The Who singles chronology

"Bald Headed Woman" is a traditional blues song[2] covered and released by The Kinks on their eponymous debut album in 1964[3] and The Who in 1965 as the b-side of "I Can't Explain". It is claimed that Jimmy Page, as a session guitarist, played lead guitar on "Bald Headed Woman" on both The Kinks[4] and The Who[5] versions. However Page is officially credited with playing 12 string acoustic guitar on two tracks on The Kinks' debut album, "I'm a Lover Not a Fighter" and "I've Been Driving On Bald Mountain" [6] and possibly on the b-side "I Gotta Move",[7] but not on "Bald Headed Woman".

The song was also covered by other artists of the time, including Harry Belafonte, as seen in the Bob Dylan documentary, No Direction Home and The Sneekers
