#1

Sometimes liner notes are very vague and not specify which artist performed which instrument on which track. Should those relationships be placed on release or recording?


#2

When they get vague like that, I usually put it on the release. But that is usually a case of all the notes are ambiguous.


#3

Same as @CyberSkull, when it is not clear enough that the relationship applies this or that or to all recordings, we should set it on release level.
Release‐artist relationships mean « somewhere in the release ». :slight_smile:


Specific per recording and general per release performer, etc. credits
#4

On the release unless you know from other source which recordings they apply to. See http://musicbrainz.org/doc/Style/Relationships#Crediting_an_artist.27s_role_at_the_track_vs._the_release_level

Thank you for the clarification.
