SD 356 This Night Won't Last Forever
This tune, penned by Bill LaBounty and Roy Freeland was originally recorded in 1978 and reached number 65 on the Billboard Hot 100. Michael Johnson's version made it to number 19 in 1979, Moe Bandy topped out at number 49 in 1989, but Sawyer Brown had the most success with the song, reaching number 6 in 1997. This is a classic cry-in-your-beer country tune. The singer's having a rough night at a party after a breakup, but he knows the night won't last forever and he can go home and be alone with his misery. Once again, Pat Carnathan and Jim MacDonald teamed up to produce the MIDI work and Jim played guitars on the singing call. Jim MacDonald and Andilyn Ziegler provided the butter-smooth backup vocals.

SD 355 Money - That's What I Want
The title of this song is "Money (That's What I Want)" and was originally released in 1959 by Barret Strong. Since then it's been covered many times by everyone from the Beatles to The Flying Lizards, and various artists in between. Ronnie Milsap included it on his 1986 album, Lost in the Fifties Tonight, and it's in that style this singing call was recorded. It's a fun, rhythm and blues number that will have the crowd singing along with the backup vocalists. Pat Carnathan and Jim MacDonald did the MIDI work and Jim played guitars and sang some background vocals, but the wonderful female backups were sung by Andilyn Ziegler. She sang all three female parts, and was a consummate professional in the studio. You'll hear more of her in the future!
