When driving in traffic, digging through the glove box looking for it- FYI it's the blue one.

That's what map pockets are for, and who still uses maps anyway ?

“What rap did that was impressive was to show there are so many tone-deaf people out there,” he says. “All they need is a drum beat and somebody yelling over it and they’re happy. There’s an enormous market for people who can’t tell one note from another.” - Keef

Article from the website Analog Planet on the new Artisan Studio vinyl remaster of Exile (vs. the 2010 digital remaster) includes reader comments on the poor mastering of the Blue and Lonesome digital versions. (Note: Artisan in LA is where Exile was originally mastered to vinyl.)

This is great, someone demonstrating how good the original is pointing out how bad the reissue is.
.
The guy who remastered Exile is Stephen Marcussen of Marcussen mastering. He butchered it. No that's too kind, he barbarized one of the all time greatest rock records ever made.
Average Dynamic range of original Artisan vinyl: 13
Average Dynamic range of Marcussen remaster: 6

In addition to the dynamic compression, the Marcussen 2010 Exile remaster clips all the way through. This is a highly unpleasant effect in digital when the top and bottom of the sound wave bang up against the head and ceiling of the mastering range. Bad!

Stephen Marcussen has done this to every reissue I have heard he has done.
The Stones "Blue and Lonesome". He did the digital versions. Ron McMaster at Capitol did the vinyl.
Dynamic range of the digital versions - Marcussen: 6
Dynamic range of the vinyl version - McMaster: 9

Additionally, the Marcussen digital versions of Blue and Lonesome clip the whole way through. All of them.
 
Correction

the average DR value of the vinyl of Blue and Lonesome is a 10.
the average DR value of the digital versions of Blue and Lonesome is 7
By which it must be said, that one track, "I gotta Go", if I remember correctly has a DR of 5.
that track, played through on Audacity, has more red (clipping) than blue (within head and ceiling room)
