The Reason for this division was because they all got paid 500
pounds for each song they gave to the album.The original UK cover was nearly the same as above, excepting the title.
There is an ad for 'The Who Fan Club' on the back of the original pressing.
There are also neat little biographies
for each band member that say the Roger drives an Aston Martin like James Bond, that John plays tuba, french horn and cornet,
that Keith has a passion for breeding chickens and that Pete enjoys Stockhausen, brandy and painting.
A Quick One was retitled "Happy Jack" because of the minor hit at #49 in the U.K. Also, 'heatwave' was included on the
UK record instead of 'happy jack'
The following is a "preview" on the back of the LP:
"Right! Sit Down! You think
you've heard British sound, and those British groups, but as the people say "You ain't heard nothing yet". The sound is that
of the Who. Be Careful. It has power, guts and thoughts, and it represents one of the most brilliant groups yet to emerge
from Britain. It also represents one of the most amazing stage acts to be seen in the world today. In this album you are presented
with all but The Who's stage act. The four individual talents of thisc group are showcased here and all the songs are there
own compositions. Writing their own material leaves the Who flying free go experiment and progress. Something they never stop
doing. With these 10 tracks of new sound dimesion and imaginative ideas, The Who will keep their title - The World's most
