Transfer & Restoration by Prof. Stoned

Prof. sez:

Here's a slice of rare WHO. This is part of the on-going "Prof. Stoned cleans house" series, meaning these little projects have been 
on my HD for a while but were abandoned or forgotten about at some point. Until now...! 

I'm a big fan of the first ten years of the Who, and so it's good to be able to share a little something with you. You may have heard
this kick-ass version of YMB in remixed form on the 2011 remastered version of 'Odds 'n sods' or the Deluxe Edition of 'Tommy', but 
this is the original (and definitive) mix, which seems to have gone missing in the Who archives. 
It may be interesting to mention that there is also an alternate (and inferior) take from the same session available that appeared by 
mistake on the 1998 O&S's CD, and which suffered from a severe speed problem. I read on SHtv that it runs 7.5% too slow.

This song was originally intended to be part of 'Tommy', but ended up being dropped. Probably a good thing, as the definitive version
was later released on Live At Leeds. This recording appeared in 1969 on one of Track's budget various-artists compilation albums, and 
has never found its way on a Who compilation. Although not a very rare record, it is pretty difficult to find in clean condition. This
transfer was made from a near mint copy, and even though the vinyl surfaces are not 100% quiet, it came out pretty damn clean.

Enjoy!
