Members of grunge-rockers Alice In Chains plan to return to an L.A. studio this

weekend to finish two new songs expected to appear on a box set tentatively scheduled

for mid-'99, according to a source close to the band. The group began work on the

songs, its first new effort in more than three years, in September. A label spokesperson

said the long-rumored box set, which could contain as many as three CDs, as well as a

videotape and extensive booklet, is not currently on the Columbia Records

release-schedule for the first quarter of '99.
