I have gotten ideas from this forum on how to add vinyl 45s to the database. Hopefully I’ve been doing it correctly - as a Single using “Title A / Title B” as the release title.
All of the 45s I have are from the years 1954 - 1979 or there about. Most came in a paper sleeve with no other cover. Most from the 70’s were originally purchased by me or my (now) wife. The older ones are from her childhood.
I’ve not seen anything in the forums on artwork for 45s so I’ve adopted a standard that I hope is correct or at least acceptable for the Front and Back art (it’s useful to have Front for when Picard matches the release). If the 45 came in a sleeve, I used a photograph of the 45 in the sleeve as the Front art. If the back of the sleeve is different than the front or otherwise unique, I’ve included that as Back art, otherwise having no Back. And the 45 itself is included as Media. In some cases where I don’t have a sleeve at all, I’ll likely just mark the A side as Front & Media.
Here is one example: https://musicbrainz.org/release/c5f49879-f9ae-4a7c-b6c6-73f2a7e8128a
Can anyone comment on whether this is correct or even appropriate? Or should I modify the release entries I’ve made to fit a different approach?
