I'm still shocked about it. My band put out a limited edition 7" earlier this year with our minor key version of "Big Rock Candy Mountain" and this blog not only did a write up about it a few months back, but they just put us as #42 in their Top 50 Covers of 2011. Jack made it in at #21 with "Love is Blindness." I can't tell you how awesome this feels! It made up for not getting a tri of the WS reissues.

I'll do what I can. Though I was pleased to see we beat out that hack, Willie Nelson.

Congratulations, that's pretty damned cool :)

Thanks. It's one of the cooler moments of my musical career.

And while we didn't do any tri colors, we do have a few 7"s left for sale. ;) hint hint wink wink nudge nudge

Wow. Thanks so much for the love!

You can get a copy of the 7" at http://dollarfox.com/music-merch/.

We did our full length on vinyl, too. If you grab one, be sure to mention white swirl in your info and I'll try to nab you a copy on white vinyl! We only did 100 on the white. And all vinyl comes with a digital download.

Just got my TMR iphone case today ... thinking I might have to chop up a few Dollar Fox records and make my own custom case!

Drinking beer and making babies are my two favourite hobbies.
