Calling From A Country Phone is the second solo studio album by Australian singer songwriter Robert Forster, originally released in October 1993 via Beggars Banquet Records.

Robert Forster was a founding member of Australian indie rock band The Go-Betweens from 1977 until the band initially disbanded in 1989, after which he has pursued a solo career. The Go-Betweens reformed between 2000 and 2006. Forster has released seven solo studio albums with the most recent being the critically acclaimed Inferno in 2019.

Originally released in 1993 on Beggars Banquet records, Calling From A Country Phone has been remastered at Abbey Road, repackaged and reissued by Needle Mythology with brand new artwork featuring previously unseen photographs. The album also features brand new liner notes written by Robert Forster.

Calling From A Country Phone saw Robert return to Brisbane, working in the same studio where some of the earliest Go-Betweens recordings took place. In the words of music writer and author Andrew Mueller, the album comes as “a twinkling rebuke to any prejudice that wintry elegies to ebbing hope and deadpan surf-rock need be mutually exclusive propositions.”

This album is being released for the first time on vinyl in March 2020 with revised album artwork.

This album is a 2020 reissue on heavyweight black vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with a printed inner sleeve, remastered audio, and bonus 7” single, pressed in the UK via Needle Mythology.
