Small Faces

March 23, 1997

En Vogue is finishing its follow-up to 1992's 3-million-seller "Funky Divas," with the new album due June 17. Among the songs is "Too Gone Too Long," written by Diane Warren and produced by David Foster, the team behind Celine Dion's Grammy-winner "Because You Loved Me." . . .

The remix bug has caught Aerosmith. The Boston bad boys sent their new single "Falling in Love (Is Hard on the Knees)" to both Joe "The Butcher" Nicolo and electronic avatar Moby for reworking in their distinctive styles. Both are being sent to radio stations, though it's uncertain whether either will be released commercially. . . .

Looking for an interesting activity tonight for Purim, the Jewish celebration of a defeat of a Medieval villain? Local world/trance music band Ras Daveed & Providence is teaming with Moroccan gnawa musician Hassan Hakmoun for a trance Purim at the Whisky, which will be fitted out with decorations for the occasion. . . .

In the tradition of the Nat King Cole-Natalie Cole and Hank Williams-Hank Williams Jr. "duets," Lynyrd Skynyrd is recording a new version of its song "Travelin' Man" with Johnnie Van Zant trading verses with original vocals by his brother Ronnie, who died in a 1977 plane crash that also claimed two other members of the Florida band. The track will be on "Twenty," an album of otherwise new songs due April 29, with the title commemorating the 20th anniversary of the tragedy.
