I wonder why lastfm doesn't know that Dark Magus is originally from 1974
Because nobody put that info in the wiki, and/or it's never been supplied as part of a label upload.
well, it was only released in 77 in japan and 97 stateside
so that seems fair
is there a separate field for the date something was recorded
as opposed to first released

Is it me or isn't there a clear guide one what to add to MB in the wiki? Especially in terms of video releases (DVDs and VHS)
Oh don't start this.
there isn't anything about that on the wiki because of the endless and needless bitching caused by it every time someone mentions it.
I keep running in to them lately and I can't find anything about a general consensus
even though we do have the ability to specify the medium type DVD
Well, I like to think that the most stupid of arguments has been quelled already. The "BUT IT'S CALLED MUSICBRAINZ. MUSIC ISN'T VIDEO DUHHHH I HAVE SHIT FOR BRAINS"
But the thing is that the release type isn't specific enough to distinguish between DVD-A and DVD-Vs.
but are there dvds without visual content in the first place? just audio/music
...and how are they played? :-S
There's just no video track, it's only audio.
Should really be using a bluray player to play them these days, the quality is better.
well, the video/audio combo contains music too
stupid argument really ;)
MClemo: what, the one about "but it's called Musicbrainz!!"!!111" one?
It's the most stupid argument I have ever heard. Next to "it looks stupid. to me. but that's my opinion. waaaah".
in general, too many useless discussions which seem to end in little or no results
That said, I can appreciate the current stance on videos with it boiling down to MB is simply not able to cater for them... yet. But what does need to bedone is someone to document what needs to be done first.
so if you want to add that to the wiki and start a discussion with that solely in mind, go for it Prodoc. ;)
I'd hate to start such a thing...
though I would love to have a clear statement one what to do with such releases
intermediate solution: release type 'video'?
Nah, there needs to be a level above the release medium. such as "audio" and "video", and then each of those having their own release mediums.

easier to just wget all of them and zgrepping.
Don't forget the endless arguments and impossible reasoning of IRC conversations too!
Need some input; Working with In My Mind... It is a 2CD best of release. First i think the use of Bonus CD is wrong in this case. The cover shows no spaces between the year and should i convert 'Best of' to 'Best of Bertine Zetlitz'?
