November 22, 1998

With Bruce Springsteen's "Tracks" collection of vaults material in stores, talk of a reunion tour with the E Street Band is heating up, with a spring trek of North American arenas a possibility. There's also discussion about waiting until fall, with an opening date serving as the first concert in L.A.'s Staples Center. . . .

Busta Rhymes, Q-Tip from A Tribe Called Quest and Kurupt are among the guests on the debut album from Detroit hip-hop trio Slum Village, due from A&M Records in March. Meanwhile, member JD is picking up some hot production work, with tracks for upcoming Will Smith, D'Angelo and Mary J. Blige albums on his agenda. . . .

Tom Waits has produced the first album in 18 years by old pal Chuck E. Weiss--honored in Rickie Lee Jones' song "Chuck E.'s in Love." Guests include ex-X ax man Tony Gilkyson and onetime Fleetwood Mac member Rick Vito. . . .

L.A.'s Wild Colonials are recording a new EP while also looking for a new record deal after exiting from Geffen Records. . . . Tryptich, a band featuring violinist Lili Haydn, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, Wild Colonials pianist Paul Cantelon and classical cellist Martin Tillman, will perform a new score it composed for the classic Russian silent film "Battleship Potemkin" Dec. 14 at the Troubadour, honoring the 100th anniversary of the birth of director Sergei Eisenstein.
