is a shorter, single edit of the LP version. On the actual single releases, it’s titled simply “I Just Wanna Be Loved”. However, there is one promotional release calling the same recording “I Just Wanna Be Loved (LP edit)” along with some other mixes. There are other versions too, so I added a disambiguation (“LP edit”) to the recording to tell them apart.
The issue is, on the promo release page, it shows up as “I Just Wanna Be Loved (LP Edit) (LP Edit)”:
because it displays the title and the disambiguation immediately after (albeit in gray). That doesn’t bother me, but someone has voted against it because they say it’s redundant information. I believe it’s not, because they are two distinct pieces of information. One is the actual title, one is a clarification of which recording it is. If it were the only release to contain that recording, a disambiguation comment wouldn’t be necessary, but it’s not. It also appears on this release:
and possibly others.
If I leave it in the title for accuracy, but leave it out of the disambiguation for clarity, someone is going to miss that info on that second release. If I put it in the disambiguation field and remove it from the title, then the first release is not accurately entered.
I’ll link to it here for votes, but I’d really like to hear some opinions on it as well. When I first started using Musicbrainz, I’m sure I changed some titles instead of leaving disambiguation comments because I didn’t grasp some of the concepts of the site. But now I understand the titles should be exactly as they appear on the release, and the disambiguation should be used to clarify if there are duplicate titles that reference different recordings. That’s correct, no?
