Dolly Does "Peace Train": Flipit Records is gearing up to
release a dance remix of Dolly Parton's cover of Cat Stevens' "Peace Train"
(June 17) from her most recent album, Treasures. Really. The original
version of the cover, which featured Ladysmith Black Mambazo singing back-up,
has been retooled by legendary producer Junior Vasquez, as well as producers
Julian Marsh, Paul Andrews and Joey Moscovitch.
The maxi-single will
feature six remixes of the song, with titles including the "Holy Roller Mix,"
Vasquez's 13-minute "Arena Anthem" mix, the "Morning Passage Mix" and a "TGV
Mix." To heighten the divatude of the project, the video for the remix was
lensed by none other than the Material Girls' brother, Christopher Ciccone this
past March in Los Angeles. All we can say is, please don't get any ideas about
the "After the Goldrush" cover!
