[mb-users] Question about inconsitencies in track naming

we do support vinyl :) a musicbrainz 'release' can be anything. the only
issue is how we deal with 'sides' of other media - eg vinyl/tapes. it seems
the general consensus is a music brainz 'disc' represents one 'item' of
media (eg one lp/12"/7"/etc, one tape, one 8track :P). that leads to a
certain amount of duplication, with the vinyl release of a lot of 2xLP
releases needing a seperate entry on top of their (often) single CD release.
i'd argue that having them seperate is worthwhile since the act of swapping
the LPs affects the dynamics of a release quite a lot (so does flipping the
individual LPs infact) to the extent that I have a lot of single CD releases
that have a period of silence in the middle to give the impression of two
distinct 'halves' of music.
however maybe we could represent this better in the annotation, rather than
a seperate release. but then, a lot of vinyl releases have/don't have bonus
tracks, so would need a seperate entry anyway, so you know, whilst we're
of course, if a release was first released one one individual peice of
vinyl, then it wouldn't need a seperate entry anyway, and you can just add
the first release date to the CD entry. HOWEVER, *all* vinyl releases are
mastered differently to CD releases, so you could argue that they should all

There is no such relationship.
There is only A "is the earliest release of" B, but this one is almost
useless atm, because most "earliest releases" are not listed in MB,
because they had been released on vinyl.
And using MB for tagging your oggs would become a pain, you had to
check and correct all those tags. It would be easier doing it all by
