Hello It's Me

There are lots of very cool songs about not being phoned, not picking up a phone or simply about the joy of a telephone call. Two years ago I did a telephone mix for Dazlingsoul, called ‘Tunes for your telephone’. For 'Hello, it's me' I replaced some of the songs and changed the sequence. One of the new songs is a track from Mayer Hawthorne. It is from his very nice new album ‘How do you do’. Am I getting old or am I getting gay, but I like the new (quite soulful) Cliff Richard album (‘Soulicious’) too… ;-) Tell me, what are your favourite telephone songs?

NYC's lush disco crew Escort are readying their self-titled debut LP for digital release next month and early next year on CD and vinyl through Escort Records (Tirk will handle the release in Europe). There's a free download of the album's opening cut, 'Caméleon Chameleon (Club Remix)'. Check it out, it's cool!
