All Those Years Ago

This is mostly a guitar song for the simple reason I couldn't think of any more lyrics eek

The Band:

~425:Organ, B3, Background Blues Sw 120
421:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm Blues Sw 120

Marty Straub from BabuMusic is on bass and I'm playing the guitar leads. I had also recorded a rhythm guitar part, but I liked the BIAB guy better so used him instead wink

I used EZDrummer2 for the drums, blues set from Groove Monkee

Mixed in Reaper, mastered with Ozone.

All those Years Ago - 2022, Dave Bell

Another place, another time
I never saw the sign
It was a long, long time ago, down in Tupelo
It seemed I was the last to know, all those years ago

People come and people go now
Time marches, never slow
You're Just a memory trapped in time, a poem with no rhyme
It seemed I was the last to know, all those years ago

Chorus:
You're just a memory trapped in time
A poem with no rhyme.
All those years ago,
Down in Tupelo


All comments welcome!

This one really comes out of the chute full of energy. Grabbed me right away. I've gotten major mileage out of that RT 421 (Jack Pearson), it's a good one and very versatile. Vocals are good and the playing is great. Excellent work, gentleman.

BA,

Great opening! That guitar gets to talkin' right away! Cool organ, too.

Killer guitar throughout. Marty's bass is golden...Buttery - Love it!

Your vocals are cool.

Mix is good, of course.

Much enjoyed the listens.

Team,
No need for fancy lyrics, this speaks "music" very fluently. Dave wild guitar work. Marty super bass. You produce very coherent tunes, like you played for years together. Good vibe and excellent mix. I am re-discovering Groove Monkee too. Neat and very reasonably priced libraries. Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

Hi Dave,

This is my kinda music.

Excellent guitar work.

Not sure why your voice is so far in the background - you have a good voice and you sing in tune. I would like to hear it more upfront.

Best Regards

I always thought blues were an excuse for guitar players to do a lot of soloing.

This pretty much proves me right!

You and the band - even the Marty! wink - sound great

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

Yeah, it's a good one. I think I might have used it before also.

Thanks for the listen and positive comments, appreciate it!

cool shuffle.
GREAT GEETAR PLAYING.
only thing i felt was maybe just make the lead a smidge cleaner.
irrespective superb musical talent displayed in this song.
also liked the organ and the subtle rhythm playing on one side of the stereo image.

happiness.

Yeah man. THAT shuffle!

Great performances by both of you. Vocal sounded fine in the mix to us.
And, no surprise, every thing about the mix is high bar.

Bud really wishes when he runs out of words he could pick up the guitar and do half what you do.

Y'all got that Tony Joe kinda dark swampy vibe going ... and that is excellent in our book.

Enjoyed it!!!

Cool intro Dave. Made me sit up straight. Very cool groove. Bass lines were excellent. Super guitar fills and solo. Awesome vocal. Well done

I just have the three blues sets from Groove Monkee, two of which are really useful for the type of music I do. One of these days I'll pick up a couple of their other offerings, always nice to have options wink

Thank you, Misha!

Nothing extraneous in this mix. It all fits together wonderfully well.
Have always admired your guitar work and it's very nicely complemented by Marty's bass. Well done guys. smile


My music may not set the world on fire but if it causes a glow in just one person's heart, it has all been worthwhile smile

Sweet guitar, Dave. I remember when you first sent me this song. Then later figured you'd trash it because it was more of a guitar song. HA! I really like your singing voice --it's so engaging, but your guitars always shine to the top. This song is way too good to lose. Like every one of the songs you sing, this one ends with a very catchy earworm.


Enjoy whatever happens!

A very cool song. You play the hell out that electric guitar. The crew provides good support. I like the easy vocals and simple lyrics. No muss, no fuss. Good stuff.

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."
