This is a blues tour de force. Kicked it on all levels. Brent was great but Jarvis was right there with him. Vocals and mix are super. Great work!

Wonderful blues. More than just a few shades of Sir Tom Jones in your vocal! Bravo!

Great blues, and I echo musician17, there's a lot of Tom Jones in your voice.

Very good mix and a good selection of instruments, I especially love that Dow Tomlin bass.

Oh, yeah, you have such a good voice for these songs, Nigel. Excellent choice of bandmates. Yeah, maybe Tom Jones --but better. I also like your Treat Her Right better than the one he sang. Terrific Blues sound. Much enjoyed.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Nigel,

Killer opening to this song—totally engages the listener and gets the foot tapping and head rockin’. Like those back up vocal call backs. Smokin’ blues number right hear. Great mix and stellar vocals. Very well done, sir!

All my best to you,

Deej

For me there’s no better place in the band than to have one leg in the harmony world and the other in the percussive. Thank you Paul Tutmarc and Leo Fender.

Rocking with a nice raw instrumentation and mix. Brent fits excellently with your rough lead vocal style. I enjoyed also those nice backing vocals.

Hi Marty,

Thanks for the kind comments.

I had completely forgotten about the original "Treat Her Right" when I wrote my song. I just had a look at the amazing performance of Roy Head: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1FYAB74OIeI.

Best Regards
Nigel

Rockin' blues indeed.

That is one fine display of an all BiaB ensemble ... along with an excellent vocal and mix.

Hard to go wrong with Brent and John -- excellent musicians in all the contexts we've heard them.

A little Tom vibe? ... yep. Lotta folks don't know what a heckuva blues singer he is.
Reckon you've seen the special that featured him and Lulu on some killer blues tunes.

Enjoyed it!

J&B

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first?

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."
