Could someone please check these new entries?

There was a 2017 mix. Two song-cycles with 4 parts each. No problem there. The CD has the four parts indexed as separate parts so I added them as separate tracks (with the cycle part as part of the title) and related works.

But then there was a 2019 remix.

The second part of Epiphany was left out of the remix. The LP has the shortened version of Epiphany with parts a, c, and d.
The CD, however, adds part b as a separate bonus track at the end of Epiphany, in the same CD index.

Could someone have a look at my solution for this? Is this accroding to MB standards for edge cases like this? Or do I need to change anything?

Looks pretty good to me (though I’m not the last authority on this, I’m relatively new to MB), but I think, there’s another problem. Should original mix and 2019 remix really be in the same release group? Or is the remix that close to the original that it could have been marketed as the same product?

Ah, never thought of that. I don’t know what the exact definition of a release group on MB is.

I have both versions and they sound very similar except for (re)moving one song. Remix, remaster, I don’t actually know what they’re doing to the music then.

“A release group , just as the name suggests, is used to group several different releases into a single logical entity.” - Is that helpful? Everywhere you look are borderline cases. Artists seem to refuse all attempts to have them properly integrated into the database. :wink:

According to Discogs, it is in the same release group:
Aldi Dallo Spazio ‎– Quasar

But is it a remix then? Is it not kind of different edit of the same recording?
