From the wiki: “‘Leaving Here’ was written in 1963 by Motown songwriters Holland–Dozier–Holland (‘Take Me In Your Arms (Rock Me a Little While)‘, ‘Heat Wave’, ‘I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch)’), and was originally released as a single in December 1963 by H-D-H lyricist Eddie Holland. Pearl Jam recorded the song for the 1996 Home Alive compilation album, released to fund women’s self-defense classes, and charted on the Rock and Alternative Rock music charts. The song would later be included on the band’s 2003 Lost Dogs double album of B-sides and rarities.
“Earlier covers were recorded by The Who, including a live recording for BBC Radio that was not released until the 1985 compilation Who’s Missing. In 1965, The Birds – a group which included a pre-Faces Ron Wood and not to be confused with the US group featuring Roger McGuinn and David Crosby – also recorded a cover version of ‘Leaving Here’ which inspired heavy metal band Motörhead to produce their debut single with a cover of the song twelve years later, in 1977.
