Help me find this song which features a great number of answering machine messages over pretty guitars. Please?

This song was put on an unlabeled mix for me years ago and I've been wonderin' wonderin' wonderin' ever since.

nobody did some great research in this AskMe into some of the numbers and people mentioned, which may not be necessary but which is worth quoting, anyhow:
For the two phone numbers given without an area code, it seems the area code is 586, which is in Michigan:

First sample
"calling give you the dates of the test": 758-0390 -- a cardiologist's office

Middle bit from Bob Nelson: 264-2300, Bethesda Church, where "Bob/Phyllis Nelson" are in charge of "Senior Ministries."

Best answer: It's from Papa M, the album is called "Live From a Shark Cage". I always thought it was the weakest track on the album actually.

Note: Papa M is also David Pajo, who's played for Tortoise and a bunch of other bands. He also records under the name 'Ariel M', I think. The song is called "Crowd of One".

Response by poster: Wow. Yes! Thanks to you and yours, one million.

It's a fantastic album. I'm pretty sure the whole thing is just him overdubbing himself on various stringy instruments. I thank you, I'd forgotten about the album for a few years now and you reminded me.
