In the weeks leading up to the holidays, we're going to tip you off to some music-related recordings, books, gadgets, clothing items and more that we've hand-picked from the vast depths of Amazon. The second week of our 2016 Holiday Gift Guide features a massive box set of Pink Floyd's early recordings, the paperback edition of Tom Petty's authorized biography, and a trio of adorable Guns N' Roses figurines. And check out last week's ideas if you're looking for more.

This staggeringly comprehensive 28-disc set chronicles the nascent stages of one of rock's biggest bands, featuring all manner of live performances, radio sessions, demos, and contemporary remixes. ($571.36, also available in a condensed, two-disc edition)




Petty: The Biography, by Warren Zanes
Written with Petty's participation, as well as past and present members of his bands, this book dives deep into the music and experiences of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee.

Guns N' Roses Funko Pop Vinyl Figures

Those of us who pine for the days of acres and acres of records under one roof will want to see this documentary covering the history of Tower Records.
