Recommended: Telephone Line (Pop4)

#1,246: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! Scott McPherson from ELOBF recommended virtual foursome Pop4 dropped Yours Truly KJS a line recently with news of their rather good 'new' cover of the Jeff Lynne penned ELO classic "Telephone Line". The track was recorded in August last year for inclusion in a new album entitled "Super Hits Of The 70's", for which their is currently an ongoing two week pledge campaign from Sunday 5th March via WFMU (click here to pledge).

You may recall that the excellent Pop4 album "Summer" was the subject of this ELOBF album review last year. Scott and fellow Pop4 cohort Andrea Perry were also key contributors to the Sproutless project album "Jordan: Revisited" which contained a clever version of "Looking For Atlantis" full of "Turn To Stone" overtures (click here for more info). Their love of all things ELO is more than apparent in their recordings and their take on "Telephone Line" proves it!

Find out more about Pop4 (who are Scott McPherson, KC Bowman, Kirk Adams and Andrea Perry), their cover of "Telephone Line" &/or how to pledge towards WFMU's "Super Hits of The 70's" album via these links thus:
