Mish-mash data on release. What to do?


#1


Claimed 1987 release. Catalogue number matches 1987 release.

Barcode does not match any Rubinstein release but rather

Current associated Amazon CA is from 2000 release.

"Have disc. Rubinstein: a life By Harvey Sachs, p488, etc. 1995, Grove Press, NY ISBN 0-8021-1579-9"

And “purcellmarch” has contributed a disc ID.

Way forward:
Remove incorrect barcode.

Then what?


#2

Barcode should be 078635567120 from Discogs, and Amazon has what looks like the right version: https://www.amazon.com/Rubinstein-Collection-Concerto-Rhapsody-Intermezzos/dp/B00000E6A6


#3

I am loathe to claim “good enough evidence” for that disc ID being correctly associated with that release.
Alternative associations appear viable.
EG That the disc ID contributor has got a +1999 release and was referring to the tracklist in the cited book.

I have emailed the disc ID contributor.


#4

In these cases I leave an edit note on the DiscID addition, and if they don’t reply, I remove the DiscID.
Then it will possible be re-added to the correct version in future - if I leave it, nobody will ever know or be able to find out what is correct.


#5

Communications from editor:purcellmarsh who contributed the disc ID.

I may have confused things. I can’t find a Brahms Concerto No. 2 in my collection.
I probably did a cut-and-paste error submitting the ID for #2.

What I have has on the cover

"The Rubenstein Collection
Brahms
Concerto No. 1 in D Minor
REINER/CHICAGO SYMPHONY"

and a right-facing white bust.

discid is
hG48a8RMViKrSzxiln66IGeQBjQ-
which leads to a 60 CD set released in Korea
The correct release did not have a discid. I entered this one.

I’m sorry about my error.

Hi mmirG,
I have Concerto #1 only - barcode is 07863556682. It may be on Discogs as part of the 60-cd Korean set. I can’t find the catalog number 5668-2 RC there at all. I have the physical CD w/case and insert.

I don’t have Concerto #2 in any form. From the picture & barcodes it looks very probable that #2 then #1 were released consecutively as 5667-2 RC and 5668-2 RC.

I hope this helps!

#6

This MB release matches purcellmarche’s description of the cover. And the barcode matches too.
The Rubinstein collection: Piano Concerto No. 1
I’m taking “right-facing white bust” to be a white cover with a right facing bust.

As further checking here is an Rubinstein Collection ebay listing with the same barcode as given by purcellmarch.

However I am unsure how to proceed.
Maybe I am mis-interpretting something basic.

Edit #14098934 - Add disc ID 2011-03
CD TOC: 1 7 282888 150 76448 117603 174583 215765 238240 252138
Disc ID: aNTjWYgQ9wpACjsJVMEuX.Qhjxc-

Edit #47677385 - Add disc ID 2017-09
Medium: CD 1 on The Rubinstein collection: Piano Concerto No. 1 by Brahms; Rubinstein, Reiner, Chicago Symphony
Disc ID: hG48a8RMViKrSzxiln66IGeQBjQ-

I thought that purcellmarch had in 2011-03 mis-identified a release, added an incorrect barcode and provided a misplaced Disc ID here.
And that we had now correctly identified the release as


But if I was correct then I expect those two Disc IDs above (hG48a8RMViKrSzxiln66IGeQBjQ- and aNTjWYgQ9wpACjsJVMEuX.Qhjxc-) to be the same.
They are not.
