If so, Baker and Bruce are on board as is Dick Heckstall-Smith. I'd love to hear the whole backstory of this one!

Sat. 2/14/15 9:03am David in ATL from NJ:
Good morning Bob and fellow Brainiacs.
Sat. 2/14/15 9:06am SmokinJ:
Mornin' bb & group. Now I'll be humming Breakaway to myself all day ;-)
Sat. 2/14/15 9:07am Michael Hurlbert:
Features a nice vocal volley between Carl Wilson & Al Jardine
Sat. 2/14/15 9:13am Reverend Fox:
Awesome Monk tune!
Sat. 2/14/15 9:17am Reverend Fox:
Who dis? Never heard them before. Tasty little tune!
Sat. 2/14/15 9:21am purpleknif:
Music to watch the snow by.
Sat. 2/14/15 9:25am Glenn L:
Waltz for a pig! Think the title was a stab at Shel Talmy.
Sat. 2/14/15 9:25am William:
So this is the infamous Waltz for a Pig.
Sat. 2/14/15 9:34am William:
Not the Who. Graham Bond Organisation.
Sat. 2/14/15 9:36am Glenn L:
What William said.
Sat. 2/14/15 9:40am SmokinJ:
Sat. 2/14/15 9:40am Bob Brainen:
meaning-no Who involvement whatsoever?!?!?
Sat. 2/14/15 9:42am William:
None Bob. Contractual weirdness with Shel Talmy.
Sat. 2/14/15 9:43am Glenn L:
Correct, BB, released under the Who's name only. Contract dispute fallout w/Talmy. Would love to know the lineup of the GBO for this. Ginger Baker on drums, maybe??
Sat. 2/14/15 9:45am William:
Yes Glenn. Usual line-up.
Sat. 2/14/15 9:46am Glenn L:
Thanks, William! Didn't know there was a usual.
Sat. 2/14/15 9:47am William:
Meaning Bond, Bruce, Baker and Dick Heckstall-Smith.
Sat. 2/14/15 9:49am mrmucho:
Hi Bob, enjoying the show as usual. What a great Burritos tune from that neglected second LP.
Sat. 2/14/15 9:52am Glenn L:
@William. Gotcha. Not as familiar w/the GBO personnel as I'd like to be.
Sat. 2/14/15 9:59am Josh Norton:
Missing P. J. O'Connell from the playlist at the moment?
Sat. 2/14/15 9:59am mrmucho:
This is Terry on lead vocals, right?
Sat. 2/14/15 10:10am Mark:
Loved that Butterfield track you played. In the 80s, I was working at a record store in Michigan, and David Sanborn was in signing his latest cheesy album. On his way out, I said to him, "You're on this Paul Butterfield album I have." He said, "Oh, yeah--what was the name of that record again?" I said, "'The Resurrection of Pigboy Crabshaw.'" And he smiled this big smile as it all came back to him. "Yeah! That's right!"
Sat. 2/14/15 10:27am Stuart rose:
Nice reminiscence, Mark. Sanborn still had some sense memory of when he played real music.
Bob- thanks for margot guryan. Her songs have this casually spiritual and sexy vibe.
Sat. 2/14/15 10:32am Moe:
Where Eric lifted his licks...
Sat. 2/14/15 10:39am David in ATL from NJ:
Wow, this is nice. These guys never cease to amaze.
Sat. 2/14/15 10:44am Greg from Bloomfield:
Ooh I love this!
Sat. 2/14/15 10:58am Sem Chumbo:
Can count of FMU for my fix of the Captain. Thanks, Bob, was jones-ing hard!
Sun. 2/15/15 7:03am grape:
David Earle Johnston blew my mind - thanks
