...There are another 10 titles making up the balance of the Godfather offerings for early December....NEIL YOUNG "Brother Ben" 2CD of a solo concert in Milano, Italy with FRANK SAMPEDRO and BEN KEITH on December 5, 1989 and transferred from a recently surfaced master audience tape, first time on CD...BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN & THE E STREET BAND "Thanksgiving Night" documents the complete show at Madison Square Garden in New York on November 27, 1980 - this show is also apparently making it's first appearance on silver disc...BOB DYLAN AND HIS BAND "Down Every Street" 2CD captures the Bournemouth, England concert at the International Centre on October 11, 2011 with bonus tracks from Nottingham, UK on October 11th...GUNS 'N ROSES "Rock In Rio"  2CD features their most recent trek to South America for the massive Rock In Rio fest on October 2nd, 2011...MADONNA "California Girl" 2CD contains her show at The Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, California on July 21, 1987 with bonus tracks from the Cow Palace in San Francisco on April 23, 1985...

...Rounding things out from GFR for December 5th...PINK FLOYD "Happening At The Golden Circle" 1CD - from the release announcement: On September 10th, 1967 Pink Floyd performed at the
jazz club The Golden Circle in Stockholm.
The concert was recorded with professional
microphones on a Revox tape recorder. This is the
only existing recording of a complete Pink Floyd
concert in 1967. It is of the highest quality and comes
as close as one can get to actually being there...the balance of the disc features bonus tracks from the Afan Lido Sports Centre, Port Talbot, UK on December 6, 1969 making this title a very interesting early Floyd audio artifact for collectors
...KISS "Wet Wild Rockin' - The Kiss Kruise" 2CD presents the October cruise event featuring the band off the Florida coast in Miami on October 13 (acoustic set) and October 14 (electric set) and some extra bonus tracks featuring some soundchecks...THE RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS "Come Back Wearing A Smile" 1CD is a soundboard tape from their show at E-Werk in Cologne, Germany on August 30, 2011...PETER GABRIEL (with The BBC Orchestra) "Live At Mermaid Theater" 1CD features his October 19, 2011 London performance via soundboard tape...and last up is NOEL GALLAGHER'S HIGH FLYING BIRDS "One In A Million" 1CD contains his BBC Theater show on November 3rd in London from a soundboard recording...

...The December releases from Beano include the ERIC CLAPTON 6CD Box Set, "Complete Clarkston 1983"(misspelling) and contains his shows on the 27th, 28th and 29th of June 1983 at Pine Knob Music Theater in Clarkson, Michigan...Plus, "2nd Night In Zurich" presents his January 21, 1984 at Hallenstadion in Zurich, Switzerland from an excellent audience source tape...and, "Blue Blood: RAH 1995 First Night" 2CD is another superb audience recording, this one from Royal Albert Hall in London on February 19, 1995...
