Hey guys...on an evening in September 2000, Single Heart which consisted of myself, Bob Huston and Gene Simmons met to record a song we had done in concert dozens of times...well you've been there...we could not get it right and spent way too much time trying...what you are about to hear is our final attempt...the mics were open and the recorder running...the vocals are 23 years old but the band is new (thanks to BiaB) and some names have been changed to protect the innocent...so...if you do...thanks for listening...Dan

It's great to hear a resurrection of an old song.
This is a great display of vocal talent and BIAB done good.

Fantastic harmonies!
You did a great job in perfectly blending old vocals with BiaB.
Loved it.


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

I'm glad you left the giggle in ... it's a great introduction to the song.

Vocals and harmonies are great. Without knowing the original tracks, you did a great job with BIAB and the mix, it sounds organic and natural.
I like it!

What a great opening. The Oak Ridge Boys got nothing on you guys. Wonderfull vocals and you did a masterful job of mixing in Biab. Really good stuff, Tom

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

Hey there Dan, I don't know how I missed this one for so long - I guess I've been busy. It was a lot of fun. Yes, it took me back to some recordings I did in the past with a group I played with - except our finished product never came out half as good as this. As always, a great song done in a great way. Glad you included that intro I think it added a lot to an already good song.

Well, the fine vocal performances are a perfect match to this BiaB band. Beautiful.

Y’all really do sound like brothers in this and the joy comes through loud and clear.

Enjoyed it!

Dan,

This new backing really makes this sound great! It's nice to hear the interaction between you and your fellow singers! This is top of the line Southern Gospel Music! This should have already been playing on a lot of radio stations (not too late)! The vocals are off the charts good! For a "live" performance it's excellent!

Thanks, T

I pushed play before putting on headphones (wife is still sleeping and I had to set them up) so after reading BD's comment I know I'd be playing this one more than once --I usually DO listen to your songs more than once. Excellent choices for the band. I used to give credits to the BiaB players until I learned they prefer we didn't. At first I thought it was contract issues, but after thinking about it, realized it was more likely they would all know that if they sat in on the session their contribution would be so much better. Many thanks to BiaB for relieving us of that expense.

Giggling --yeah what a terrific opening, especially the comment after singing it over 400 times someone says, "I don't like it no more either." Challenge: let's see if I don't like it after playing it 400 times. I'll get back to you on that, Dan.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Hey Marty...how many listens are you on?...Be careful...after two or three hundred you're mind could explode and it's institutions from there on out!

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

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.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

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."
