Notes:
"A Quick One" was originally released as Reaction 593 002 on December 3, 1966. It reached #4 in the U.K.
In the U.S. the release was held back until May 1967. The album was retitled "Happy Jack" partly because the 'Happy Jack' single had been a minor hit for The Who there and partly because Decca, their U.S. record company objected to the double entendre in the original title. Released as Decca DL4892 (mono), DL74892 (stereo) it peaked at #51. "Happy Jack" was the same album as "A Quick One" except 'Heatwave' was replaced by 'Happy Jack'.

this was a very nice reissue in japan from 1980, this sleeve obviously depicts the uk/us original sleeve, not the ultra rare original japan sleeve, this lp sounds awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! nice obi and insert as well.................................

Absolutely fantastic CD. I have this and the original UK Reaction mono vinyl and this CD sounds very similar to the original. Much better than the 1995 remixed CD and the 2003 stereo one.

More of a question than a review , of all the Geffen 2015 reissues of the Who catalog, why is this version of " A Quick One " not 180 gram vinyl like all the other reissues in the series ? Or am I missing something ?

this is a really nice geffen us reissue of this 1966 classic, the label itself replicates the original uk reaction label and the vinyl is rather thick and sounds fantastic, basically this is a killer sounding replica of the original uk pressing from 1966

this is a really great mexican copy of the 1966 classic A QUICK ONE lp, what can be confusing is that the sleeve shows more of a 1970 to 73 era live shot wich is an awesome live sleeve but does not depict the right era, anyway i found one of these many years ago and it has a really nice laminated sleeve and again as you can see great live shot!!!!!!! this was not released in mexico until 1972...............................

this was basically the a quick one lp that was released in the uk/europe and australia in 1966 but not in the us, instead this was released by decca usa early in 1967 and they titled this happy jack as decca had a whole different situation regarding there rights to what who stuff they where releasing starting in spring 1966 with my generation.........
