It's not often that songs come in "his and hers" versions, but "Come Calling" from Cowboy Junkies' "Lay It Down" album did just that.
With the help of Alan Anton and Michael Timmins, we'll trace the song's evolution from the writing sessions on Rock Island in Ontario through to completion. We'll look at the real life story that underpins the lyric and explain just why the band produced two such very different versions of what was essentially the same song yet which demanded such different treatments.
