Its gonna be a good holiday season for music fans...

Out now on Blu-ray DVD is The Who: Kilburn 1977. The collection features the band's infamous Kilburn State Gaumont gig from December 15th, 1977 -- which was drummer Keith Moon's second-to-last performance with the band prior to his death the following year.

The setlist for the Kilburn disc is: "I Can't Explain," "Substitute," "Baba O'Riley," "My Wife," "Behind Blue Eyes," "Dreaming From The Waist," "Pinball Wizard," "I'm Free," "Tommy's Holiday Camp," "Summertime Blues," "Shakin' All Over," "My Generation," "Join Together," the live premiere of "Who Are You," and "Won't Get Fooled Again."
Out now on CD is the two-disc set The Doors: Live At The Matrix, San Francisco, March 10, 1967. The collection features the band two months after the release of their self-titled debut and just on the cusp of international stardom.

The eight-track disc includes "Back Door Man," "Light My Fire," "When The Music's Over," "Alabama Song," "Break On Through," "Fever," "People Are Strange," and "The End."
Coming on December 9th will be the Jimi Hendrix DVD At Last... The Beginning: The Making Of Electric Ladyland and the companion CD Electric Ladyland Collector's Edition, which is sold separately and packaged with a DVD. The set commemorates Hendrix's third and final album with the Experience -- the late Noel Redding and recently deceased Mitch Mitchell -- and was the last studio set released during his lifetime.

The Making Of Electric Ladyland, was originally broadcast on VH1 as part of the Classic Albums series, but the new edition includes about 40 additional minutes featuring friends and musicians who contributed to the legendary album's sessions. Among those featured in the documentary are Redding, Mitchell, former Animals bassist and Hendrix manager Chas Chandler, Band Of Gypsies drummer Buddy Miles, Jefferson Airplane's Jack Casady, and Traffic's Steve Winwood and Dave Mason as well as others who participated in the Electric Ladyland sessions that took place at London's Olympic studios and New York City's Record Plant.
