It was shaping up as one of those interviews. Half an hour before the appointed time, one of the star's assistants calls from Miami to say that something has come up, and the interview needs to be moved back a bit. Would 4:30 be all right?Shortly after 4, there's another call. A last-minute recording session has run overtime; would 6 be too late? But even that doesn't work out -- bad weather, the assistant says, has snarled traffic -- so it's closing in on 7 by the time the phone rings again.

If Spanish has been the the loving tongue for Julio Iglesias, he hasn't done badly in other tongues, either.His first English-language album, 1984's "1100 Bel Air Place," sold more than 3 million copies and spawned the hit single "To All the Girls I've Loved Before," a duet with Willie Nelson.That last fact, you might think, would be good reason for Mr. Iglesias to pick a Nelson song as the title track for his new English-language album, "Crazy."Except, "I didn't know 'Crazy' was a Willie Nelson song," Mr. Iglesias says with a laugh.

THE CIVIL WAROriginal Soundtrack Recording(Elektra Nonesuch 79256)Just as Ken Burns' exhaustive documentary "The Civil War" brought a new reality to events most Americans thought they already knew, so too will the music on "The Civil War: The Original Soundtrack Recording" change the average listener's perception of songs like "Dixie" and "Battle Hymn of the Republic." Although none of the performances here quite count as historical recordings, care hasbeen taken to approximate the sounds of the 1860s, from sonorous brass bands to plaintive fiddle tunes.

Both the Merriweather Post Pavilion and the Pier Six Concert Pavilion offered an early glance at their summer concert bookings yesterday, and the difference between the two schedules was . . . well, not quite what you'd imagine.Pier Six, which will open its spanking new Concert Pavilion on July 25, is heading into the summer with a longer season -- shows will be scheduled through the end of September -- and a more musically adventurous one at that. Although many of the concerts announced yesterday will appeal to the pavilion's typically mature audience, there are some fairly hot acts on the bill as well, including Los Lobos (Aug.

If you haven't heard the name Aldo Nova in a while, don't feel bad. You're probably in the majority.It seems the only time his name has popped up since 1982 is when his rock radio staple, "Fantasy," gets some well-deserved airplay.But a six-year recording hiatus, in an attempt to break a recording contract with Epic Records, has paid off. Nova is back recording on Jon Bon Jovi's Jambco label, a subsidiary of Mercury Records, and the album and first single are called "Blood on the Bricks." Nova and his band will be in Baltimore tomorrow afternoon at the Brokerage for a lunch-time concert.

MIAMI -- Whit Hudson's plan to purchase control of the Miami Heat is on the verge of collapse, the victim of internal fighting among the team's partners and a contract dispute with majority owner Ted Arison.The NBA has set a Tuesday deadline for Hudson and the Heat's owners to settle their differences, Hudson said yesterday. Among them: deciding who pays singer and limited partner Julio Iglesias $2.4 million, and a pending lawsuit by another limited partner.If no progress is made, NBA owners probably won't vote on the sale until the season ends in June because "when the team is playing they want a stable ownership," Hudson attorney Stephen K. Roddenberry said.
