FlinterFile: Sugarloaf- Don’t Call Us, We’ll Call You

Sugarloaf had had one hit, in 1970. In 1974, they found themselves without a record label.And so they went to look for a new label, but after a few calls, they found out there weren’t many labels interested. Finally they found a label, Claridge, and wrote a song about their search, in which they heard a lot of cliches and the famous line ‘Don’t call us, we’ll call you’. The song also was a revanche on CBS Records, who had turned them down. The first set of telephone sounds gave the number of CBS, who got called so much they had to change their number. The second set of telephone sounds lead to the White House, who didn’t change their number, but did send an official to Sugarloaf to ask them questions why they got so many calls. The song was a number 9 hit in the US in 1975. Enjoy
