Don’t Call Us, We’ll Call You

“Don’t Call Us, We’ll Call You”  is a hit song by the psychedelic rock band Sugarloaf.  Co-written by lead vocalist Jerry Corbetta, the song was featured as the title track of the band’s fourth and final album.  It was the band’s fourth single.  The song peaked at number nine on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in the winter of 1974-1975 and number 12 on the Cash Box Top 100.  The song is their second greatest hit.  It spent 21 weeks on the chart, four weeks longer than their bigger hit, “Green-Eyed Lady”.   (More from Wikipedia) 
One of the bandmembers in Beast, Bob Yeazel (who also runs the website) had been a member of the legendary West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band a few months earlier, and he later joined Sugarloaf (“Green Eyed Lady”, “Don’t Call Us, We’ll Call You”).

Yet another band on the 10th Pebbles album, the Moonrakers featured members of the later band Sugarloaf that had two hit songs in the 1970’sGreen Eyed Lady (1970) that I simply loved back in my college days (there is a “long version” on their album, as well as the short version that is all they play anymore on the radio); and Don’t Call Us, We’ll Call You (1975).  The latter song was aimed at CBS Records (a/k/a Columbia Records) after they turned down Sugarloaf for a recording contract; in retaliation, the band included toward the end of the song the touch tones for an unlisted telephone number at the record company, plus those of a public number at the White House
