Hi, sorry for the possibly stupid question, but this is about two releases by the Belarusian musician Ivan Kirchuk/Іван Кірчук, which are largely but not completely identical:
“Heritage of the Lost Villages” released 1999 by PAN in the Netherlands and
Спадчына Загінуўшых Вёсак (Spadčyna Zahinuŭšych Vësak, same meaning) which was published 2000 in Belarus. Discogs treats them both as a single album, even though their contents are not completely identical. For most tracks, only the script is different (Belarusian Łancinka vs Belarusian cyrillic), but some tracks also seem to be different, notably the very first track (which is incredibly beautiful appears absent on the Belarusian release. But also the order of the tracks isn’t completely identical.
How does Musicbrainz deal with this? What I did so far is 1) add the diacritics which were missing from the track list of the Dutch release and changed the artist so that it is clear that Ivan Kirchuk and Іван Кірчук are identical, and it seems I will have to wait 7 days for these changes to take effect (why this crazy long wait?). But again, is there any relationship type that is appropriate? Also between the individual tracks on both releases as the order of the tracks isn’t identical
Thanks in advance!
