Leitmotiv is a Frédéric Truong musical project that plays principally melanchonic instrumental pieces, full of sadness and pain, but opened to the light at the same time. The music of Leitmotiv is inspired by various themes, as the notes of Suspended Moment retrospective suggest. Through the past full-length albums in fact it’s possible see inspiration by cinema, emotions, feelings, war and racism refuse. The last and wonderful surprise from this artist comes from the birth of her daughter Sophie that became his muse. The most of Leitmotiv works were released by own label, Karismatik, that now is dead. During 2002, Frédéric Truong finally decided to close Leitmotiv project. So after the last album Parc Sainte-Marie, he began to release records under its own name.
This four-CD, 100-song set is the best representative body of work ever assembled (or ever likely to be assembled) of the R&B and soul releases from Henry "Juggy Murray" Jones' Sue Records. The range of sounds runs the gamut from ex-Drifter Bobby Hendricks' first hit for the company ("Itchy Twitchy Feeling") in 1959, through the string of hits by Ike & Tina Turner, to the company's last hits some seven years later. Not only is every chart single that the label ever had represented, but so are club hits from the mid-'60s and solo sides by uniquely New York-associated figures. The contents of the box are almost ideal, along with their arrangement – in contrast some other box sets, this one follows strict release order, which is a great way to follow the history of the label (though not ideal for anyone, apart from owners of multi-disc players, who simply wants to hear the label's best-known tracks in one sitting).
