[cover art]

The Call, a California-based quartet featuring the passionate singing and writing of Michael Been, incorporated the fire of the Clash and the organic earthy soul of the Band to deliver their spiritually rooted, socially aware themes.
-- Rick Clark, All-Music Guide

In 1981, Garth Hudson became involved with The Call, an unsigned band who'd long been admirers of the Band. "The Call knew a lot of our songs and had performed them", recalled Garth, "They once asked me about a bridge of a song on Cahoots that I'd completely forgotten about." Garth played on five of the songs that made up the band's demo tape, and on their eventual debut album for Mercury.
-- Barney Hoskyns, Across the Great Divide
