Goin’ Back Acoustic Guitar Cover with on screen chords

This is a simple guitar strum along with the rare Freddie Mercury track

Larry Lurex was an artist name used by Freddie Mercury for a musical project by Trident Studios’ house engineer Robin Geoffrey Cable, in 1972.

The name is a pun on the stage name of glam rock star Gary Glitter and the metallic yarn Lurex.

Cable was experimenting with re-creating the “Wall of Sound” style favoured by Phil Spector. He recorded cover versions of the following two songs:

“I Can Hear Music” (1973) (written by Jeff Barry, Ellie Greenwich and Phil Spector, which had been a hit for The Ronettes and The Beach Boys)
“Goin’ Back” (written by Carole King and Gerry Goffin, which had been a hit for Dusty Springfield and The Byrds )
Cable enlisted singer Freddie Mercury from the band Queen to perform lead vocals on these tracks. (Queen were recording their debut album in Trident Studios at the time.) Mercury in turn suggested bringing his band-mates Roger Taylor and Brian May to add percussion, guitar and backing vocals to the recordings.

The tracks were released as a 7″ vinyl single on EMI in 1973 (catalogue number EMI 2030); it did not chart in the UK, but it did manage to hit #115 on the US Bubbling Under The Hot 100 chart. This pre-dated the release of the first Queen album. They have subsequently been included on the 1995 Italian bootleg Queen In Nuce and the Freddie Mercury solo compilation albums The Solo Collection and Lover of Life, Singer of Songs.

Part of the song, “goin’ back” was used on the track “Mother Love” on the final Queen album Made In Heaven.

“Goin’ Back” (aka “Going Back”) is a song written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King in 1966.[1] It describes the loss of innocence that comes with adulthood along with an attempt, on the part of the singer, to recapture that youthful innocence.[2][3] The song has been recorded by many different artists, including Dusty Springfield, Goldie Zelkowitz, The Byrds, Elkie Brooks, Deacon Blue, Marianne Faithfull, Bill Drummond (of The KLF), Nils Lofgren, Freddie Mercury (on a Larry Lurex single), The Move, The New Seekers, The Pretenders, Diana Ross, Richard Thompson, Phil Collins and Bon Jovi as well as by Carole King herself.[4]
