Mea culpa to Barnett

MEA CULPA: In compiling year-end marketshare, our retail numbers-crunchers failed to take into account the labels now included as part of Capitol Music Group’s current marketshare and TEA totals from both before and after the merger with Universal Music Group, among them, the Christian Music Group,Blue Note Label Group, Virgin, Astralwerks and EMI Label Services/Caroline. With those additions, Steve Barnett’s Capitol Music Group has a 6.7 new release marketshare, the same as last year, along with a 6.7 Overall, including TEAs. That will be reflected in the new marketshare chart and story, right here. (12/19a)
