Jaguar

Recorded and mixed by Kit Lambert at IBC Studio A October 20, 1967.
Lead vocal by Keith Moon. Chorus vocal by Pete Townshend.

Pete: "[The Who Sell Out] started with this number I’d written called ‘Jaguar’…We thought of using a powerful instrumental number that we made for Coca-Cola, and then I linked it up with the number ‘Jaguar,’ and then of course, we thought, ‘Why not do a whole side of adverts?’

This track was cut from the final release of The Who Sell Out at the very end of recording, almost certainly for "Sunrise." Previously released only in an edited version on Thirty Years of Maximum R&B.
