Hello. Total n00b here. I’ve got a question. When creating or editing a release, how does one handle misnamed recordings? Use the mistaken title listed on the physical release, or the actual song title? The particular issue I have in mind is the song Working in the Coal Mine written by Allen Toussaint, and recorded/released by Devo. This song is mistakenly titled Working in a Coal Mine on a number of Devo’s releases. However, the original release, Heavy Metal: Music From the Motion Picture uses the correct title, Working in the Coal Mine, as does the subsequent 7" single release.
Examples of releases with the incorrect title for recordings:
Duty Now for the Future / New Traditionalists
Hot Potatoes: The Best of Devo
Now It Can Be Told: Devo at the Palace 12/9/88
Hardcore Devo, Vol. 2: 1974-1977
Social Fools: The Virgin Singles 1978-1982
There are more, but as a n00b, I am only allowed 10 links per post. For the same reason, I am not listing the releases that use the correct title.
So, does one list/leave the incorrect title as that is the way the release was printed/created, or use the correct title for the song?
