Loved the sax! This is a really nice, easy-to-listen track.
As soon as I can I'll listen to the full song.
Take care, and nice work!

Thanks to listening to what you could, Al. I can empathise to a degree as back in the late 90s I was the sole full-time carer for my mother after she'd had 2 strokes, plus she had Parkinsons and ever worsening osteoarthritis. She went from getting upstairs to her bedroom with help, then having to use a chairlift, next me having to get her into a wheelchair to get her to the chairlift, then helping her again at the top, then finally we had to change her bedroom to a downstairs room. It finally reached the point where I, a male, couldn't look after on my own as she regularly fell at night when using a commode. An aunt would have to come around to clean her up. Then even when she had to go to a nursing home for her final year I was still her head, hands and feet in the world. I can't imagine how bad I'd feel if it was my beloved in need of constant care. May love rule for both of you. <3

The fastest 7.5 minutes, i.e. time just flew as I was listening!

Thanks Mario! Yes, despite the 7:30 length it's my favourite track to listen to at the end of a long playlist as time just flies by with the flow of it.

Thanks for the response, Ray. I'm not sure what you mean with the 'ings, as for me the instruments are tight and flow, but yes, how underrated the bass guitar is as although it's often not noticed no song or instrumental - other than just acoustic - sounds right if the bass wasn't there.Many aeons of yonks ago when I was a drummer the bassist would also stand close to me as we sync'd with each other.

Thanks Ezekiel's Storm (I can't recall your name!). "Sophia Loves V2" was my first post on the forum - a simpler mix than this V3 for this chord structure - and after a solo piano intro, followed by B3 for the innitial ryhtm section, it's Mark Douthit's tenor sax throughtout. Later on bass comes in which picks it up, then finally drums to drive it to the end.

A song that builds up nicely, even if I think it's too long, especially the intro.
I would have started just before the piano at 1:32, and at 6 minutes you'd still have a long song.
But I mainly write pop songs in the 2-3 minute range, so who am I to complain?

However, it's a good song with a good selection of solo instruments, well arranged and nicely mixed, and enjoyable to listen to.

Thanks for listening and responding. I think when it comes to the length of a track it really depends on when you're listening ~ the zone you're in, the place, time and vibe. I mostly listen to this at the end of a long playlist and I'm totally in the zone for it. I've commented before that I'v heard albums and singles I've just not felt anything for, then on another day I find I'm in the zone and what previously bored me I next think is excellent.

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.
