How to deal with downloaded music, where the original site doesn’t exists any more?
I have a download of Amy Macdonald’s album “A Curious Thing” from Amazon, from 2013.
It’s a 12 track version, like the original CD, but without the hidden track.
The ASIN of my purchase, B0038XB2R6, doesn’t exists any more. New downloads are e.g. for a 13 track edition.
If I’d like to add a proper release, there are some data missing to me (label, release events).
In this example it might be the same like the original physical release - but I don’t know.
For releases before downloads have been possible, this might be a bigger problem (e.g. a release of the 1980’s).
There is a 12-track-download release of this album, with release date in 2012 for Switzerland.
BTW: On cede.ch I don’t find this download release. I’m not sure if the date is correct.
Since I have my release from Amazon.de (for Austria) this download release might not be sufficient.
Should it be changed to other countries and other dates?
