if you don't give some reference (=sleeve) argueing will come up what could
be understood as a "clear indication for a main performer". sleeve can be a
valid indication. if there are different coverart versions then it's clearly
no "clear indication".
but if you leave the sleeve completely out a release like
"Chopin: Piano Concerto No. 1 / Liszt: Piano Concerto No. 1 (The London
Symphony Orchestra feat. conductor: Claudio Abbado, piano: Martha Argerich)"
will be questionable since some people will see the soloist (Martha
Argerich) as the main performer some the conductor some the orchestra. the
cover indicates the soloist. you would sort this to various artists? or is
just beeing the soloist for a piano concerto a "clear indication"? then
maybe this example should be added also.
greetz and thx for the input.
