A Quick One-the Who

In the US it was called HAPPY JACK but the Who's 1966 album, A QUICK ONE featured the seeds of Pete Townshend's concept of a rock opera in its suite of songs entitled A QUICK ONE WHILE HE'S AWAY.

  1. great album. this was the Who's second album, wasn't it? interestingly, if you listen to the - much later - Odds & Sods album, there's a track at the end called Glow Girl, which was written and recorded around the same time as Quick One, which tells the story of a plane crash, and ends with the refrain " it's a girl, Mrs Walker, it's a girl, " pretty much laying down the template for the coming of Tommy.
