I decided to take a walk on the wild side this afternoon and started playing with “works”. I was able to apply/attach some “easy” ones, but stopped short of creating/adding any. I also did not apply/attach a couple of existing ones because they confused me by the amount of “extra” information that came with (all of which had “x’s” to remove each of the extra data (I assume).
In the following case it looked like to me like most of the “extras” are publishers that do not have relevance to my release. While my release on lists Paul Clayton, the works has 8 writers attached and according to secondhandsongs that appears correct (they list only 6).

What do I do here? The “x” makes me think I can selectively remove but does that alter the works record or just my relationship.
I hope what I am asking makes sense.
