Nonesuch Clarification

Alex R. points out that N'Such's roster still has a healthy complement of international artists on it - and I realize I misspoke: What I meant was that what's been most ballyhooed and what the Times writer focused on, Nonesuch's "new" boutique-pop direction, is all palefaces: Witness the illustrating image (from the pages of the Times). It's not that it's wrong for a label to take that direction - them white folks are (mostly) making some pretty noises - but that hyping what they're doing as the only or most significant response to the music-biz crisis is way, way too narrow.

I did get a bit carried away below. Mea culpa, cover me in ashes and blow me north to the Hyperboles.
