Pink Floyd  The Complete Rainbow Tapes - The Godfather Records Label Box Set

...Unveling a couple of real treats for collectors at all levels, The Godfather Records will release their first box sets of their catalog offerings next week (February 24) with two impressive sets!...PINK FLOYD "The Complete Rainbow Tapes" will house four 2CD sets that present all 4 dates, unveiling Dark Side Of The Moon at The Rainbow Theater in Finsbury Park, London on February 17th (Dark Side Of The Moon Press Release show), 18th, 19th & 20th, 1972 with 12-page replica program and poster.  Given that really only the February 20th date has seen commercial boot release, having the other 3 recordings for the first time on silver disc is a HUGE statement here in 2011...And if that isn't enough how about ambitious offering number 2...BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN "The Unbroken Promise: Lighting Up The Darkness Sessions" 6CD Box delivers 3, 2-disc sets that essentially present a chronological library of just about every Darkness On The Edge Of Town outtake and alternate that could be scraped up with a 48-page booklet and poster...both sets are of course, wrapped in the patented deluxe treatment from The Godfather Records...very cool.
