Waltz for a Pig - Obscure Who B-Side

When the Who's single Substitute was released in Europe, an instrumental number called Waltz for a Pig was the B-Side.



It's a very jazzy tune credited to The Who Orchestra, but in fact the Who didn't play on it. It was written by Ginger Baker with Jack Bruce on bass and Dick Heckstall-Smith on saxophone.
