WYWH has long been my favourite Floyd album, and probably one of my top 10 ever. So my impulsive streak had me ordering this months ago (I missed out on the Live At Leeds 40th box set).

I have never got the hype surrounding Exile despite numerous attempts. This is raw bluesy classic Stones and sounds like you are standing in the booths next to them while they record it. A great remaster capturing the intimacy of a band laying down one of their best albums (Sticky Fingers is the other one). Buy it and mellow out on Gimme Shelter, Love In Vain, You Can't Always Get What You Want & Midnight Rambler. Just listen to the acoustic intro on the title track, yes it's Keff in your living room!!
