A Quick One is the second studio album by the English rock band the Who, released on 9 December 1966. The album was also released under the title Happy Jack on Decca Records in April 1967 in the United States, with a slightly altered track listing, where the song "Happy Jack" was a top 40 hit.
Unlike other albums by the Who, where guitarist Pete Townshend was the primary or sole songwriter, A Quick One features significant songwriting contributions from all band members, with singer Roger Daltrey contributing one song, bassist John Entwistle contributing two, and drummer Keith Moon contributing two. The album also included a cover of the Holland–Dozier–Holland song "Heat Wave" and ends with a short musical suite titled "A Quick One, While He's Away", which served as an inspiration for later rock operas that the Who would become known for.
