Al professore che lo interroga, Christopher Lloyd ama rispondere "J'habite Metroland", adoperando il nome di una fermata della storica Metropolitan Line di Londra, "meglio di Eastwick, più esotico di Middlesex", per indicare la sonnacchiosa periferia urbana in cui vive. "Uno abitava in quella zona perché da li era facile andarsene", osserva Chris, che ad andarsene, insieme all'inseparabile amico Toni Barbarowski, come lui sedicenne, come lui francofilo e arrabbiato, come lui appassionato di arte e ragazze, si prepara con metodo…

Mark Knopfler's fine soundtrack to the film Metroland nicely evokes the picture's wistful, nostalgic atmosphere. Rounding out the collection are late-'70s classics from Dire Straits ("Sultans of Swing"), Elvis Costello ("Alison") and the Stranglers ("Peaches"), in addition to left-field inclusions like Françoise Hardy's "Tous Les Garcons et Les Filles" and Django Reinhardt's "Blues Clair."…

Nel frattempo i due aspiranti flâneurs, fedeli ai dettami dei loro numi tutelari Baudelaire, Gautier e Nerval, cercano modi casalinghi per "épater la bourgeoisie"…

The soundtrack to Atom Egoyan's The Sweet Hereafter boasts an expansive folk/international mix tailored made for the film's atmospheric study of loss and guilt. Featuring original material by Mychael Danna, the disc spotlights the wan vocal talents of Sarah Polley (who also appears in the film and contributes some music and lyrics here) enveloped in lean and ethereal backdrops; the accompaniment comes courtesy of the Toronto Consort and a combo that includes Danna on Harmonium and Kim Deschamps on pedal steel. Also on hand are ney player extraordinaire Hossein Omoumi and flautist Ron Korb, both of whom fit snug on the many Middle Eastern-flavored sides they guest on. In addition to the Danna material, the soundtrack also features numbers by Jane Siberry and the Tragically Hip.

Louis Jordan was at the top of his fame when the 23 recordings reissued on this Classics CD were cut. The influential altoist/singer/entertainer during this era led a version of his Tympany Five that also featured trumpeter Aaron Izenhall, Josh Jackson on tenor and pianist Wild Bill Davis (years before he switched to organ). Among the hits included on the set are "Beware," "Don't Let The Sun Catch You Cryin'," "Choo-Choo Ch'Boogie," "Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chickens," "Let the Good Times Roll" and "Jack You're Dead," but even the lesser-known tracks are entertaining…
