When Pink Floyd released “Animals” in January of 1977, the album had a very strange track listing. It only had a total of 5 songs and two of them Pigs on the Wing (Part 1 & Part 2) were each only 1:25 long. Because of the strange track listing and because of 8-track technology Floyd had to make a special version of Pigs on a Wing by linking part 2 and part 1 with a guitar solo.
