I said I wouldn't post any more new songs, for a while. And this is still true; this one is a song I wrote a while ago, but which I forgot to post on here smile I've rememebered it because it's the final piece in the jigsaw for my new, second "vanity album", called From Me, With Love . Incidentally, Bandcamp allows me to gift the album (for download) to the first 200 people who order it ... so, if you want to download it, for free (of course), go for it ... there's already been one taker, so far smile

Anyway, here's this old song that became the last piece of the jigsaw for the album. It's called The Yellow, Gold Coin . Hope you like it - as always, all listens and feedback are wonderfully welcome. Last but not least, thanks PG Music ... I now have two albums, each one containing twenty songs. Without BIAB, this would have been impossible to even dream about. Thank you so much, therefore.


LYRICS:

God gives everyone
A yellow, gold coin,
To invest in anything
We find most fine.

At the end of our lives,
God comes to see
What you've done with the coin
He gave to thee.

So then, when He'll come
And gently ask me:
"What did you do with that gold coin
I gave to thee?"

I shall answer Him, happily,
And softly, so true:
That yellow gold coin, you know,
I spent it on you.

I spent some of it
When you smiled at me,
I spent much of it
To stop your tears, you see.

And, when you hugged me,
I cried, for I was poor;
I spent all I had
On my only amour.

***

So then, when He'll come
And gently ask me:
"What did you do with that gold coin
I gave to thee?"

I shall answer Him, happily,
And softly, so true:
That yellow gold coin, you know,
I spent it on you.

***

That yellow gold coin, you know,
I spent it on you.

Downloading the .wav version now.
I'll comment on the song when I hear it in context and in super quality.

Hi James ...

You are so good with Spoken Word. A really lovely and tender song. The backing tracks are perfect. Might I suggest a little less bass on the vocal? Nonetheless, this was a truly great listen!

HA! Love that, James. You saddened us by saying you wouldn't be posting any new ones for awhile, but brightened us up with this OLD one. I just heard this the other day when I got your whole album. Thanks so much for that, my friend.


Enjoy whatever happens!

James,

A very interesting write.
The vocal is a touch "boom-y" on my speakers.

Ray: no hurry to comment! Thanks for downloading the album!

Scott C: thanks!

Al: yes, that vocal has given me a few problems when recording, unlike a few other songs of mine, no idea why. I will listen again - I think you may well have found what it is, I was probably too tired to notice, when recording ... thanks smile

Bob: thanks!

Marty: haha. There had to be a way around things, right? wink Glad you liked the song - thanks for listening!

floyd: thank you. Glad you enjoyed the write - yes, the voice (as I said above) needs listening to, once more. Thanks for listening! smile

James,

Great reminder that God gives us abilities that we are warned not to just bury them in the sand and walk away and not use them! Glad to see you using your gift for writing songs and posting your work! This one is a very nice piece!

Thanks, TB

Elliot: thanks smile

Torrey: the parable of the unused gift has been on my mind, of late. I'm glad you've enjoyed this song, and think I'm doing something fruitful with my time by writing it smile Thanks so much for listening and for your kind words!

Positive gifts need to be exploited indeed ... and particularly those of a musical nature.

Nice production and addition to the compilation and here's hoping for many downloads!

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!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

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."
