I remember that song! I'm sure I had that album back in the day.

Very nice Josie, love your vocal and especially like the BGV's. Fun video, enjoyed your flute solo wink

I really felt like your vocals were excellent for this genre of music, and I feel you did a really wonderful job with the cover, staying true to it while making it entirely your own. Thanks for sharing!

Very nice. You managed to make the song your own. Smooth.

p.s. Walking Streets Of Gold is very good too. Your recordings are so clean and smooth.

Nice cover Josie! I really like the that arrangement. Haven't heard that song in years, but it's a keeper. Did some digging, don't know that Neil Diamond wrote it and the Monkees recorded it. Gonna go look for a version myself.

Thanks for posting

Jeff

Josie,

There is a lot to like about this video and song. I enjoyed listening to this. Both versions by the Neil Diamond and Monkees are high energy. Your low key version is an enjoyable difference.

I enjoy hearing your singing. Great arrangement and the flute solo works.

The video production works too. Where did you get the background from?

Wonderful job Josie, you should really consider doing some live streaming. I know I would go to a Josie show.

So different from The Monkees version.
Really enjoyed this loads. Great singing and its clear you were enjoying the whole thing.
Loved the invisible flute. lol.
The mic cover hides your face a little too much. A little bit mic, a little bit you? smile
Excellent.

Charlie, Jim, Danny and Ian - thank you! I sure do appreciate you.

Oh, Lord Ian, if you knew how much courage it takes to show by face at all....you got it - little bit camera little bit me. grin

Jim it's a throw. I'll try anything for a backdrop. I have a supposed to be pro green screen I bought a few years ago but I can never get the lighting right. Every time I get tempted to try it again, I end up wasting a ton of time getting all ocd trying to make it work in here which it never does. That is why I don't have another vid up yet. I spent like a week this time before throwing up my hands with it. smile So it's back to the throw or whatever else I can find.

Thanks again for all the support.

Josie

Josie, we have done a few now using green screen backgrounds. Initially it was difficult because in a home setup (no fancy lighting) it is pretty much impossible to get the lighting consistent across the entire green screen, so you would set the filter on one part of the screen but the other part that had different lighting would still show.

Marty discovered in the software he was using he could set a sensitivity level to compensate for the inconsistent lighting when filtering out the green, maybe your software has a similar setting? Just a thought.

The Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin Works Great in Windows® 11!

Simon did it again - another test in Windows 11! See how well the Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin works with Windows® 11 in his latest video: The Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin Works Great in Windows® 11!

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!"

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."
