."

A tip of the pint glass to that.

A good point and one that often is missed when it comes to what defines good blues...as this song is.

Lots of accolades above. So big ole dittos from a couple of big time blues folks!

We enjoyed your performances very much.

J&B

Upgrading to Band-in-a-Box® 2020 is Easy!

Did you know... anyone who has owned a previous version of Band-in-a-Box® is entitle to upgrade pricing - you do not need to have your old version installed!

Maybe you used to own the Windows version, but you now have a Mac... that's not a problem either!
(or if you owned the Mac version, and now you have a Windows computer)

In both cases, you would purchase from the "Upgrade from 2018 or earlier or crossgrade" row here for a new Mac version, or here if you want the newest Windows version. Just need to upgrade your 2019 version? Use the "Upgrade from 2019/2020" row.

When you purchase your upgrade from either of these rows, you will receive a complete installation - just follow the steps of the setup, and your Band-in-a-Box® will be ready to use!

PG Music Inc. shopping cart accounts were not required to purchase from our website prior to October 29, 2014. With that in mind, you may have to create an account in order to upgrade - that's OK! You'll still be entitled to upgrade pricing.
