Nice song beautifully sung.

You say the only PG product is Midi drums from Band in A Box & the rest is live - on Soundcloud and the Website link you name the drummer?

The drums certainly have a live feel and follow the song amazingly well for Midi drums (never heard midi or RT's do the nice change at the end). If they are midi what processing did you use?

The song is excellent.

Hi Stefan,

Yes Jo has a huge voice and I remember she was a handful to record in terms of getting the levels set. She is so experienced and such a professional that she knocked out the lead vocal and all the BV's in less than 1 hour.

Best Regards
Nigel

Hello Nigel,

After 'Chugging' destroyed half of new Zealand, you thought to come with this song to finish it?
It is really Power, not only for the blues, but certainly coming from Jo Lincoln. What voice she has, amazing!

In his post Peter mentioned you used a midi drum. Couldn't you find a proper RT in BiaB? Not that it matters much, although the drums could have been mixed a bit louder to my opinion.

But I enjoyed your song a lot!

Hi Hans,

On further examination - the drums are part BIAB Midi, Part Drum Machine (Al Esis) and part Pat Steward (Real Track). Also the claps are a BIAB Loop and the Tambourine is a BIAB Real Drum.

Best Regards
Nigel

Hey folks ...

What a great listen. Jo's vocals are so sweet with so much soul and power! And it's a great song to highlight her fantastic vocal chops. Everything about this is top shelve. It's a song that makes you feel it as well as hear it. Totally loved my listen! Great work by all concerned!

Hey, Nigel,

That's one powerful song/production. Top-notch (just like all your other offerings I've heard so far).

Keep up the great work!

Brian.

Hello, Nigel et al. YES! You got the power of the blues. The power to make me stand and clap my hands and raise them in the air for a big AMEN.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Nigel,

Wow, what an awesome vocal . . . Jo nails this song. Love the production touches as well—the organ sounds great. Great intro and a terrific foot-tapping, head nodding groove thereafter. Love the break with the clapping. Just a well put together tune. Congrats to all involved!

My best to each of you,

Deej

Hi Scott,

Thanks for your comments.

Yes I would love to play it live with Jo sometime - maybe in a Baptist church with a Choir and pipe organ.

Best Regards
Nigel

Oh yeah. That was simply awesome from beginning to end.

What a vocal from Jo. It makes me want to shut my mouth.

The piano and organ are fabulous.

Everything about this track is top notch. Loved it!!!

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."
