The Foo Fighters are releasing a vinyl-only (sob) album of cover versions.
It's a great song selection.   
I've got their versions of Band on the Run, Baker Street, Have A Cigar and I Feel Free already.

But, of most interest to us: it contains the version of Young Man Blues, which they recorded live at The Who's Rock Honors tribute, back in 2008.
