No objections to this. But I remember there is a "release is remaster
of release" relationship, a "release is the earliest release of
release" and I'm not sure but I think there's another similar one. It
might be a good idea to write them all together with descriptions and
differences; I'm a bit fuzzy on their precise meanings.
You mean similar to http://wiki.musicbrainz.org/RemixMeansDifferentThings ?
Yeah that could be useful I guess.
Another thing I realized: the wording of "Track is the earliest
version of Track" and "Track is a later version of Track" suggests
that they can be used to link _any_ version of two tracks with the
same name; this would include remixes, alternate versions, etc.
Yes, but reading the description and the wiki page this is not the case. The
description says it *only* is about re-recordings. And that exactly is the
reason why I want to change it. :)
I don't know what "is another version" should mean anyways. Either a song is
remastered or edited (making it shorter for radio etc.) from the original audio data or
remixed (mostly taking the end result as a source for the remix I think) or a new
recording is made. But you're right, I guess we need to collect some border cases to make
it clearer. Also I think we need to note that CoverRelationshipType overrules
never occured to me to use it this way, I only used it (at most a
couple of times, actually) for identically-named tracks on re-releases
For that you should use http://wiki.musicbrainz.org/SameTrackRelationshipType I
So, to sum up: a couple of lists of these "similarity" relationships,
one for tracks and one for releases, with diferences explained and
exemplified, I think would make the issues much more clear (it seems
right to me, but blurry...)
I'm not an expert on sound engineering. Anyone?
