In order to garner airplay and sales in the US The Who changed the line “I look all white but my dad was black” to “I try walking forward, but my feet walk back”. WALTZ FOR A PIG was credited to The Who, and on some pressings, The Who Orchestra. The truth of the matter was that it was actually The Graham Bond Organisation.
