As far as the list goes I think I've seen more variety in a Best Buy! :D 
Ha ha, after all those trips to Bestbuy in the last 12 years, I think I've bought a total of 1 CD (Paillard's Handel water music, genuinly surprised when I found it)

That is to say the list is narrow (lacking in diversity in every way) to the point of it being stupid and useless. 
Everything you said is correct David. But remember, they didn't have Amazon.com or BRO back then. Plus, asians tend to stick to (or tend to be very loyal to) very few of their favorate artists (i.e. Furtwangler, Oistrakh, Rostropovich, Gulda, Wlach etc - not particularly proud of this trait though) Also I've said reciting the list was just for fun, never intended for cd buying guidance.


I'll go on with solo/duo instrumental musics
