Mark Kozelek will release his first full-length concert album, "Little Drummer Boy Live," Nov. 28 via his own Caldo Verde imprint. The two-disc, 20-track set was recorded at shows in North America in Europe over the last year and finds the artist backed on several tracks by Red House Painters guitarist Phil Carney.

Highlights include two previously unreleased songs, "Moorestown" and "Unlit Hallway," plus an early take on "Carry Me Ohio" taped in Philadelphia, a version of the seasonal favorite title track from Helsinki and "Mistress," recorded last winter at 4AD's 25th anniversary concert series in London.

In addition, Kozelek will on Jan. 23 unveil an expanded reissue of Sun Kil Moon's acclaimed 2003 debut, "Ghosts of the Great Highway." Originally released via Jetset, the album will now include a six-song bonus CD featuring an alternate take on "Carry Me Ohio," an acoustic version of "Salvador Sanchez" and two interpretations of Leonard Bernstein's "Somewhere."

A live-on-radio version of "Gentle Moon" recorded in Portugal and the previously unreleased instrumental "Arrival," originally penned for the film "The Girl Next Door," round out the album.

Kozelek has been off the road since mid-October; his latest studio release was last year's Modest Mouse covers set, "Tiny Cities."
