This week, Universal Records is releasing a remastered version of Exile on Main Street that includes a bonus disc of alternate versions of select songs, as well as some previously unreleased tracks. You can hear Keith Richards talk about the now legendary album by The Rolling Stones in an interview that ran this morning on NPR's Morning Edition.

You can also hear producer Don Was talk about the remastered version of Exile and how he scoured the old original recordings for lost gems. He tells All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen that some of the rediscovered tracks just needed mixing, while others needed entirely new lyrics and vocal parts added.

Lastly, Liz Phair, Britt Daniel of Spoon and other aritsts share their favorite cuts from Exile as part of our 'Songs We Love' series.
