J&B...man that was really, really good!...I agree with Bob...maybe my new favorite from you all...love the tempo, cadence and the ebb and flow of the gentle melody...Janice, you killed it with your vocals and Peter's solos were perfect...Bud , I am always amazed at your production skills and the lyrics are so relaxing and flowing...not to mention a sitar riff (a little Beatle's touch...why not?)...I absolutely loved this one!

They are a stroll, as is the melody --the whole thing invites an evening stroll.

Thank you Marty. We had hoped that you would enjoy this one. The positive nature of it reminded us someone! 😀

All you wrote is much appreciated!

This brought me back to the 1960's so thanx for the memories.

I concur with Bob: new favorite!

The harmony is delicious. And the vocal is an A+.

A tuneful tune that is a joy to listen to. I can see why it was put on the playlist.

The production is pristine and well mixed.

The melody, the harmony, Janice's exquisite vocals (lead and harmony), the superb lyrics and Peter's awesome guitar work sat so very comfortably on my psyche.

What a great chorus!
  • Quote
    I always come alive in the evening
    listening to the night birds singing
    surrounded by the glow of fireflies
    I no longer think of blue skies

These lines are highly visual and I felt like I could almost reach out and touch the fireflies.

Then when verse 2 came along...
  • Quote
    when the full moon is shining bright
    that’s when my spirit takes flight
    walking through a field of silver dew
    with every step my soul renews

...I felt like I was the character in the song.

From start to finish, I was with you all, all the way, and fully involved in the unfolding story.

Terrific everything!
--Noel

Noel, you are too kind!
It is a real treat for you to quote the lyric since we so appreciate your lyrical skills.
"From start to finish, I was with you all, all the way, and fully involved in the unfolding story"
We can't ask for more than that which describes or should about anyone's objective with a tune.
We hugely appreciate your time, the image and the generous comments!

What could be more beautiful than hearing the night birds singing in the moonlight, very heartfelt image. "with every step my soul renews" describes perfectly Janice's walk and your love of nature.

Very smooth and calming song, beautifully flowing melody and when sung with such a pleasant voice and lush harmonies, this is a winner. Peter's guitar paints the night and the glow of fireflies nicely. The arrangement and the mix are high quality, I especially enjoyed how the horns give that extra spice. Somehow reminded me of Fleetwood Mac.

Ha....congratulations!....I don't think I've ever written one less than 3 minutes, I'm a failure!

On a serous note, this sounds great especially with Peter on the axe.
Good mix and some sweet BGV.
Very well done all around and a great listen.

Thank you for sharing.

Great job guys! Bud had some great ideas for this song, both in the writing and the production. I never would have thought of putting in that sitar, and had no idea Peter played it. No need to hear it from me, but I can't help but telling you that you all have a winner here. I always appreciate Janices' vocals, but man she really does well here - both in the lead and harmonies. Thanks for posting this!

Janice at the Top Of Her Game. But then, when isn't she?
Killer harmonies (of course).
A good piano-based production. Peter's fills/leads - nice!. Sweet sounding Bass. The sitar is a wonderful surprise - fits perfectly...
The standard Perfect Mix.

A delightful song. Definitely goes on the favorites list. Love the Chorus. And that smooooth melody...
One of your best!

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.
