I’m working on this (green) Beethoven box set:
From the editing history it seems that this release entry has been around for quite a while, it shares its release group with another box (let’s call that one the purple box).
I own the green box, catalog number and barcode are identical to the numbers specified for this release. I’ve just uploaded a pile of cover scans since it hasn’t had any yet.
Looking more closely, however, it turns out that the tracks listings for at least three discs are different from my box set: #33, #34 and #39. The number of tracks on my discs does not coincide with the MusicBrainz listings, disc #39 has a complete different work ( Missa Solemnis, op. 123 vs. Christus am Ölberge, op. 85).
If I had to guess I’d say that the purple box has a slightly different mix of discs and these three discs were erraneously transferred to the track listing of the green box. But I can’t rule out that the label (Brilliant Classics) substituted some of the discs without changing the box’s barcode.
So my two questions are:
- Can one deduce from the editing history whether some editor actually had access to the green box and the current listing reflects his version? I’m out of my depth with that complicated editing history.
- How should I proceed? Edit the release so it reflects the contents of my box or add a new release?
Would be grateful for advice.
