As a tribute to their fallen band mate, The Call regrouped for a live performance at The Troubadour with Michael Been's son, Robert Levon Been filling his father's shoes. The show was recorded and was released on September 2nd through Label Records/Lightyear/Caroline in a CD/DVD set.
The night began with the steady rhythm of "Everywhere I Go" as Robert does an exceptional job adding a little of his own swagger into his father's legacy. One of the more generally well-known songs of the night was the safe version of "I Still Believe" as the band stick close to studio version. Robert sound like a younger Bono on the passionate "I Don't Wanna" as The Call give him all the support to make these songs sound outstanding. The performance of "Turn A Blind Eye" has a gothic-like feel to it, while "Red Moon" shows the emotional side to The Call. Everything comes together for the band's biggest hit "Let The Day Begin" as Robert's vocals gives a youthful jolt to the song's lyrics. The shows closes with the fun romp of "The Walls Came Down" and the lullaby-feel of "Uncovered."
The DVD shows the entire performance with Robert leading his father's band, The Call with his father's signature bass guitar. The way the video was captured, you feel as if you are in the front row at The Troubadour looking up at this iconic band, seeing history in the making.
