I won't go into my unabashed adoration for The Call, but this particular album is a nice one to have even if you own all of their other albums already. It has acoustic versions of a couple of songs from their To Heaven And Back album, one of which has Bruce Cockburn on guitar (whom I also adore). It also includes the cover song Michael Been did of the Mark Heard song, We knew Too Much. However, I would not recommend this to someone who isn't familiar with The Call because it doesn't have any of their really excellent songs (like Even Now, Oklahoma, etc) that make you fall head over heels for them :-)

"The Call is a band that demonstrates a genuine ability to make sense out of some of the world's issues and issues of the heart. They have this magnificant ability to find truth and make beautiful music out of it. This truly is a righteous band. The music that they make speaks so individually yet at the same time universally to anyone who can appreciate it. This band has never made a bad album, they are for humble people who want so much more than noise out of their music. The Call's music comes with a message and when you hear it you will not be disappointed. If you know of any upcoming reunion's please let me know."
The most powerful underrated bands of the 80's and 90's!

"Why the call never had more commercial success is truly a mystery. Once heralded as one of the best up and coming bands by Rolling Stone for its work on Reconciled (although this was their 4th album), The Call remained in the background over the years, continuing to produce wonderful music for its lucky fanbase. This "best of" compilation ranges from their first commercial MTV hit "The walls came down", through Michael Been solo projects, to their covered hit "I still believe" fron the movie The Lost Boys. Their song "Everywhere I go" is certainly a masterpiece, although my favorites are Michael's powerful ballads which showcase his strong vocals and dynamic range. This compilation surely belongs in anyone's collection. You will not be disappointed!"
