An individual, limited edition, example of vinyl record art made from a genuine, original, 45rpm, 7” single featuring the hit single by the English Rock band, The Who, from 1966, Substitute. Released on the Polydor record label, in the UK, this anthem has been reworked into the shape of a vintage scooter (Lambretta / Vespa).

Substitute was written by Pete Townshend and primarily inspired by the earlier soul single The Tracks of My Tears by Smokey Robinson and the Miracles. Pete Townshend became obsessed, particularly, with the line, “Although she may be cute/She’s just a substitute.” This had then led Townshend to celebrate the word Substitute, with a song all its own. The song remains a familiar fan-favourite and was played at most concerts that The Who performed. Since its release Substitute has been covered by various artists and musical groups.
