Together is the eleventh studio album by Anne Murray, released in November 1975. The album reached number 15 on the U.S. country album charts and #142 on the pop albums charts. It was one of Murray's few albums during this time period that did not chart in Canada. Two singles were released from the album: "The Call" (also sometimes referred to as "Long Distance Call"), which reached #19 and #6 on the U.S. country and A/C singles charts respectively, and "Sunday Sunrise", which reached #49 on the country singles charts, and #13 on the A/C singles charts. "The Call" was a rerecording of a song, which Murray had originally included on her Honey, Wheat and Laughter album in 1970. This album also has the distinction of having the great Dusty Springfield doing backup vocals.
