So far I have used manufacturing relationships only occasionally, although I could add them for every release I edit (because I do research on it anyway). But there would be considerable work to on the places (the plants). Information on the plants is spars and existing relationships are often wrong.*
But I before I start working on it, I would like to ask if it’s recommended to use these relationships at all. (?)
I know, there are cases, where represses, considered to belong to the same release, were pressed by another plant…
Should I start to add and work on “manufactured/glass mastered/pressed at” relationships?
WEA mfg. Commerce was not relocated from Allied Record Company and not relocated to Cinram Commerce as it’s all the same plant. (and it’s history goes back much further)
WEA Mfg. Olyphant has a correct Discogs link, but it’s not a a separate entity as there’s Technicolor Pressing Plant with all the aliases, but no further information/link.
If those plants should be credited, there has to be at least some information how to identify them.
