Lozarhythm Of The Day:
The Byrds - Goin' Back (recorded 9 October 1967, Columbia Recording Studio, Hollywood CA)
Byrds: Roger McGuinn (vcl, 12-str gtr), Chris Hillman (bass, vcl)
with Jim Gordon (dr)
Carole King wrote this with Gerry Goffin and gave her demo initially for Dusty Springfield to record, though Goldie (from the Gingerbreads) heard the demo at Dusty's and released the first version. It was quickly withdrawn when Carole King heard it as Goldie had sung the lyric from memory after one listen and got some of it wrong.
Dusty's single was a big UK hit single in 1966 and the song was chosen by Roger McGuinn for their album The Notorious Byrd Brothers. David Crosby thought the song was Brill Building fluff and refused to play on it. He was subsequently fired from the band (he was replaced by a horse on the album cover). The drummer Michael Clarke had also been fired since the previous album, so the album was essentially performed by a duo with a session drummer. Goin' Back was also released as a mono single in November 1967. Carole King recorded her own version for the 1970 album Writer.
