Pearl Jam will reissue their debut album Ten in a big way next year, remastering it, remixing it and stocking it with demos, live performances and even a cassette tape. Four different editions of Ten will be released on March 24th, 2009, ranging from the double-disc Legendary Edition to the absolutely stacked Super Deluxe Version, which features 2 CDs, a DVD of their 1992 MTV Unplugged performance, 4 LPs and a replica cassette of the band's famed Momma Son demo tape. Plus, a remix of the album will be overseen by producer Brendan O'Brien, who worked with the band on four albums. The reissue is just the first of many as Pearl Jam gears up for their 20th anniversary in 2011.

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
