Don’t Call Us We’ll Call You is a mini pop masterpiece. It has a rockin’ riff, a great story, and it’s funny as hell. Allmusic.com called it “bubblegum sarcasm” which perfectly captures the tone of the song. Sugarloaf as a group is very underrated and it’s hard to call out a better rock keyboard player than Jerry Corbetta from the mid-1970s (although he seldom gets the credit he deserves). Listen close to hear their use of both a Beatles and Stevie Wonder riff at different parts of the song.
Stay tuned for the next Epic Opening Riff post where we’ll feature a great guitar based Epic Opening Riff…..finally!
