Mash-ups

If a recording is a mash-up of two (or more) recordings the artist should be set to the mash-up artist. Put the two "versus" artist titles into the recording name like so: "Track Title (Artist A vs. Artist B)".

Note that this only applies to the recording, the associated track(s) should be credited as they appear on the release.

If a live bootleg has a proper title, enter the release title as it is on the release and follow the guidelines for live bootlegs for the release group title. If a live bootleg doesn't have a proper title, follow those guidelines for both the release title and release group title.
