A bit of guidance please.
A favourite album of mine: https://musicbrainz.org/release/393913a2-7fde-4ed5-8be6-ca5c2c0ccf0d
It was already entered, but I added the download version with the bonus tracks. Hope I did it correctly
The puzzle is that the sleevenotes quite clearly (but wrongly) state that “My Love is like a Red Red Rose” is by Robert Burns. He wrote the words, but this is an instrumental piece and the tune is traditional (part of https://musicbrainz.org/series/4e817004-53ed-438e-96da-88e27fb8d872), so the credit is completely wrong (except for the title). Similar considerations apply to “Ae fond kiss” and “Auld lang syne”. Why should Burns get the credit for an instrumental piece when he was the lyricist?
How should I reflect the information on the release when it is at odds with the facts?
Track listing on sleevenotes is:
5 Ae Fond Kiss Robert Burns 4.37
6 Auld Lang Syne Variations Trad. / Robert Burns 4.05
7 My Love Is Like a Red Red Rose Robert Burns 3.41
EDIT: I should add that the orchestrator of tracks 5 & 7 is not credited in the MB entry or on the track listing with the release, but the sleevenotes say:
I commissioned the
orchestral arrangements from the Irish
composer and orchestrator Paul
Campbell, who has a natural love and
understanding of Celtic music.
It seems to me that he is due more of a credit than Mr Burns (worth a listen).
