Motörhead released a 7-inch EP in 1981 called "Train Kept A-Rollin'". It featured a live version of the song of the same name, as well as a previously unreleased cover of Metallica's "Nothing Else Matters". The EP was only released in the UK and was given away with Flexipop magazine #7.
The live version of "Train Kept A-Rollin'" was recorded in April 1978 at the Newcastle City Hall. It is a high-energy performance that captures the raw power of Motörhead's live show. The song is a blues rock classic that has been covered by many artists, but Motörhead's version is one of the most definitive.
The cover of "Nothing Else Matters" is a more subdued performance, but it is still a powerful and moving rendition of the song. Lemmy's vocals are raw and emotional, and the band's instrumental performance is tight and supportive. The song is a rare glimpse of Motörhead's softer side, and it is a beautiful and moving tribute to Metallica.
The "Train Kept A-Rollin'" EP is a rare and collectible release that is a must-have for any Motörhead fan. It features two classic songs performed in two very different styles, and it is a testament to the band's versatility and power.
