Leaving Here

The first version of Leaving Here I ever heard was the live version by Motorhead which was part of the Golden Years ep. It was years before I released that it had originally been a soul song written by Holland-Dozier-Holland and released as a single in 1963. The Motorhead version is said to have been inspired by the 1965 recording of the song by British R&B band the Birds.

The version posted comes from the following year and is possibly my favourite version of the track, I love the laid back vocal which is kind of at odds with the tempo of the track.

The Who also covered this song but I also think that Magic Bus owes more than a little to this track.
