We're #1!!

DC and The Troublemakers not only made Mark Bialczak's Top 10 List for 2007, we got the #1 spot. We could not believe it. Especially in the company of Joe Whiting and Mark Doyle, who put out a great CD (their first together in 20 years) and Los Blancos, one of the favorite roots rock bands in CNY. It was so gratifying to be recognized for all of our hard work, sweat, tears and all of that. It truly can be agonizing sometimes to figure out how to make a good record. It feels like it was worth the wait and our effort. We kept telling fans that asked when the cd would be done, "Well, we think this spring" then "Maybe by the fall." Then "We're getting close! " Thanks to everyone who stuck with us and bought the CD when it was finally done. And thanks to Mark B for listening to it and giving us the good word. We came out of our gig on New Years Eve and someone had written in the the ice on the back window of our van: Donna Colton #1 CD of 2007! When I got in the van to drive to my day job it was still there. By the time I got to work, it was salted over. That's how it goes...
