Blur have shared the staggeringly huge track list for their Parklive deluxe five-disc live set, due out December 3. As SPIN reported in August, the collection revolves around the hallowed British band's closing concert for the 2012 Olympic Games at London's Hyde Park.

At the time, as a result of Damon Albarn's flip-flopping, there was speculation that the gala show would be the group's last. Thankfully, they've kept on, no doubt partly in the name of their Blur 21 rarities box set, resulting in enough material to fill four CDs and one DVD.

The first two discs compile Blur's 25-song Hyde Park performance. Same with the DVD, which culls its final shots from 12 cameras' worth of footage. A third CD captures their intimate August gig at the 100 Club in London, and a fourth compiles various sessions and other live highlights.

This gives the devoted listener no fewer than four ways to experience newish song "Under the Westway" and two versions of "The Puritan." Whoo hoo? The 70-odd-dollar set comes packaged within a 60-page hardcore book featuring photos from the summer shows.
