Correction was published November 5, 1997 on Page A2. The new Spice Girls album, ``Spiceworld,'' was released Tuesday. To hear selections, call Courant Source at (860) 246-1000 or (800) 246-8070. The Source number is 1042. The Source number, which accompanied a review of the album on Page G2 of Sunday's Arts section, was not updated in time, so people who dialed the number Sunday heard other selections.
A decade or so ago, it was standard practice to get a couple of albums out a year from a hot act -- nobody expected pop sensations to last more than a couple of years anyway. And frankly, it doesn't take years of toil to turn out what the Spice Girls are creating -- simple, frisky pop with no more intent than to get people on the dance floor or to sing along.
