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.)

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
