Jones raises half a cheer for EMI

The eggs-in-one-basket for EMI that is the Norah Jones album has done well, but possibly not well enough. Never Too Late did debut at number one on the Billboard album charts, but sales were a surprisingly thin half a million.

Further down the list, the US outing of Alright Still managed to limp in at number twenty, with just 34,000 copies sold - not a bad start for most British acts, but since Lily Allen is supposed to have MySpace-enabled superpowers, probably a bit disappointing for all concerned.
