THE LEAVES – GIRL FROM THE EAST

THE LEAVES – \’Girl From The East\’/\’Get Out Of My Life Woman\’ (Mira Records 231) September 1966


According to \’Teenbeat Mayhem\’ the song \’Girl From The East\’ was used on three different 45s by The Leaves.

It first appeared on (Mira 222) as the flip of \’Hey Joe\’, then was used as the flip of \’Too Many People\’ (Mira 227) and finally on (Mira 231) possibly having A-Side status on this disc backed by a version of Lee Dorsey\’s \’Get Out Of My Life Woman\’.

This is one of my recent additions and I was delighted to obtain it for the folk-rock winner \’Girl From The East\’ which has some pleasant backing harmonies.

The original version written and recorded by Bobby Jameson is a much slower stripped down interlude with plaintive jangle and soul searching vocals. Both GREAT!
