Extraneous Work details on Release pages? Comparison to Artists & Place Relationships listed

An example

Track 21 “Hey Dude”.

The first seven credits after the Recording Artists - the vocals, orchestra, conductor, recorded at, recording of, writer & arranger all make sense and seem of roughly equal depth.

But then there are 19 more Work relationships. These 19 Relationships seem as relevant to this Release as having a list of all the other Recordings that Bassey has made in her career, a list of all the Works performed by the orchestra, a list of all the other compositions and arrangements by those Artists and a list of all the performances that have been at Cardiff Arms Park.

Which is to say they seem to be a waste of screen space.

Am I missing something?

Or can we get them removed?

You are not the first one to notice the overload of information:



Beginners get confused or overwhelmed by this in the relationship editor quite often:


Another issue with a huge list of relationships are timeouts:

While the issue with large releases has been mitigated by loading mediums on demand, using the relationship editor on such releases is still painful.
