How to handle "Artist presents Artist" releases


#1

How should you handle a release when the cover just says “Artist A presents Artist B”.

Version 1:

  • Artist: Artist B
  • Title: Artist A presents Artist B

Version 2:

  • Artist: Artist A presents Artist B
  • Title: Artist B

Version 3:

  • Artist: Artist A presents Artist B
  • Title: Artist A presents Artist B

Version 4:

  • Artist: Artist A presents Artist B
  • Title: [untitled]

Version 5:

  • Artist: Artist A presents Artist B
  • Title: presents Artist B
  • Version 1
  • Version 2
  • Version 3
  • Version 4
  • Version 5
  • Depends (please leave comment)
  • Other (please leave comment)

I may disagree with the some of the edits, but this is correct according to the people involved with the edits and the discussions on the forums that we had over way to put it out.


#3

The release you linked to has a title apart from “Artist A presents Artist B”, so there it’s quite obvious how to handle it.


#4

I would definitely do this. We’d do that for every other self-titled album, and I don’t see a reason why this one should be different just because of the “presents” bit.

I agree with your reasoning, but I do know one reason why it might be different: The “Artist A presents” part is often written much smaller on the cover making it appear like “Artist B” is the title.
