New offerings from Sigma, SODD, DTB, plus a special Godfather release...
15 Dec 2009

...There seems to be a lack of exciting offerings in terms of frequency and/or numbers this 4th Quarter for sure. We'll see if anything surfaces or sneaks in as 2009 gives in to the new year. We hope your year-end is treating you well in your daily life, as well as your collecting endeavors.  Lets start the column out tonight with the latest announcements to pass through the net...

Pink Floyd Definitive Rave Master Sigma Label

...Sigma has jumped on the opportunity to redundantly supplement (upgrade?) an earlier release (Rave Master Sigma 03) with the surfacing of the audience master reel of the PINK FLOYD tape from the June 18th, 1975 Boston Garden show, thus the above 3CD, "Definitive Rave Master" that features an alternative source by taper Dan Lapinsky...Below, two new RAINBOW titles being issues by Darker Than Blue..."Ripped Apart" 2CD contains an audience master transfer of their Budokan concert in Tokyo on October 21, 1982..."The End" 4CD set features the last performances by the band on March 13th & 14th, 1984 at The Budokan...

Rainbow Ripped Apart Darker Than Blue Label

Rainbow The End Darker Than Blue Label

...The Godfather Records did collectors a great service by prioritzing affairs and getting the last BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN & THE E STREET BAND concert of the Working On A Dream Tour captured in supreme fashion and issuing "Greetings From Buffalo, N.Y." 3CD set complete with a six-page booklet and mini poster...The band runs through the complete Greetings From Asbury Park LP with the November 22nd show at HSBC Center clocking in at nearly 3-and-a-half hours!...a tip of the hat, kudos, praises to GFR for continuing to be the workman-like label they've been. They could be boot label of the year, easily...
