A couple edits have come about in the past week or so that I don’t agree with, and I wanted to get the wisdom of the community on what is the best and/or correct way to do it.
The ones I’m looking at specifically involve Ed Starink, a Dutch synthesizerist who has released several albums of cover versions of various instrumental hits; for examples:
Looking at the covers of these releases, and the tracks are credited to the composers, while Starink is the “album artist”.
My opinion is that since Starink performs the tracks as well, he should also be credited as the track artist, with composers credited via work relationships.
Others hold that the composers should be the track artists, and sometimes citing Soundtrack style for this (although I wouldn’t consider the releases “soundtracks”, so I don’t personally think that applies).
Thoughts on this would be welcome.
