#379: A Quick One (U.S. title: Happy Jack) by The Who

5.27.2011


A Quick One (U.S. title: Happy Jack) by The Who (1966)

Favorite Track(s): "Run, Run, Run" and "Whiskey Man" and "Heat Wave" and "A Quick One, While He's Away"

Thoughts: Aw, yeah. The Who make their first appearance on the list, and not their last, I bet.

My favorite of all the songs was the mini rock opera "A Quick One, While He's Away", which clocks in at 9 minutes and 11 seconds. Though I suppose it's more of a pop opera.

This album was good, but didn't have any of my favorite Who songs on it. Decent, good, better than a lot of stuff on this list. But...

Is This Better Than A Hard Day's Night?: No. *Le Sigh*

Side note: I listened to the original 1966 A Quick One track listing, and not with the added 1995 bonus tracks.
