Mama's Goin' Home]

We're finally in our new house ... and living in a cardboard box jungle! But we're really excited and pleased!

I've been without Internet for 9 days ... just got it up and going yesterday. I've not forgotten or abandoned any of you! Will catch up on my listens and commenting over the next few days as I can.

The list of the band members is on my old computer (bought a new one several days ago). Will post the tracks soon. Just a three-piece acoustic group doing their best to play a sad song ... pretty much a dirge.

Thanks for the listen and any comments you choose to leave for me. Please be safe ...

Alan

Dear Alan, dear Di,

first of all Maha and I want to congratulate you on your new home. May all sorrows always stay outside, instead let it be filled with music.

With beautiful music like 'Mama's Goin' Home'. Very different from what I've heard from you so far, but it's of theat same unmistakable wonderful 'Alan taste'.

Using that fiddle was an awesome idea - very, very, very nice !

All the best to the both of you,hugs from Maha.

Stefan

I really like this...I'm a dirge fan from way back and a Leonard Cohen fan to compound it.
Simple arrangement and excellent chord progression.
It did make we hanker for some words though.

Another quality work from that “arranger’s mind” that you possess..always seems to be the key to how you tease the best out of what the RT’s are hiding. The chord chart surprised in a few areas, in a pleasing way. Best of luck in the new nest.

Happy for you and Di, Al. Barb & I finally got into our new place, too, a couple weeks ago. It was supposed to be done early May. Well, it surely sounds like you unpacked the most important stuff first. At first this seemed like a very sad tune, and I longed to hear Mama's Comin' Home, but as the song progressed I felt like I was already there waiting for her. Well done, Al. Now try to make something out of all that cardboard.

Another excellent instrumental, Alan.

The opening phrases sounded like Tom Waits might start singing smile

An excellent mix - as always.

Congrats on the new house (and computer smile )!

Hi Stefan ...

It's always such a great pleasure when you listen to my music and leave such wonderful comments. And yes, this one is a little different from what I usually do. But, at the time, it was something that just popped into my head ... so I decided to go with it.

I'll be sending you a PM tonight my time ... early tomorrow morning your time. I'll "talk" to you then. best to you and Maha.

Alan

Hi Ray ...

Many thanks for those very kind words! And yes, Leonard Cohen was a master song crafter ... probably the best of his era. Wishing you the best. Take care and be safe ...

Hi Tano ...

You are always very kind with your comments regarding my music. I appreciate that a lot. Whatever arrangement skills I may posses are pretty much indigenous rather than learned or "trained". It's just what comes to me arbitrarily. But I'm delighted to know it has some coherence and acceptable syntax to it. Now, if only i could sing better than a cement truck out of control!

Many thanks for your comments. Take care and be safe. best to you.

Alan

Hi Marty!

Good to hear you got into your new house so soon. I hope you and Barb enjoy yours as much as we are enjoying ours!

Thank you for the nice words about the song. It was one of those things that "just happened". I was playing around with a few RTs and when I heard the acoustic bass track, it immediately told me it was the RT I had been looking for to complete a whim that came my way several days ago. This where the whim took me.

Wishing you & Barb nothing but the very best in your new house. Take care and be safe ...

Alan

Hi Floyd ...

The Tom Waits reference hadn't come to mind until I read your comment. I can see what your hearing there. Nice analogy! the new house is slowly taking shape but will be in order soon (I hope!). Thank you for the constant support and words of encouragement... much appreciated! Take care and be safe. Happy Thanksgiving!

Excellent Al. We love the feel and as always are impressed
at your chops in putting together these all BiaB productions.
And we suspect PG Music likes them also!

Congrats on the house. We built and moved into ours
32 years ago. Time do fly.

Enjoyed it!

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."
