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.

Thank you so much for mentioning nature, the vocals, the write, the mix and Peter’s work with guitar and horns. You commented on every aspect we hoped to achieve and it is much appreciated.

Hi Janice, Bud and Peter,

What else is there to say than 'Wow'. It's a great song, good band and a lovely singer in every aspect!
And I saw I wasn't the only one with this kind of compliments. But you all earned them.
I also saw I was very late exposing my feelings about this song. But better late than never.
Again; I enjoyed it. It's still bouncing in my head. I only need to get the lyrics right.
By the way; one 'nit'... It's way too short!!!

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! We too felt Peter’s playing was perfect for the vibe.

J&B/Peter

This has a more pop oriented sound than your usual work! The vocals are exceptionally well done, especially the harmony parts!
Peter's contributions are great also! The guitar solo also adds to the pop/rock sound of this track! It puts me in mind of an early 70's Rod Stewart/Small Faces sound!
Great sound and production!

Thanks, TB

Thanks for posting this!

Brad

Thank you Brad. The little sitar bit was all Peter’s idea. Thanks for mentioning the write and the production. It was fun. And Janice enjoyed arranging and singing the vocals - all one take. But she doesn’t say she’s ready to record until she has it all worked out in her head. I (Bud) just go along for the vocal engineering ride. 😀
We appreciate all you wrote!

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!

Now that is a supportive review. A big wow and thank you. The mention of the piano is appreciated given the amount of comping we did. I struggled with the “proper” bass amp and settings so another thanks for your comment. It got placed on a 70’s vibe Spotify playlist and I think the piano, Peter’s tracks and the harmony contributed to that.
Thanks for all!

Nice melody, lyrics, well sung. great harmony on the chorus. The guitar break was cool especially the sitar line echoing.

Thank you Hans. We are happy you liked it and we kept it short hoping to get it on an Americana or Folk Rock Spotify playlist. They tend to like short songs. But it will be a rarity for us! 😀

Thank you Torrey for all you mentioned. We love Small Faces and Stewart’s early work so the comparison is understood and appreciated. And another big thanks for mentioning the vocals. As I (Bud) often say
Janice’s bluegrass years still show when she does one take “car horn tight”
harmonies.

Glad you liked it! Janice’s vocals definitely fall in the Karen contralto range.

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.
