Battle fever. Top of the Tree IV, CJ's Landing's latest battle of the bands contest, began last week and continues through February. Winners get free recording time at Tree Sound Studios, a gift certificate from Mars Music, a slot at the 2002 CJ's St. Patrick's Day Festival and other prizes. The first week's winner was The Likes of Which. Contact Gary at gtprod@excite.com for details on how to get on a future bill.

The night the devil went on a midnight train down to Georgia and the lights went out. You didn't think it would ever happen, but courtesy of Sony/Legacy, a new compilation of "story songs" called Once Upon a Song features Charlie Daniels' "The Devil Went Down to Georgia," Gladys Knight's "Midnight Train to Georgia" and Vicki Lawrence's "The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia," together on one disc. Be the first in line for it when it drops Nov. 20.
