July 30, 2008 10:50 AM ET

Creedence Clearwater Revival will reissue their first six albums on September 30th, with each album digitally remastered and stocked with bonus tracks. Concord Music Group will release the reissues after buying back the CCR discography in 2004. The albums getting the deluxe tribute are Creedence Clearwater Revival, Bayou Country, Green River, Willy & The Poor Boys, Cosmo's Factory and Pendulum. The six albums were recorded in the span of three years, from 1968 to 1970, marking one of the most impressive and prolific stretches for any band of the era. Among the highlights of the bonus material include an alternate version of "Down on the Corner" (on Willy) and a "Born on the Bayou" recorded with CCR and Booker T. & the MGs (on Cosmo.)

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
