I’m having a debate right now with tillywilly
The editor has been hiding artist into the credited as field (he’s not the only one). Is this an acceptable practice? I had been told before not to, but he says other editors have been approving them in the past. I always understood that we don’t add “with vocal refrain” or “with piano accompaniment”, etc. on recordings/tracks/release. It’s known that the Rhythm Boys on this example are the “vocal refrain”. He has been adding a lot of artists into fields that he knows the performance of credited as “vocal refrain”, instead of just listing them on the recording relationships as vocal. I’m not 100% that I’m right in this and want some input because he’s done a lot of these already. Is this okay?
He also added odd credits like this: Edit #93021728 - MusicBrainz
Hiding Bing Crosby in the name of another artist as “Orchestra” but orchestra was the continuation of Dorsey Brothers. He’s not the only editor I’ve seen do this. This is just not right, IMO.
