Edits I noticed:
Double Praise 9 has DEMO ticked in the categories.
- I think all
three four of these should be in the same Release Group. Don’t they all share the same track list? They seem to be reissues of the same album. I would merge all three Release Groups together.
- I’ve also added a few edit notes to the original release Praise 9.
- I notice some of these have been marked as Canada. I think these are all USA (CA = CAlifornia). The mention of Canada on some of these is about Distribution rights in that area.
(More to add… but have been called away for a while…)
The more I look at these, the more I wonder if really they maybe all should be merged into the Praise 9 Release Group. I don’t think these are really “compilations”. Is the Praise 9 CD released as an instrumental only version somewhere? OR are these three CDs really just Praise 9 with extra bonus tracks added?
From looking at this page: https://www.christianbook.com/maranatha-singers/praise-9-great-are-you-lord/7016108848/pd/CD6060?event=ESRCG I think that all FOUR of these are the same Release Group. And the full title should be Praise 9: Great Are You, Lord
What we have here is something that was originally released in 1987 as 13 tracks. (Including the Reel to Reel version)
Then repacked in 1988 with extra instrumental versions to fill up some of the space on the CD. It has then had the cover changed a few times over the years.
Now I look into the Maranatha! Singers page I see this pattern is going on a lot in there… I am about to dive in and hit a few edits \ mergers of Release Groups. These are not Compilations, these are extended albums.
