I have setup musicbrainz database alone in my local machine. And when i search for a particular artist and work For example for the artist Snoop Dogg I am getting only 58 results. The query used is
select artist.name, work.name from artist inner join l_artist_work ON artist.id=l_artist_work.entity0 inner join work ON l_artist_work.entity1=work.id where artist.name::text ILIKE '%Snoop Dogg%'
The result obtained in pgadmin is attached here
But when looked at the musicbrain website there are around 320 items listed
Why the difference in number when searched from database and music brainz website.
One of my assumption is that – a work of an artist is considered as his if he is a part in writing of that work (Specified as writers for work in MB website in the image i shared above). If this is correct, then how can I pull those data also ie, not just 58 but complete 320 for snoop dogg and others too just like showing in MB website
