45RPM: #74-75 Motörhead (1977)

Motörhead had originally planned to release their debut single White Line Fever / Leaving Here on Stiff Records (BUY9) in December 1976 but United Artists put a block on it but it did come out in 1977 on French label Skydog. The French release swapped the sides around so Leaving Here was the A-Side and White Line Fever was relegated to the B-Side. In 1980 they would release the song Leaving Here as part of The Golden Years Live EP and even managed to get on Top of the Pops!
