I’m trying to learn how to enter credits from a vinyl release and I was wondering if anyone could help me read them.
Here is the vinyl in mind: https://ia801505.us.archive.org/0/items/mbid-b305e4ba-7953-47b5-9eb4-80e8a59ddac6/mbid-b305e4ba-7953-47b5-9eb4-80e8a59ddac6-27262050661.jpg
And here is the liner notes: https://ia801505.us.archive.org/0/items/mbid-b305e4ba-7953-47b5-9eb4-80e8a59ddac6/mbid-b305e4ba-7953-47b5-9eb4-80e8a59ddac6-27262060108.jpg
I apologize for the small size, it was the best the internet could provide. In particular I’m looking at this part:
Discogs interprets the credits as [composer]; [lyrics]. I’m not sure how they determined that exactly but I can buy it since it is Coleman’s songbook and he is most definitely the composer on most of the songs. Is there some kind of standard for how to read this credit?
And then under that, the “MJQ–BMI” part. What does that mean? I’m confused why other labels would be referenced on this record unless the songs are maybe covers and I don’t know it?
