Many compilations of widely known pop artists include his studio and live recordings, without any notion of that (live or studio) in release title and in its tracklist.
- This 10-track compilation https://musicbrainz.org/release-group/9a20d9e9-b733-3efb-8eec-388bbc49a5eb contains:
- five live recordings from two different concerts (tracks 1, 2, 4, 8, 10);
- two studio recordings with added (by compilers) fake audience noise (tracks 3, 6);
- three studio recordings (tracks 5, 7, 9).
What type should be assigned to such a Release Group?
Simply “Compilation”? But that is not exact, because the releases contain also live recordings, whereas a compilation (without Secondary Type “Live”) refers to compilation of studio recordings only.
“Compilation + Live”? But that is not exact, because the releases contain also studio recordings, whereas a compilation with Secondary Type “Live” refers to compilation of live recordings only.
So, it would be useful to introduce the Secondary Type of RG “Live & Studio” for this kind of releases.
