Besides Alvin Lee’s energetic performance, take notice of bassist Leo Lyons pyrotechnics and accompanying percussion on his Fender Jazz Bass. I didn’t remember this from the film and this is probably was because I was mesmerized by Alvin Lee’s technique and speed.
The song also interpolates “Baby Please Don’t,” “Whole Lotta Shaking Going On,” and “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Going Home” was recorded live on the evening of Sunday, August 17, 1969. Take a listen and watch this great performance by the classic Ten Years After.
A slightly different live version of the same song issued during the previous year on the LP “Undead.” This version provides a little more space for keyboardist Chick Churchill to contribute.
