In 1993 I wrote and we (Single Heart) recorded this song on our first original music album...it was a big orchestrated piece...so 30 years later I decided to simplify it a lot...this is the result thanks to BiaB...the vocals are the original 30 year old tracks (featuring five voices) and the instruments are new in 2023...so if you do...thanks for listening...Dan

Outstanding vocals!

You did a fantastic job of adding them to a new BiaB version.
Fantastic "less is more" start to the song prior to the full band coming in.

Of course I loved the lyrics and the song.


My goal this weekend is to move just enough each day so that no one pokes me to see if I'm dead or not.

Hi Dan,

Man, those vocals are crazy good!

I really like the arrangement you came up with, the way it builds.

Really well done, enjoyed!

Dan,

This is excellent. The vocals are great and the new tracks blend so well. It sounds like it was recorded today!

Loved it!

Bob

WOW, knock me down with that incredible a cappella opening. Such good harmnony and phrasing. Your usual high-level of praise and inspiration, Dan, and your signature modulation to raise it all even higher. I'm imagining the original production. It had to be something special --probably cuz that's what you always do. I really like this version. So well done.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Marty...I'm not sure I've written many songs without a modulation in them...if your interested this is the original version I just listed it in the original post...I always appreciate your comments! Dan

Dan,

Stunning vocals.

A beautiful arrangement.
Just what those vocals need (which is "nearly nothing").
Excellent mix.
Excellent work on the piano.

Hi firesong,

Nice work on the backing vocals. The piano sounds good. The whole thing is pleasant and rich in emotions. I appreciated it.

Oh my word!!! This is so well written, so well arranged, so well performed ... truly impressive!!! Yes, I'll give Him the glory for inspiring you to write this song, but you deserve some of it, too, I think, for such splendid channelling of the inspiration He provided to you. He gave you the inspiration, and you glorified Him for it in such a beautiful, reverent manner. Bravo.

That’s a very nice update, Dan.

The vocals are lush and lovely and the BiaB tracks really do them justice.

It's not always straightforward to build all new tracks around old vocals.
You did an impressive job of it.

Well done indeed,

J&B

Hi Dan,

Again a fabulous song with great bg-vocals/choir.
And, considering these vocals were recorded 30 years ago, that makes it more beautiful!
You already know I enjoy yours, and these, vocals. The message is another thing.

Yes, I got excited by the way you arranged those vocals to make them sound mighty And very harmonious (in that is a right word).
I also listened to the original recording. Also very nice! The instruments were more majestic. The version you produced now is more up front and -for me- nicer.

I read the posts above mine and everyone said -more or less- the same on this production and the choir.
So, you earn an ace for it!
In any case from me,

Hans

Hans...thanks for your thoughts and for your comparison of the two versions...I wondered if anyone would listen to the original and I'm so glad you did...they are quite different and yet share the exact same vocals...I always appreciate your thoughts and comments...I know you do not agree with the content but you are kind enough to comment anyway...so thanks...Dan

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.
