After doing a little searching on similar topics I still need some guidance. When it comes to entering a release by a single artist I am uncertain of the proper naming. For example, I have a CD with front cover displaying ARETHA: LADY SOUL. The spine displays ARETHA FRANKLIN: LADY SOUL. Finally the medium displays ARETHA FRANKLIN with Lady Soul centered beneath. What should I do?
Same question with CDs that ie. are labeled “The Coasters: Greatest Hits”. To me, it makes more sense to name the RG The Coasters: Greatest Hits because it narrows down the search. However so many times I find RGs that are just titled “Greatest Hits” and leave “The Coasters” as the artists. Yes, I kinda understand we should “use the most common name”. These are sort of two different scenarios. Can you point me in the right direction?
