I recently added a release that is a BMG Direct distribution, and I have been reading some things that are making me question how this should be entered.
The annotation here raised a question, because I don’t know the release date of this particular release (I don’t assume it’s the same as the non-club releases, and all I have is the copyright year, which isn’t necessarily the release year).
Then I found this thread, which pretty clearly states that BMG Direct should be added as a label.
But Discogs’ description of BMG Direct says clearly “BMG Direct was not a label, so do not credit BMG Direct as one.”
So - was BMG a label? It seems to me it was more of a distributor, or a vendor.
