GREATEST HITS
The Best of the Call - The Millennium Collection   The Best of The Call   The Walls Came Down: The Best of the Mercury Years

The Call was formed back in 1980, in Santa Cruz, California, although technically they started out as a band called Motion Pictures in the late 1970's.  After sending out demo tapes to a number of record companies, they landed a deal with Mercury/Polygram.

The Call released their debut album in 1982.  The album garnered the attention of Peter Gabriel, who asked the band to tour with him in 1982.  Their follow up release, Modern Romans (1983), featured the hit song "The Walls Came Down".  Their 1986 release, Reconciled, featured the hit songs "Everywhere I Go" and "I Still Believe (Great Design)".  They also had a couple of hits in 1989 with the release of Let the Day Begin (the title track and a song titled "Your Run").  Their 1990 release, Red Moon, was their last album with a charting single ("What's Happened to You"). 

Fans of The Call will know that the band had heavy hitters collaborate on some of their albums, such as Bono (U2) and Peter Gabriel.  Although the band continued producing post 1990, they split in 2000.  Vocalist Michael Been passed away in 2010.  The other original members, Scott Musick, Tom Ferrier, and Jim Goodwin, have been known to reunite from time to time for shows (in April of 2013, for example).  The Call Discography is as follows:

    I STILL BELIEVE:
