Background Information

The Call were a band formed in Santa Cruz in 1980. Their seventh album was released in 1990, and was titled “Red Moon”. The album contained the song “What’s Happened to You” which features Bono providing backing vocals on the track. The original album has been difficult to find in recent years, and those looking to obtain a copy of this song should consider one of two later compilations also containing the track. In 1997 a two disc set entitled “The Best of the Call” was released which featured this song with Bono on the first disc. In 2000 another compilation was released entitled “The Best of the Call – The Millenium Edition”.

The Call have since disbanded, and the lead singer, Michael Been passed away on August 19, 2010, while working as a sound engineer for his son’s band “Black Rebel Motorcycle Club”. The only song The Call recorded with Bono was “What’s Happened to You”.

In the liner notes of the “Red Moon” album under special thanks, many names appear that will be familiar to U2 fans, such as Ellen Darst, Keryn Kaplan, Ann-Louise Kelly, and Paul McGuinness, as well as Bono and Ali Hewson. The album was recorded at Ocean Way Recording in Los Angeles.
