I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template.

Purpose of EastWest
Why did Atlantic originally form the label? We know that, at that time (1955) Atlantic published/distributed Jazz, Blues, and R&B/Soul. What formats/genres were intended for EastWest?
The Kingsmen were not Jazz/Blues/R&B/Soul, so I assume EastWest was set up for Rock. But the restarting of the label in the 1990s indicate an interest in R&B/Soul and Hip-Hop with divergences like Pantera and AC/DC. So, how does EastWest of the 1990s compare to Atlantic of the 1990s? Why bring the label out of hibernation?
I already know the answer is because Atlantic had transitioned heavily into Rock & Roll after it's acquisition by Warner Music Group in 1967, but that isn't relflected in the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 22:18, 24 October 2011 (UTC)
