Following the critical acclaim and enthusiastic response to Heavy Sugar: The Pure Essence of New Orleans R&B, compiler Stuart Colman has dug deep into the city’s unique recording legacy to bring about a sumptuous second helping. In addition to the requisite sourcings, the net has been cast wider still in order to focus on material gleaned from such picayune outlets as Rustone, Pontchartrain, Athens, Winner and Spinett. There is a very good reason for this.

Over the course of time, Heavy Sugar has been the title of a song, the name of a radio station, an independent movie and the primary ingredient for a rapturous recipe. How fitting it is that this latter description also epitomizes the ingredients that go to make up Heavy Sugar: The Pure Essence of New Orleans R&B. Just think, if the celebrity chefs of New Orleans were to whip up Heavy Sugar until the peaks start to form, then the hostesses on Bourbon Street would go that little bit further and add any flavour necessary to achieve a creamy finish.

Auteur d’un nombre phénoménal d’opéras (cent quinze lui sont attribués, sans compter le reste d’une production considérable), Alessandro Scarlatti avait soixante ans lorsqu’il composa son dernier ouvrage lyrique, Griselda, pour le prince Ruspoli. Créé au Teatro Capranica à Rome en 1721, il s’inspire du Décaméron de Bocacce sur un livret dû à divers auteurs, dans une distribution exclusivement masculine comportant à l’origine cinq castrats et un ténor.Parmi les enregistrements de cet ouvrage, celui de René Jacobs paru en 2002 avait d’emblée placé la barre très haute. Le présent témoignage enregistré en 2021 durant le Festival della Valle d’Itria à l’occasion des trois cents ans de l’ouvrage comporte une distribution essentiellement italienne distribuée à deux sopranos, un contre-ténor et une mezzo-soprano avec des voix lyriques convenant particulièrement bien à cet ouvrage dramatique.

Recorded during and immediately following R.E.M.'s disaster-prone Monster tour, New Adventures in Hi-Fi feels like it was recorded on the road. Not only are all of Michael Stipe's lyrics on the album about moving or travel, the sound is ragged and varied, pieced together from tapes recorded at shows, soundtracks, and studios, giving it a loose, careening charm. New Adventures has the same spirit of much of R.E.M.'s IRS records, but don't take the title of New Adventures in Hi-Fi lightly – R.E.M. tries different textures and new studio tricks. "How the West Was Won and Where It Got Us" opens the album with a rolling, vaguely hip-hop drum beat and slowly adds on jazzily dissonant piano. "E-Bow the Letter" starts out as an updated version of "Country Feedback," then it turns in on itself with layers of moaning guitar effects and Patti Smith's haunting backing vocals. Clocking in at seven minutes, "Leave" is the longest track R.E.M. has yet recorded and it's one of their strangest and best – an affecting minor-key dirge with a howling, siren-like feedback loop that runs throughout the entire song.
