New Tunage – Buy me the Floyd box as a gift!!!

New CD Releases, December 11: Pink Floyd, Wu-Tang Clan, Dave Matthews Band
Pink Floyd “Oh By the Way”
Looking to thrill the Floyd fan on your holiday shopping list? You simply can’t do it in a more impressive fashion than by giving this 16-disc box set as a gift. But, mind you, it will cost you a little more than a pair of socks or a necktie–the list price for this set is $257.49.
For that sizable amount of dough, you get a sizable amount of Floyd. Indeed, this set contains the entire Pink Floyd studio collection, from “The Piper at the Gates of Dawn” through “Dark Side of the Moon” and “The Wall” to the group’s last studio outing, “The Division Bell.”
“Oh By the Way” also includes a poster of the band and two Pink Floyd coasters–perfect, we assume, for resting your eggnog this holiday season.

Wu-Tang Clan “The 8 Diagrams”
The groundbreaking rap group finally returns with a follow-up to 2001’s “Iron Flag.” “The 8 Diagrams” is the first offering since Clan member Ol’ Dirty Bastard died in 2004.
The record features work from Wu-Tang warriors Method Man, Ghostface Killa, GZA, RZA, Raekwon, U-God, Inspecta Deck and Masta Killa. R&B vocalist Erykah Badu also lends a hand on the tune “The Heart Gently Weeps.”

Dave Matthews Band “Live at Piedmont Park”
Fans apparently just can’t get enough of the Dave Matthews Band in concert. Not only is the group consistently among the top-grossing touring acts of each year, it’s also managed to do big business with a steady succession of live recordings.
Having recently released the 10th volume of its Live Trax series, which was recorded in 2007 in Portugal, the band now delivers “Live at Piedmont Park.” The set was recorded in front of 50,000-plus fans at the Meadow of Piedmont Park in Atlanta this past September. It’s available both as a 3-CD set and as a 2-DVD release.
