Vinylstack I think HestOn is confusing the listing above with an actual full release as it has a Symphony Sounds sticker on the label he thinks it’s a proper vinyl release when in fact it’s a dubplate too just like this one Neuromancer / Nookie - Pennywise (Unreleased Mix) / Spellbound.

I wonder who Rolling Thunder is on here (Various - Phuture Shock) credits given as : Produced by Rolling Thunder / L.D for Planet Earth (L.D being Lemon D)
As the other tracks on the release are Lemon D and Bass Junkies.

I don't really like the vocals they could have released this with two mixes on it. E.g. Vocal Mix & Dub Mix the other tune could have been released later on it's not even from the same era.

Looking at the track durations the CD version is just over 5 minutes long Jonny L - I'm Leavin' and this vinyl version is only 4 minuites.
Also the title track 'I'm Leavin' is the full length version here but the edited down one on the CD.
