Beatles, "1+" (Capitol). Gift-giving season could not arrive without an enticing option for that Fab Four fan in your family, now could it? This set pairs the 27 No. 1 hits on the 2001 greatest-hits package titled, simply, 1 - the biggest-selling album of the '00s, by the way - with 27 short promotional films that went along with them, correctly casting the Liverpool lads as innovators in the realm of video, along with everything else.
The Faces, "You Can Make Me Sing, Dance, or Anything, 1970-1975" (Rhino). A five-CD boxed set devoted to the British classic rock outfit fronted by Rod Stewart - and whose pianist, Ian McLagan, died in 2014 - which includes four remastered studio albums, plus extras.
Perfect Pussy. The feminist punk-rock quartet from Syracuse, N.Y., fronted by Meredith Graves plays its last show of the year, with Spirit of the Beehive and Big Ups, at 7 p.m. Sunday at Second Empire.
The Shondes. This politically engaged Brooklyn punk-rock-plus female foursome with a self-described Bikini-Kill-meets-Bruce-Springsteen attack was heard from most recently on 2013's The Garden. Rhymes with "Hondas." With Callowhill and Hot Tears. 8:30 p.m. Wednesday at Boot & Saddle.
"Petty: The Biography," by Warren Zanes (Henry Holt $30). Superb telling of the story of enduring rock-and-roller Tom Petty. Author Zanes is a former member of the band the Del Fuegos now turned historian. The book's particular strength is its examination of the inner workings of Petty's band the Heartbreakers, and the laid-back Gainesville, Fla., hitmaker's maneuvers as both the leader and a member of the band.
