The Call: The Call
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.
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.
