That is part of why I am asking. Thing is though… we know all the versions of the release that were released… officially at least. For bootlegs, without any data or anything, if that is the case here, is there value to it, or is it just as valuable as a playlist, which in MB is not value? Also, I consider that an editor did not add a part of their collection, but this was an import add from freedb, so even the “word” of the editor is not here.
I am unsure. I added a lot of bootlegs, even some that start to get a little close to pirate bootlegs. But for me, I still require, even in my own metadata, sources of the release if I am to store it as an album (if that makes sense).
It is weird at MB… I had an editor flat out deny adding a release because it was too close to just being a release made of the track listing for 2 official albums, although it had artwork for it and solid references. But then there is stuff like this, where for all real purpose is a list of recordings with nothing behind it. Me, knowing this variation in how things are done, am seeking the opinions of others, trying to respect both sides of it.
