I’m in the process of adding information to MusicBrainz for albums by US Christian music group The Heritage Singers.
A a number of the groups of the groups first 20 album releases, are already listed on MusicBrainz in their original Vinyl format.
However, in the mid-late 90’s, the group re-released a collection of these albums as remastered CDs, but in 10-part 2-disc sets.
So, what was original Album 1 & Album 2 originally, were re-released in with the remastered tracks as “Silver Anniversary Collection Vol. x”, with volume 1 for example containing two CDs, one for what was originally Album 1 and one for Album 2.
I’m now looking to add these re-releases from the Silver Anniversary Collection to MusicBrainz, however what I’m wondering is, how should these be added (based on MusicBrainz guidelines?
I’m assuming they should be added as
Release: "Silver Anniversary Collection Vol 1"
which contains two discs
Media 1: CD > with a Media title matching the original release album title
Media 2: CD > with a Media title matching the original release album title
However (and this may be based on my own personal music collection preference), I’m also wondering should/could the remastered individual discs be added a new releases into the original albums release group. With the new release being titled something like "Silver Anniversary Collection Vol 1: "
Now, for my own personal music collection/sorting/naming, I’d prefer Option 2. but what would be suitable for the MusicBrains community?
I’d really appreciate your advise before i go and add anything.
