Hi, my name is Chad and I'm a non-programming music geek from West Virginia. I'm generally easy-going but I have some serious Type-A tendencies when it comes to organizing things, hence my presence on MusicBrainz.
These are the issues I intend to focus on.
The changes proposed here for Release Groups are a great idea. I think adding Record Label information is critical. I also believe that adding a recorded date field would be invaluable and resolve a lot of release date issues.
Comedy albums, specifically standup. There doesn't appear to be an universal style for labeling their release type. They get dropped into album, live and spoken word, and I'm not even sure which category would be best. Would a specific category for stand-up be too much?
