Instead of releasing the "Dogs" single in the United States, The Who and their U.S. label Decca released "Call Me Lightning" as the A-side of a U.S. single in March 1968. The Who considered the style of "Call Me Lightning" to be a bit out of date for the UK market. The single peaked at No. 40 on the U.S. singles chart. The B-side of the U.S. single "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" was written by John Entwistle. Both tracks were later included on the U.S. compilation album Magic Bus: The Who on Tour, released in September 1968. It appears on the compilation album The Ultimate Collection.
