How to structure "public service" vinyl single

#1

Hi all,

I’d like some advice please.

I have a 7" vinyl recording that is a record commission by the national telecoms company promoting energy saving in households.

The record label and sleeve show:

  • Lyrics
  • The company name: “Telecom Australia”
  • The single title: “Disco Watt Watcher”
  • The attribution: “Written and produced by George Patterson Pty Ltd (Melbourne)”

There’s no label or catalog number.

What fields would you populate when creating this recording?

Thanks,

I’ve seen that Discogs link - I would argue that George Patterson Pty Ltd. is not the label as they are/were an advertising agency. There is also no catalog number.

So my thoughts are unknown artist and commissioned by Telecom Australia. Do you know what relationship the recording/work/release should have to George Patterson Pty Ltd? They were commissioned to create the work.

I think you are correct about G.P. not being the label.
I’d be easily persuaded that Telecom Australia is the label - but I have entered practically no singles and just don’t know what counts. If it was an LP or CD I’d be confident enough to use Telecom Australia.
G.P. Pty Ltd. from my reading of the cover art is both the writer of the song and also the producer.
These would be added using the Relationship Editor I think.

If your cover art is the same as on Discogs then copying that over would be quicker - though if you wanted to make higher resolution scans that is even better.
