Getting to This was the second album by British blues-rock band Blodwyn Pig, released in 1970. The album was the band's last until a brief reunion in the 1990s: Peter Banks joined from Yes after the recording of Getting To This, but the band split up at the end of 1970. The album reached 8 on the UK album chart.[2]
