Sister Feelings Call was a bonus LP sold with part of the initial pressing of 1981's Sons and Fascination. A month after Sons and Fascination was released, Sister Feelings Call was issued separately at a budget price. The first three songs on Sister match or exceed the material on Sons and Fascination. "Theme for Great Cities" is one of Simple Minds' best instrumentals, "The American" (a 1981 single) exemplifies the point at which 1980's Empires and Dance and 1982's New Gold Dream cross, and "20th Century Promised Land" offers winding ripples of rhythms without one instrument taking any central role. The remainder is relatively unremarkable.
